Shell Zenner comments
I'm contacting you on behalf of First Tiger, a band from Glasgow.
We'd love to hear your thoughts on our debut album, Dedicated,
Last week played the BBC 6 Music Festival Fringe supporting Amber Arcades and recently featured on BBC 6 Music's Tom Robinson Show and BBC Scotland's Janice Forsyth Show as single of the week.
Next week will support The Orielles at the The Hug and Pint in Glasgow.
We released the debut album, Dedicated, in September 2016 and we're really pleased with how it came out. It was produced and mixed by Stuart McCredie (The Blue Nile, Belle and Sebastian, The Fratellis & Texas) and mastered by Calum Malcolm of Linn Records.
You can hear the full album here:
We're also on Amazing Tunes here:
The video for the title track, Dedicated, is also now available on Youtube:
The album is full of syncopated rhythms, lively basslines, off-kilter hooks, and tunes that'll stay with you. The tracks are all different, inspired by a variety of experiences and influences. For Pete's Sake gives a nod to Jacques Brel's Vesoul in its contemporary take on escape from a stultifying relationship. Walking On Air takes the opening lines of Fats Waller's Crazy 'Bout My Baby as a starting point, and uses them to get at a completely different set of ideas. Other People's Taste plays with ideas of identity and originality - and the vanity of small differences - with a tongue-in-cheek reference to meeting your doppelganger.
If you've got any questions we'd be happy to oblige and we hope you enjoy the tunes.
Hope to hear back from you.
