Pull Tiger Tail

Pull Tiger Tail

Although it's been almost a year since I first started writing about Pull Tiger Tail, I seem to like the young band from Stratford-Upon-Avon more and more every day. The trio put a bunch of new songs online recently, which appear to be a combination of b-sides and possible tracks for their forthcoming debut album. If these songs are any indication, the record will be an exuberant journey from start to finish.

I definitely knew that Pull Tiger Tail had a knack for writing dance floor anthems after hearing the opening strains of "Animator" and "Mr. 100 Percent." What I didn't realize is that they had so many hits up their sleeves! The incredibly named "Tom Waits For No Man" is made up of little more than a bubbly vocal line, repeated over somewhat nondescript guitar, synth and drums. Although this might be a mere fragment of a song for a lesser band, Pull Tiger Tail ultimately makes it seem like a fleshed out, energetic hit... one that will seep its way into your brain and stay there for a week.

The band also shows previously unheard depth on the moody "Light Turns Red," but I'll save writing about that one for another day. For now, you can check that song out on the band's Myspace page.
