Tigercub announce new album ‘The Perfume Of Decay’

Check out lead single ‘Play My Favourite Song’ now.

Set for release on 2nd June via Loosegroove Records, Brighton’s Tigercub have announced their new album ‘The Perfume Of Decay’. “‘The Perfume of Decay’ is set at night,” the band’s Jamie Hall explains. “It was written at night, I recorded all the vocals at night, and it is at night when my thoughts race and uneasiness pours through me like running water. Under the glimmer of moonlight, my apprehension ebbs and flows like the tide and it doesn’t stop until the morning. Perfume is a diary of my emotional journey from dusk to dawn, an anxiety-fueled voyage through the storm. Lyrically, at points, it is almost a stream of consciousness. I sat up late and wrote the words down as they flashed before my eyes. “I use my songwriting as a form of catharsis — a tool to examine my anxiety and insecurity about growing older and how those emotions seem to lead me towards turmoil. I pour those feelings into my lyrics and only then can I move on from them.” Sharing new single ‘Play My Favourite Song’ alongside the news, Jamie adds, “I realised that without music I am alone, without sounds to occupy my brain intrusive thoughts begin to swirl and unease and sadness rises within me, so play my favourite song because silence makes me feel low.” Have a listen to ‘Play My Favourite Song’ below. ‘The Perfume Of Decay’ Tracklisting: 1.
