  4. The New Tigers - Don’t Know Where To Go

    A brand new video from The New Tigers for the track Don’t Know Where To Go, taken from their latest album The Badger.

    This is how the band describe the video:

    "The video for "Don’t Know Where to Go" is where the actual sound waves of the music and the images they invoke shake hands. The grain on the speaker cone brings visible the mass of the music, whilst in the midst of it lies the band behind the music. The imagined and the factual interact with each other finally merging into a perfect blend of the two. The video is inspired by Gary Hill’s video art "Mediations". Overhead projector visuals by Stefanel Oey. Directed by Appu Jasu"

    Das Klienicum

    Nordische Musik 4/6

    Guthoerenistwichtig 91/100

    7 Bit Arcade Band of The Day

    When You Motor Away “ The Badger is the sound of a band growing up in fine style.”

    The Line Of The Best Fit Interview

    Lyrics On My Wall Interview Sept.2013.

    The Arts Desk (UK)  “Turku’s The New Tigers win with a late-Eighties indie-influenced twinkly guitar pop. Equal parts My Bloody Valentine, Galaxie 500, The Pastels and Sarah Records, The New Tigers rewind the calendar with gusto and charm.” Kieron Tyler

    Prefix Mag August 2013.

    JaJaJa Interview April 2013

    Prefix Magazine ”We hope The New Tigers keep up their restless energy and liberate more from tracks from their upcoming record before the snow returns to blanket Finland.” Autumn Andel, April 2013

    Austin Town Hall “ there’s a playful attitude that wraps itself around the ramshackle drumming and ringing guitar sound. I like the fact that the group is still sticking to writing longer songs, at least that’s what’s evidenced here; it allows for various movements within each song, which always excited me.” August 2013

    When You Motor Away  These guys write greats songs, have a great sense of melody, and wrap it all together in a fuzzy guitar package” April 2013.
