East London's Tiger cats return with their new album and first release for Fortuna POP! Mysteries is vividly emotional and sonical-ly expansive, blending the very best of indie pop with complex song structures, lush production and beautiful arrangements. Tiger cats combine the talents of songwriter, singer and guitarist Duncan Barrett with his brother Giles on bass, Laura Kovic on keyboards and vocals, and Jonny Evans on drums, as well as recent recruit Paul Rains from Allo Darlin' on guitar. And on Mysteries they're joined by living legend Terry Edwards (Gallon Drunk / Tindersticks), who contributes saxo-phone and trumpet on several tracks. Tiger cats have toured across Europe, playing at Primavera and appearing on Spanish TV, while back in the UK they've appeared at both Indietracks and End of the Road festivals. Many of the songs on the album have been live sta-ples, starting off one way and mutating in to something totally different, giving the songs time to grow and develop before heading in to the studio. And once they did head in, bassist Giles Barrett's day job at London's legendary Soup Studios allowed the band nearly unlimited time to get deeper in to the recording process - so deep that it verged on insanity. Mysteries is the sound of a band of outstanding musicians fulfilling their potential and using their talents in the studio to realize their musical vision, retaining their infectious hooks, their heart and their sheer danceability, and coupling it with a bright new contempo-rary sound. Superbly crafted and full of personality, Tiger cats' second album suggests that they won't remain a mystery much longer.
