Tigercub premiere video for vital new track, ‘Memory Boy’

For anyone who'd frustrated with the news.
Brighton trio Tigercub are today premiering their video for ‘Memory Boy’ – check it out below, first on Dork.

The scathing and hard-hitting track laments the poor treatment of refugees, and is taken from the band’s upcoming debut album, ‘Abstract Figures In The Dark’, set to land on 11th November via Alcopop! Records.

“I wrote this when the refugee crisis was all over the news,” explains frontman Jamie Hall. “I had this sickness in my stomach from all the fucking suburban right-wingers out there were complaining that the country was ‘full’ amongst other things almost in complete disregard that these people were fleeing from persecution. There were even politicians using it to serve their own political agenda.

“I just felt so frustrated and totally unrepresented – so the lyrics here represent this weird conversation I’m having with myself internally, a cocktail of disgust, reasoning and despair… Trying to make sense of what I’m seeing in real time.

“They say all of your best comebacks come to you 2hrs after the argument has finished but this song shoots from the hip with a burst of aggression and absolutely zero restraint. In hindsight I could have made the words more linear and coherent but it just wouldn’t feel as urgent, and wouldn’t truly represent how emotionally scattered my life is becoming.”
