For the past few years, five young friends from Scranton, PA known as TIGERS JAW have been
playing their brand of upbeat yet melancholy indie rock, captivating nearly everyone in the room
each time. The subtle yet massively clever lyrics combine with music that moves with such youthful
exuberance even the most jaded listeners will look back to their more careless days. The debut
from TIGERS JAW may wear its influences on its sleeve, but instead of a repetitive list of soundalike
bands, themes such as death, friendship, and growing up are tackled from an endearing and
hopeful perspective that is almost impossible not to relate to.
