Tigers on Fire

Tiger Saw Tigers on Fire

(reissue of out-of-print 2007 album on Tract Records)
Tigers on Fire, Tiger Saw’s fourth album, sees the Massachusetts-based musical collective expanding their sound to explore basement soul, back porch stompers, breezy sambas, and bedroom hymns. On this recording, the band utilized a four-person horn section, as well as a wide range of special guest vocalists and players.
On Tigers on Fire, Dylan Metrano’s writing explores of the joy he’s found in soul music, basement dance parties, house shows, and the electricity of attraction. Other songs contemplate mortality, long-distance romances, and the lives of German prostitutes.
