With music instantly accessed at the touch of a button, it seems that the urge to pigeonhole bands as quickly and neatly as possible has been driven to ever more extremes in recent years. Good Tiger, however, forge their own path. Blending their influences in a manner that defies lazy classification sets them apart from their contemporaries, imbuing everything they do with a distinctive sound and feel, and with We Will All Be Gone, the band have dramatically built upon their stunning debut, 2015's A Head Full Of Moonlight.
Every track has a definitive character of its own, and none stay in a single gear, all of them dynamic and textured as they evoke various tones and moods. "Salt Of The Earth," for instance, crashes to life with a chunky, timeless rock riff against a widescreen chorus of almost impossibly vast scale, which stylistically different and explores different feelings to those found on "Grip Shoes," which mixes post-hardcore influence and the dreamiest of pop, or "Such A Kind Stranger," which is as edgy as it is seductive.
With various members contributing lyrics there is a mixture of perspectives offered, but as with the music there is a real sense of cohesion, emphasizing the connection between the five men, with discussions of human interactions, emotions and the psyche pushed to the fore.
