My tiger my timing

If it’s good enough for Morissey it’s good enough for anyone. Mixing up-beat harmonies with lyrical torment is tried and tested formular, which My Tiger My Timing have adopted with aplomb.

Their second single, I Am The Sound, mixes their up-beat synth driven sound with a narrative of unrequited love that would make the miserable Manc proud.

In the place of Johnny Marr’s funktastic licks, are pulsating beats and disco grooves which firmly propel the concept into the 21st century. Refreshingly, their synthesisers posses a quality that many of their contemporaries lack- an actual melody, which leaves a lasting impression. Combined with Anna’s sultry vocals, the two melt into pure synth-pop gold.

My Tiger My Timing have been favourites of Addict Music for some time now and if they keep producing indie disco hits as good as this their début album should be well worth the wait

[rating:4.5]
