About Three Trapped Tigers
Almost five long years since the release of their acclaimed debut album Route One or Die, London’s Three Trapped Tigers announce the release of their second full-length, Silent Earthling, due April 1st on Superball Music.
“I think the problem for anyone striving to create their own sound is, once you – hopefully – have achieved that, how do you expand that whilst maintaining it?” asks guitarist and keyboard player Matt Calvert of himself on the evolution of Three Trapped Tigers. The answer in this instance is really rather a simple one and it is to be found within the glorious, eclectic and exhilarating Silent Earthling, an album that carries forward the unique idiosyncrasies the group have shaped for themselves, whilst simultaneously expanding into previously unexplored territory.
For the unacquainted, Three Trapped Tigers are a band for which genres and labels struggle to keep up; they move – often at breakneck speed – from screeching, effect-laden guitars, an arsenal of glistening sci-fi synths, pummelling sub-bass, colossal riffs and audacious drum patterns that both underpin and define their unique sound. As anyone who has seen their incendiary live shows will know, trying to pinpoint what makes the group such a force is a difficult thing to do. On stage they are something of a vortex, creating a swirling mass of layered sounds that sucks one in, possessing that rare ability of managing to sound complex and fluid whilst eschewing any feelings of pomposity or sterility – in full force Three Trapped Tigers feel both gracefully intelligent and wildly primal, gargantuan yet melodic.
