Aussie Alt-Pop Group Tigertown Tackle Mental Health With 'Come My Way': Premiere
The quartet also announce the release date for their forthcoming 'Warriors' EP.
Making music is a family affair for Aussie alt-pop outfit Tigertown, which is made up of husband-wife duo Chris and Charlie Collins along with Chris' siblings Alexi and Elodie. So it's no surprise that the group's whimsical, tribal-tinged sound oozes chemistry, earning them supporting gigs with Tove Lo and Vérité and starting Nov. 4, a string of dates with Great Good Fine OK.
Adding to the hype is Tigertown's latest single off upcoming EP Warrior, "Come My Way," premiering today (Oct. 25) on Billboard. This time around, Tigertown employs warm, bouncy synths, cascading keys and an anthemic chorus you can't help but chant along: "if you're coming my way / no one's ever gonna reach us." And though the group's sound is bubbly and infectiously joyous as ever, the new offering deals with a serious topic: mental health.
"We wrote 'Come My Way' last year in Nicaragua with our friend [British songwriter] James Flannigan. It's about helping someone through a time of depression," Chris tells Billboard. "We make ourselves so emotionally vulnerable these days, which can be great but it means, now more than ever, we need to be looking out for each other always."
Along with the new song, which follows up the EP's previously released title track, the group also announces today the release date and tracklist for Warriors. Tigertown's third EP drops Nov. 17 via Atlantic, and will span four tracks including one with Neon Gold Records co-owner Lizzy Plapinger performing as LPX.
