Americana. It’s right there in the name, and when you hear it the mind wanders to rural towns, back porch sing-a-longs, and even a little country twang. Rarely does one think, London though, right? Well, the thing about music is that while it may be born and bred geographically in one area – the magic of sound is that it can and does travel the globe. Keith Urban is an Aussie doing country music, much like The Tiger Moths are across the pond with their incredible Americana ways, especially on their latest, “Feel It Burn.”
Inspired by not only a genre that many think of as stateside, but The Tiger Moths also incorporates a lot of nostalgic undertones throughout their music. “Feel It Burn” has this airy ‘60s feel that plays along nicely with the singer-songwriter charm that is reminiscent of the ‘70s. Musically, this song captures a time, but lyrically it evokes an emotion we don’t hear too often in song and that is anticipation. At least once in our lives, we’ve waited for someone who just did not show up. That is what this song displays in an entertaining song that will leave you humming the chorus long after it’s done.
The Tiger Moths take the past and make it anew with their style that celebrates a golden era of music, but the way they write and deliver is something modern music fans can and do appreciate. So much so, The Tiger Moths managed to make the top 20 finalists in the Isle of Wight Festival 2021 New Blood competition. Impressive given there were over 5,000 bands that tried to make it. If “Feel It Burn” is any indication of how they’ll do, they’re going to fare just fine in the finals.
“Feel It Burn” is available now on all major music and streaming platforms.
