Bio

China Tiger are no strangers to the Australian live music scene, consisting of Sydney based musicians Jack Scott, Clayton Beranek, Jake Stiles and James Swanson, who have all done their time performing in pubs, clubs and concert halls around the country. Born of a desire to create something that feels completely new, fresh, exciting and energetic, China Tiger boldly fuses alternative pop, psychedelia and indie rock in a way that channels both the anthemic energy that the 70s and 80s held, and the driving dance inspired force of rock and pop today.

Stiles immediately pulls you in with lyrics that challenge current societal values, encourage introspection and self analysation, and manage to find themselves stuck in your head for days on end, driven home by soaring lead guitars and ear-worm synth lines performed by Jack Scott.

Though still young, China Tiger are ready to open the conversation on life, love, identity, society and death. The skateboarding legend Tony Hawk gives his approval to the young band and shoutouts the Sydney locals via video. Bursting onto the scene in 2019 with lead single 'Belly Button', China Tiger are determined to hook you in and have you singing along, long after the band has left the stage.

Strong debut from this group. On alternate listens you'll pick out the vocal as your fave part and then it's the modernised indie rock style and then it's the slow electronic groove and then...you get the picture.

Slicked back and self-assured. This is going on someone's 'make out playlist' as we speak.

this has such a cool, skuzzy swagger to it and if you like music laced with a thick psych groove then you'll be spreading this on your toast in no time.
