Bio

The music of Goodnight Tiger spills into dark folk and flows into toe-tapping pop, with a dedication to melody and harmony ensuring a consistency in their sound. Comprised of Jill Chrisp and Perrin Date as the front women, Stacy Gougoulis on bass and Mat Marsh on drums, this WAMI-nominated Perth based band has received first place in Ampfest 2010 (a competition won by Tame Impala only a few years prior), and performed at Southbound Festival 2011, sharing a stage with the likes of The National and Interpol. The Tigers have also supported Belle and Sebastian, Kaki King, Whitley and Katie Noonan. Goodnight Tiger's debut single ''Jump Down' is currently available to buy on itunes and CD Baby. Their first EP 'Not Getting Married' due for release on August 13, and features 2006 Rolling Stone 'New Guitar Gods' list Kaki King as a guest musician on lap steel. Keep your ears pricked.

It's a brood-ier track but by no means difficult to listen to. It's dressed up in lush instrumentation that keeps me coming back and admiring what Goodnight Tiger have going on.
