Sydney six-piece Tigertown are one of the winners of our Harvest Festival competition. They'll be opening Harvest Sydney with their blissful alternative pop on Saturday November 17 at Parramatta Park.
Tell us about your music - how did you develop your sound?
When Charlie and I (Chris Collins) met we were both in our own bands and both felt a bit restless. We started writing and recording songs in my bedroom. It was also the first time either of us had really co-written anything so the sound definitely started then. Since the first EP, we have had all our brothers and sisters playing with us so the sound has grown from bedroom songs to more of a band sound now.
You’re one of the winners of our HARVEST competition. What can Harvest punters in Sydney expect from the Tigertown live show on Saturday 17th November?
We've just finished two pretty big tours so we feel pretty well oiled. We're playing all of our new EP and a bunch if new tunes as well. We like visuals so we're working out what we can bring from our music videos.
What most excites you about playing and attending Harvest 2012?
We're really excited to see Sigur Ros play. I think there'll be a lot of learning that day. Keen to see how all the big guys do it. Also really excited to play on a festival stage.
What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?
Make sure your belt matches your shoes. My Grandpa.
What’s coming up for you in the last bit of 2012 and looking into 2013?
We have a new EP worth of songs ready to go so we are going to be getting into that for the rest of the year. Plus a couple of festivals and then hopefully a new EP to show everyone in the new year.
