I love the contrast of chipper synth loops against the angsty vocals. Father Tiger has obvious influence of Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys, and Erasure. And it’s no wonder, this song could have been out in the 80′s and nobody would be the wiser. To clarify, in my opinion, that is a compliment. I love the rebirth of 80′s sounds.
Father Tiger is made up of John Russell and Greg Delson, both hailing from Southern California. From what I’ve seen Delson has mad skills on a vintage analog synthesizer. Check it out.
