Tigercub Have Shared The Animated Video For ‘Blue Mist In My Head’

Their new album, “As Blue As Indigo” is out now via Blame Recordings.

Their second album, ‘As Blue As Indigo’ was released in June this year, and received excellent reviews from the alt and indie press. The album was produced by Jamie Stephen Hall (frontman), with co-producing help from Adrian Bushby, who has previously worked with Foo Fighters and Muse, the album was also mixed by Tom Dalgety, who has worked with Royal Blood and Pixies! It’s no surprise then that the band are currently touring with Royal Blood, and have another tour date with the band in September.

Following on from their successful dates with Royal Blood, and a performance at the Download Pilot event earlier this year, the band have now released the animated video for their track, ‘Blue Mist In My Head’. The band worked with animator and director SKUMBAGOVICH for the new video, and had this to say about it;

The crux of the music video is the feeling of viewing life as though through a screen – no agency, no motivation, just dispassionately watching events unfold around you as you sink into yourself. Tigercub wanted to use disjointed TV imagery as a vehicle to talk about depression and detachment, so most of the video is set behind inside a continuous rabbit hole of old fashioned CRT screens that reveal more screens within.“

After the remaining date with Royal Blood, Tigercub are set to embark on a headline tour of their own across November and December of this year. The tour will see the band travel the length and breadth of the country, and the full tour schedule is as follows:

Their latest album features topics including anxiety, depression, toxic masculinity, the death of his grandmother and the recent suicide of a close friend; all of this in turn began spinning the lyrical thread that ties the entire record together. Speaking about their latest album, Jamie says:

“I never really felt in the past that I could talk about really personal things. I’d always used a mask. It’s quite easy to do that because you’re not exposing yourself in anyway. I’d always subconsciously tried to shy away from talking about myself,” he notes. “I didn’t want to do that anymore. I wanted this to be about me and process my emotions for the first time. I think that’s made us more genuine and authentic as a band”
