Initially a simple home recording that ended up in the studio, independent alternative-acoustic project Tea Time, Tigers! have released their first EP of 2014. Originally the songs were treated as general concepts rather than being directed towards a subject. Although, that never happens the way it ought to and the music of our wasted youth returns to us, whether we like it not.
With Sophie Chandlers sublime and charming vocals and Matt Fergie's ethereal acoustic guitar playing, this is a gleaming independent release, conjuring up the memories of soul searching travel, love and loss. It has all been mixed in with lo-fi electronics along with indie acoustics to bring soulful and meaningful songs to help you on your way.
