Tigers Eye: “Goodbye Again”

It’s a new week and nearly a new month so might as well break into some new music, right? Today we have the privilege of premiering the first-ever studio single from a fresh outfit – Tigers Eye. Like their namesake quartz, this quartet has a more exotic appeal than many of Austin’s other musical marbles, thanks to their mining of indie, surf, and psych.

Tigers Eye’s spent the past year earning their stripes with a series of live performance videos, including several covers that tip us off to some of the band’s inspirations like Arc De Soleil, Velvet Underground, Jimi Hendrix, Allah-Las, and Khruangbin. And speaking of live performances, Tigers Eye plays their maiden single release show 8PM next Tuesday at Mohawk alongside Trace of Lime and Buzzard Company. So while we don’t have a concrete timeframe for when the group drops their debut full-length, we did just get our paws on the record’s first offering, “Goodbye Again”.

Clocking in at just under four minutes, “Goodbye Again” makes us ready to great spring and summer with a grin, thanks to an upbeat arrangement, driving rhythms, and super catchy melodies – all of which demand we keep a close eye on these cool cats moving forward.
