Yeah, so that's the cover of Tigercity's new EP, Pretend Not To Love; white horses galloping on a pristine beach. Cheesy, right? Well, it actually suits Tigercity's sound remarkably well. You see, Tigercity sound like a dance-pop band straight out of the eighties. But, strangely enough, it works for them. I listened to Pretend Not To Love for the first time a few days ago, and wrote it off as a cute, if unremarkable, distraction. Then today, as I was drudging my way through one of the metal albums on my desktop, I randomly thought, "I want to listen to Tigercity again". And so I did, and it's undeniable this time; I love this EP. And once you cut through your own inhibitions about this style of music, I'm sure you'll feel the same way.
