Indie folktronic group, OLIVE TIGER, is proud to announce the release of their debut track, “Find Myself.” The track explores the power inherent in knowing something is harmful but choosing that destruction anyway. Their first album, UNTIL MY BODY BREAKS, is set to debut Summer 2016.
OLIVE TIGER is driven by the obsessive need to bring imagined sounds to life, creating experiences of beauty and profundity in the process. Olive’s haunting vocals are backed by seductive rhythms with an electronic tinge. The result lands somewhere between My Brightest Diamond, tUnE-yArDs, St. Vincent, and Andrew Bird. The group, which once consisted of up to 7 people, is now made up of Olive (vocals/guitar/cello/looper), Jesse Newman (violin) and Dane Scozzari (drums). The New Haven Independent says the “obsessive vocal layering’s and lilting but muscled voice recall Florence Welch, Fiona Apple, Andrew Bird and Iron & Wine.”
Those who’ve had a chance to see the group live notice the “culminations of strings” and “fierce solos” which Neat Beet describes as a “definite attention-grabber.” You can catch the band live in The Brooklyn and Connecticut areas. Their upcoming shows include Elm City Folk Fest at New Haven’s Cafe 9 on April 17th, and The Way Station in Brooklyn on June 11th.
