Indie duo Fetch Tiger reveal new single ‘Brand New’
Partially inspired by a scene in Hulu’s Normal People, ‘Brand New’ follows a serendipitous encounter between the narrator and his former crush at their high school reunion.
The song was recorded in London’s Strongroom Studios, produced by Music Producers Guild’s 2020 Breakthrough Engineer Of The Year, Grace Banks, and mastered by Matt Colton (Arctic Monkeys, Coldplay).
Woven between spiralling keyboard riffs and an infectious bass groove, the lyrics follow the narrator through the night, as he longs for his old friend to acknowledge his transformation, hoping it will be enough for her to see him in a new light.
Receiving previous praise from Spotify editorial’s ‘New Music Friday’, ‘Evening Indie’ & ‘Lo-Fi Indie’, and independent curators such as Alex Rainbird and Mahogany, the future is bright for Fetch Tiger.
Sharing her thoughts on the release, Fetch Tiger state, “When writing Brand New, we were drawn to the setting of a school reunion. In those moments when you reconnect with people you haven’t seen in years, you start to notice how much you’ve changed.
But at the same time, when you’re suddenly surrounded by that same bubble of faces and memories, it can play with your mind a bit. Old, forgotten feelings sneak up on you and sometimes it’s hard to tell what’s real and what’s just your mind settling back into what it remembers.”
Set to release a debut EP ‘Preparation to Pretend’ later this year, the band are set to release their second single from the EP ‘Peter’ next month.
