Based in Brooklyn, NY, Tiger + Man is an electro-acoustic collaboration between Austin-raised, Tiger Darrow and South African-born Andrew Orkin. Both award winning composers and songwriters, Darrow and Orkin met in 2012 and collaborated on both commercial and passion projects before creating a cohesive sound that they felt best represented their artistic corner in the music industry.

 

THE EP

Tiger + Man's debut, self-titled EP was written, produced and engineered by Tiger Darrow and Andrew Orkin at Fall On Your Sword's recording facility in Brooklyn, NY. It was later mixed by Grammy Award Winner, Scott Jacoby (Vampire Weekend, Jose James, John Legend) at Eusonia Studios, and mastered by Grammy Nominated Emily Lazar (David Bowie, The Foo Fighters, Bjork) of The Lodge.

The EP opens with the mellow, chillwave-style single "Wondering," a song that traverses the awkward intentions of infatuation.

"Wondering" is followed by one of the heavier tracks of the EP, "I've Got Nothing," a fusion of soul and gritty electronica.

After "I've Got Nothing," the EP slows down for their stripped down, synth-ballad, "Alright."

T + M quickly snap the listener out of the soothing message of "Alright" with the second heavy track of the EP, "Lay Me Down." Drawing on the 18th century bedtime prayer, "Now i Lay Me Down To Sleep". 

Finally, the EP closes with T + M's most raw and minimally-produced song, "Paper Cranes," a song questioning the purity, futility and intention of faith.

TIGER + MAN COLLECTIVE

Living and working in New York means being surrounded by artists across every medium and Tiger + Man decided to use every visual aspect of the project as an opportunity for artistic collaboration.

ALBUM ART

Five artists, hailing from Johannesburg, Cape Town, New York and Texas created artworks inspired by the the album, with the only consistent element being the Tiger + Man logo. Artists Joe Voysey, Alexdra Karakashian, Jason Stallings, Deanna Smith and Liona Nyariri's visually delve into the contrasting elements of the EP. 

MUSIC VIDEOS

Tiger + Man has three separate music videos in post-production. Each of the three videos are completely varied in style, genre and medium, including avant-garde performance art, a collaboration between dance and lighting as well as a stop-motion animation.

Directors Mike Donaghey, Justin Scholar and Colin Marchon each bring something truly unique to the visual embodiment of the music, and the videos will be ready for release in November, 2015.        

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

"Blurring the analogue/digital divide, it could be said of Tiger + Man that it continues along a trail blazed by the likes of the 2012 St. Vincent and David Byrne album Love This Giant, and more recent sounds of multi-instrumentalist Son Lux."

-Rob Scher, Bedford and Bowery

"Inspired by artists like St. Vincent, New York-based Son Lux, and British multi-instrumentalist Jack Garratt, Tiger + Man fits snugly in the space between complex and accessible."

-Lara Zarum, Huffington Post Entertainment
