Concert Review: Tigercide Previews Forthcoming EP ‘The Remedy’ at Los Angeles’ Legendary Echo
The band showcased their forthcoming EP The Remedy out for release later in 2019.
Performing on the stage of Spaceland’s acclaimed Echo in the heart of Echo Park, indietronica duo Tigercide delivered a powerful performance this past Wednesday night.
Although darkwave trip hop is a genre not commonly heard today, Tigercide’s sound is fresh and contemporary, accurately capturing the feeling for the ethos of Angelenos anxious about their future.
Tigercide’s sound can most be likened to Massive Attack and Portishead, mostly drawing their influences from the culmination of post-modern punk and the fusion of contemporary pop-R&B-electronica.
Shexist’s ethereal, introspective, and melancholic vocals were hauntingly poignant causing one to look for shadows of light even amidst the clouds of darkness.
Signaling at romantic and mystical meanings, Tigercide’s performance electrified my senses, leaving an afterglow. Notable songs from Tigercide’s performance included the tracks “Murderous,” a single about the experience of being in a psychedelic haze and their title track off of the EP “Remedy” which discusses dropping the curtain on a bad situation by walking away from someone who hurt you very badly.
I personally enjoyed the band’s own rendition of the Brian Jonestown Massacre’s “Anenome.” 2019 should prove to be a highly successful year for Tigercide as they prepare for their forthcoming EP release.
