Tell It to the Volcano - Miniature Tigers

Legbamel Not-Pop

Is it wrong to describe a band with a male lead singer as "twee"? Miniature Tigers reminds me a great deal of Vampire Weekend but without the Paul Simon vibe. They've got an interesting set songs on their first album, "Tell It to the Volcano", that display a sense of imagery just far enough outside the usual to keep you listening. They sound pretty happy with themselves and their creative lyrics but not enough so to come across as smug. It's a fine balance that the band walks with fair success, tongues in cheeks. Have a listen to the title track and give their love song Hot Venom a try, while you're at it.
