about

Isle of Dogs, the debut album from East London indiepop band Tigercats, will be released on CD (Acuarela) and 12" vinyl (Fika Recordings) on April 9, 2012. With 11 songs as heartfelt as they are fantastically catchy and infectious, the band are well in to their stride: enthusiastic, confident, charismatic and fun-loving. Recorded in the newly-rebuilt Soup Studios in Limehouse, underneath legendary east-end ukulele mecca The Duke of Uke, and in a rickety railway arch in Hackney, Isle of Dogs has the band’s adoptive home of East London written in its bones. The upside-down world of the island of skyscrapers looms large in album opener and towers over the subsequent tracks as they wind their way past the street-corners and canals of the neighbouring boroughs. But this is no dry guidebook. These are songs about finding a way to live.
