Melbourne sextet ‘The Tiger & Me’ are not afraid to explore each end of the musical spectrum with their sound being described as ‘charming pop’, ‘explosive dirty rock’ and ‘dark-hued folk’. Their new single Made it to the Harbour sits clearly in the pop folk foot-tappin’ category.

Coming in at just under two and a half-minutes, ‘Made It To The Harbour’ breaks convention in form. Made up of three verses and two choral instrumentals, the song is essentially an extended crescendo, achieved by gradual introduction of instruments playing short, live, loops.

By the end, Hammond organ, Indian tabla drums and a chorus of singers have joined the band’s regular instrumentation to provide an energetic climax.

Made it to the Harbour is the follow up single to Pantomime, the infectious pop tune which was the first release from the band’s second full length album, The Drifter’s Dawn.

After teaming up with producer Steven Schram (Little Birdy, The Cat Empire, San Cisco) they spent countless hours working together in the studio to create an album that truly harnessed the raw energy and intensity of their live shows. The Drifter’s Dawn was released under ABC Music imprint FourIFour.

Once again, The Tiger & Me are ready to get their show on the road, with a string of live dates around the country supporting the release of ‘Made It To The Harbour’.
