Tiger Please

Kerrang! Magazine KKKK :-

Occasionally a record comes along that simply knocks you for six. They Don't Change Under Moonlight contains not a single weak moment.A mighty, vibrant blend of muscularity and delicacy, mixing cinematic, Gaslight Anthem-like storytelling with the gruff, homebrewed rock vintage of Pearl Jam

The Music Fix 9/10 :-

An absolutely storming, ambitious, passionate debut album; knocks established rivals like Pearl Jam out of the park. If there’s any justice or sanity on this planet then his band is going to be huge

Punktastic.com 4/5 :-

There have been so many talented Welsh bands in the last few years and Tiger Please are among the best.

God is in the TV 4/5 :-

A sparkling début from the young Tiger Please, brilliantly melodic and upbeat

Roomthirteen.com 11/13 :-

An impressively mature and innovative debut; If we don’t see bigger things for Tiger Please in 2010, I’ll eat my own Trilby

Secret Cinema

This vibrant four piece have wowed audiences since their inception in late 2008, playing festivals and venues around the UK. They are one of the winners of the Q Magazine Glastonbury Emerging Talent and as a result will be performing at Glastonbury 2010. With varied backgrounds, their music is both moving and hard to define.

The band collectively writes its music and use unusual instruments, commonly replacing a Bass with Fx'd electric violin and using old electronic toys. This unusual approach has led to comparisons with bands as varied as Pink Floyd, Radiohead, TV On The Radio and Mars Volta.

They use experimental film footage giving audiences a unique experience. Secret Cinema have recorded at EMI Studios and worked with producer Daniel Knowles from the Post-Rock band, “Amusement Parks On Fire” to record the first three tracks of their forthcoming album “Through a Cathode Darkly”. The rest of the tracks have now been recorded for this exciting project and the band are looking forward to releasing it.
