In advance of their debut full length album, Isle of Dogs (April 9, 2012), east London indie poppers Tigercats are releasing a free MP3 download of “Full Moon Reggae Party”.
“Full Moon Reggae Party” was written in one day after an enforced absence from the studio and recorded just a couple of days later. It’s about going on the run (“I heard you stole a van, we’ve got some fake Gaugin’s, let’s go and get the cash, dance to Two Sevens Clash”) but it’s also the most direct love song they’ve ever done.
“We love to play it because it’s fast and it’s about breaking the law.”
The track comes complete with a blistering video in the form of an illustrated psychedelic journey through the jungle that leaves you feeling like you’ve just been on a two minute holiday in the tropics. The whole experience poses more questions than it answers and sums up the frenetic appeal of Full Moon Reggae Party.
