Earlier this month, newcomers Tigercub shared the first half of their forthcoming AA-side single, ‘Destroy’, a stalking piece straight from the QOTSA book of songwriting. ‘You’ is its other half, and takes things on a completely different tangent. Prettily chiming guitar lines open before things lift into something more fleshed out and fuller, but still raw and gently searing. “There’s a hole in my head and it makes me forget about you,” sings Jamie Hall at one point, driving the song’s forlorn undercurrent home. No matter how sieve-like your brain becomes, it’ll be hard to forget Tigercub’s latest.
‘Destroy’/’You’ is released on August 14 via Too Pure Singles Club. Catch Tigercub at the following dates:
