Sydney alt pop foursome Tigertown have been riding a steady hype wave all year on the strength of their fire-starter debut EP Lonely Cities, as well as follow-up cut "Papernote," off a forthcoming second set of the same name, arriving next month via Neon Gold/Atlantic. Comprised of husband-and-wife duo Chris and Charlie Collins on lead guitar and vocals, the family band is rounded out by siblings Elodie and Alexi Collins on bass and keys respectively.
Already boasting a dedicated following and Triple J support in their native Australia, this year found them taking their unique blend of sunny indie pop to the international stage, touring the world with the likes of Troye Sivan, St. Lucia and MS MR.
Today, ahead of their sold out European tour supporting Panic! At The Disco, the Aussie act reveal the scintillating second single from the new set, "Take Me Away," produced by Austria's Filous, and premiering exclusively via Billboard.
"Filous makes such beautiful music, we were really excited to work with him," Tigertown tells Billboard of the genesis of the collaboration. "He had sent a couple of ideas to us, and it was at Neon Gold's writing week in Nicaragua that this song came together. We can definitely hear the influence of the amazing Central American coast in there when we listen back." Adds Filous, "As I am a huge fan of Tigertown's unique music, I was really excited when they first asked me if I wanted to collaborate with them. I am very excited how this song came out and I am very happy to be a part of this!"
Keep a look out for Tigertown's new Papernote EP, dropping next month, and catch them on tour dates through November.
