Biography

The New Tigers is a fuzzy pop group from Finland. The band was founded in 2006 in order to play noisy yet melodic freewheeling pop music. Some people have described the band's sound similar to Yo La Tengo, Jonathan Richman and Teenage Fanclub, yet in the same sentence underlined the band's quirky originality.

The New Tigers have released two albums both of which have received excellent reviews, and have played live in the UK, Spain, Belgium and Scandinavia, among others. The band has gained a reputation of a fun, adventurous and slightly chaotic live act.

The New Tigers consist of vocalist/guitarists Appu Jasu and Valtteri Virtanen, bass player Janne Kauppinen and drummer Ville Hopponen. The band is located in the west coast seaside town of Turku.

PRESS:

Soundi-Magazine (FI) "The New Tigers has grown into a recognizably personal indie band, and that, as we know, is rare."
- Mikko Meriläinen link

The Arts Desk (UK) "Turku's The New Tigers win with a late-Eighties indie-influenced twinkly guitar pop. Equal parts My Bloody Valentine, Galaxie 500, The Pastels and Sarah Records, The New Tigers rewind the calendar with gusto and charm."
- Kieron Tyler link

Helsingin Sanomat -newspaper (FI) "Gorgeous, dreamy guitar psychedelia."
- Otto Talvio link

7BitArcade.com (UK) "The New Tigers are growing out of their home country, and growing on a whole lot of new listeners as they extend their reach across Scandinavia and into the UK." link
