Tigercub Release New Single 'Funeral'
Tigercub have shared a fourth taster from the record - dramatically different from the heavier songs that came before, "Funeral" is an intensely personal song ruminating on the loss of friends and family propelled instead by intimate acoustic guitars and a swooping string accompaniment.
Jamie had the following to say about the themes behind their latest song:
"Funeral is a song I wrote to cope with death, firstly to directly cope with my grandmothers passing, but also as an emotional outpouring to the shocking amount of friends I have lost to suicide over the years. I find songwriting incredibly cathartic and therapeutic, it helps me process my emotions and figure out what lies at the core of me. I find it difficult to properly express myself in day to day life, I was always taught as a male that to portray anything other than stoicism was a sign of weakness and that it should be overridden with jovial humour and general toxic bullshit. Nowadays we are all learning how wrong this affectation is, and rightly so."
