"Giddy garage melodics with Sleater-Kinney twist." -Entertainment Weekly
"A touch of Bruce Springsteen, a touch of Nashville, and plenty of gritty ’90s pop punk imparting the feel of an instant classic."
"radical politics, power-pop melodies, traditional Jewish music, and punk vitriol."
"Bold brassy lonelyheart rock" -The Village Voice
Olive Tiger is the result of collaboration between Olive Kiley (cello/guitar/vocals), Jesse Newman (violin), and Dane Scozzari (drums). Rooted in the folk tradition, Olive Tiger has grown from those origins to incorporate influences from jazz, hip-hop, rock, classical, and electronic music. The result is somewhere between St. Vincent, Andrew Bird, Joanna Newsom, Rasputina, and tUnE-yArDs. Olive Tiger, at its start, began as a much larger group led by Olive. Wanting to incorporate her cello and her loop pedal, the music took on a new shape and sound, requiring the detailed attention of a smaller group. Now a trio with frequent guests, Olive Tiger is currently working on their debut album, due fall 2015.
