CT's Loudest Low End Lass Lucy Loffredo's Birthday Show!
Carefully crafted rock treatises on our fascinating world. indie/jazz/folk/prog
Olive Tiger is an evolution of sound and texture: a nontraditional rock trio that lushly combines electronics with organic elements of chamber-pop, defying the boundaries of genre in favor of obsessive exploration. Olive Tiger features an unusual collection of instrumentation featuring Olive (cello, guitar, vocals), Jesse Newman (violin, synths, electronics), and John McGrath (drums, percussion).
The group’s sophomore collection, a series of EPs titled Softest Eyes, continues the expansion of their sound palette with Side B. Softest Eyes: Side B features distinctly-crafted tracks ranging from disarmingly sunny to alluringly moody, drawing from a full and complex range of human experiences.
Olive Tiger has shared the stage with a growing roster of notable musicians including Dirty Projectors, Kishi Bashi, Xenia Rubinos, and Kyp Malone (of TV on the Radio), and has garnered growing attention for its work. The band was named Emerging Artist of the Month by The Deli Magazine, and received a nomination for Best in State for the New England Music Awards. Olive Tiger was also honored with an Artist Excellence Fellowship Award from The Connecticut Office of the Arts.
Softest Eyes: Side B is for fans of St. Vincent, Sylvan Esso, Jeff Buckley, Radiohead, and Angel Olsen.
