Three Trapped Tigers are a band born out of a common challenge. Bonding over the idea of dragging elements of IDM into the format of a live band, replacing computers with humans, rendering a backing track redundant and adding a humanized dimension to a robotic genre.
This experimental trio from London play like three caged beasts – sheer raw energy and power contained. Forming in 2008 and taking their name from a book by Cuban writer Guillermo Cabrera Infante, they set themselves the challenge of writing, recording and self releasing 3 EPs. May 30th 2011 saw the release of the band’s highly anticipated debut album ‘Route One Or Die’. The band’s output to date has made sure they’re constantly defying genre boundaries, while simultaneously overwhelming the music press.
Three Trapped Tigers have, in their short existence so far, proved there really are no limits to their imagination or ability. Expect a mind melting but beautiful melding of melody, progressive live electro with opportune slashes of visceral guitar. Furiously schizophrenic and complex duelling Nintendo-style synths and textural electronica.
