Udays Tiger – Sinners (EP 2011)

One could be forgiven for assuming there are music enhancing steroids in the Brisbane water supply, as the quality of talent coming out of that city is truly staggering. The latest on the list of ex-pats is the now Melbourne based duo Udays Tiger who are set to dirty up the local scene with their blistering EP Sinners.

Udays Tiger play with a fierce intensity that simultaneously recalls the unbridled passion of Death From Above 1979 with the reckless swagger of DZ Deathrays. Opening track “Border” is a rollicking, sweaty haze of guitar and thunderous drums that perfectly captures the restless angst of youth.

“Machine” is dangerously dark and intoxicates with it’s brooding rhythms and fiery vocal outbursts. “Refuge” was made to be violently thrashed around to on the dance floor with it’s killer hook and raw energy. Closing tune “MFOT” is sixty-four seconds of schizophrenic guitar that leaves the listener begging for more of the hedonistic sounds which Udays Tiger create.

Sinners is an accomplished debut that shows an abundance of promise from a young band on the rise. Udays Tiger make music that is honest, thrilling and fun. Jump on board now before this duo explode across the blogosphere.
