NEW MUSIC PROFILE - ROCK BAND "FIRE TIGER"
Los Angeles rock band Fire Tiger fronted by big voiced Tiffany Alkouri bring back the 80s Glam/Classic Rock. Reminding me initially of Heart, with a little Starship (80s version) the songs evoke memories of that glorious decade, the guitar solos and the anthemic power ballads that we associate with that time.
I first heard the band through the foot stomping title track from their first album "Energy" released in 2014. Scouring YouTube for new bands this video caught my eyes and ears. I was transported back to the 80s as I searched for more songs such as the gorgeous ballad "He Has Changed". The "Energy" video was a taster for the album and got thousands of likes and positive comments. The album contains brilliant tracks that also incorporate some late 70s style arrangements which only adds to the enjoyment.
The band have since released a second album, "Suddenly Heavenly" which contains the fabulous Heart/Berlin style Pop Rock title track and the classic 80s Pop and ironically summery and upbeat "Ice Age". Other favourite tracks of mine from the album include "Love The Way" and "You Changed Me".
It is like the band have just been frozen in the 80s and brought back to ensure the decade lives on in a new generation. A really great band who are in the process of recording their third album hopefully out in 2019. If you are an 80s lover like me this band will indulge your thirst for the days before boybands and DJ music etc.!
