Premiere: Hear a Dazzling Beat-Driven Cut From Paper Tiger and Steve Spacek
The UK outfit's new single drops later this week.
Titled “The Cycle,” the alluring jazz-tinged single is the first taste of the band’s third album, Rogue Planet, which continues a fascination with space travel outlined on the band’s debut LP, Laptop Suntan, and sophomore effort, Blast Off. Blending the organic and electronic via a mix of live instrumentation, self-sampling, and various beat production techniques, “The Cycle” is an intoxicating bed of sound on top of which the legendary Steve Spacek delivers soulful and emotive vocal lines.
The single officially arrives on November 30 via Wah Wah 45s, and backed up by b-side cut, “[Quick Wash],” and a remix of “The Cycle” by Shy One. You can pre-order the single here, with a full stream also available below.
