Trap Tiger came together in the winter months of early 2009. Driven by markedly diverse influences, a love for the live spectacle and an anything goes writing policy, the band spent the better part of the winter developing a body of original songs. By combining angular call and answer guitar work, thick, pulsing bass, delicate pianos and synths and bone rattling drums Trap Tiger has crafted a sound to call their own. Melodic group vocals and often-shifting time signatures give their music an indie feel but there is much more to their music that makes Trap Tiger difficult to categorize.
Trap Tiger consists of Ryan Dugal (drums), Andre Furlong (bass), Matthew Paterson (vocals and guitar), Ceilidh Shipley (keys), and Kevin Suess (guitar). All members are multi instrumentalists in their own right and all contribute to live and studio vocals, giving the music a very infectious energy.
Since their beginnings, Trap Tiger has hit the scene with their EP "Lush Jungles" in 2009 and the debut full length "Twisted Shapes" in 2010. The band has shared audiences with USS, Arkells, Down With Webster, Inward Eye, The Junction, Michou, and Birds of Wales to name a few. Read more on Last.fm.
