Indie-pop duo Tigers Are Bad For Horses get a little emo in their new track called "I.V. (Poisoned)." Frontwoman Mellen (Mary-Ellen) Funke's sultry, folk vocals blend seamlessley with the progressive melody produced by percussionist Lyell Roeder. Singing "sometimes I think the venom in my veins will never leave," TABFH casts a darker cloud over the running theme from their last track "Recovery" --being let down by someone you care about. Roeder says the track is much heavier not only in tone, but in percussion. "We just really wanted to change the balance in this [track]."
The two plan to drop a 5-track EP late February and say we can expect each of their songs to stand out on their own. "They are actually pretty different from each other... even with the next ones, you'll see even different influences" comments Funke. TABFH have already played most of their EP live. They find performing their music before it's finished "informs they way [they] write." If you can't wait until the expected drop of their EP late February, catch TABFH with Eureka Birds at the Treehouse Lounge February 26th and listen to "I.V.(Poisoned)" below. --Sade A. Spence
