For nearly a decade as a music journalist, I’ve been fortunate enough to witness the evolution of countless bands and artists. Now I’m thrilled to share a few thoughts on “A Tiger Walks The Streets” by the British post-punk band Supercaan. Describing Supercaan’s music to the average passerby is impossible, as it fits under a variety of genres, from post-punk to atmospheric rock and psychedelic music.

The band is set to release their long-awaited follow-up to their eponymous debut album on April 12. Featuring dark, electronic-infused singles, “A Tiger Walks The Streets” is a masterclass in wistful, melancholy indie rock, reminiscent of Broken Social Scene and Baxter Dury.

In a world where most music serves as a mirror to our deepest emotions, Supercaan offers us a sonic journey that beautifully encapsulates feelings of isolation as they deal face-to-face with their biggest anxieties about the world. From the titled, open track to the closer ‘Panic Carefully With Me,’ the album carries an authentic depth that resonates with every listener. It’s so incredible how beautifully arranged the fusion of post-punk, psychedelic rock, shoegaze, and electronica elements are, as Supercaan’s unique style keeps you engaged and emotionally invested.

A Tiger Walks The Streets” opens with a track that sets the tone for the remainder of the album, a melodic journey if you will that takes you by the hand and guides you through small places, each song telling a story all on its own. The emotional impact of “A Tiger Walks The Streets” is profound, as it resonates deeply with listeners, evoking a sense of introspection and empathy. Each song on the album carries its own emotional weight, inviting you to embark on a personal journey of self-reflection and connection to the world around you.

The second track ‘Zoetrope‘ comes with a music video and is a musical canvas that invites us to explore “the double standards of the people in the top echelons of society who get to set the rules but play by different rules”.

Belligerents‘ is… wow, where should I start? It is more than just a song, it is an experience that allows you to dance your heart out. In creating melodies that pull at the heartstrings and resonate on such a profound level, Supercann once again demonstrates its skill at crafting inspirational tracks. In listening to the poignant lyrics, post-rock instrumentation, and often whispered vocals of the album, you will find yourself drawn into a world where authenticity and vulnerability reign.

The deeper you delve into the record, the more you’ll find that every track has its own identity, and frankly, the British outfit has a remarkable ability to weave melancholic stories. Two of the standout tracks on the album are ‘Storms Over Scafell‘ and ‘Ricochet‘. These singles stay with you long after you finish listening to them. The melodies are catchy, the lyrics are poignant and the overall production is top-notch.

Panic Carefully With Me‘ encapsulates the album’s essence, exuding a dreamy vibe that leaves a lasting impression. There’s also a remarkable flow to this album. Aside from Greg’s vocals that ooze with conviction and assertiveness, along with the mind-blowing instrumentation consisting of tight drums, chiming guitars, and subtle yet profound techno effects, the piece evokes a prophetic mood.

A Tiger Walks The Street” is an album that deserves to be heard. This is a testament to the band’s perseverance, their love of music, and their ability to create songs that resonate with listeners.

Realistically what I am saying is that this album has it ALL! It is clear that no detail has been overlooked, and no stone has been left unturned when it comes to the soundscape or production quality of this magnificent and complex post-punk album. Ultimately, what this band has achieved deserves to be recognized, so please be the first to inform everyone about the new talent on the horizon. Do not miss the opportunity to get your hands on this album and become a part of its legacy.
