Tiger Really

Starting out as a stupid pun on the name of a flower, Tiger Really has since become something like a life journal for Vancouver songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Lian Shao. Through confessional lyricism and symbolic wordplay, Lian documents the various events and people in his life with the aim of remembering how it feels to change, fail, grow apart, and love.

In a way, Tiger Really is a time capsule of emotions, expressed with a mix of influences from jazz, emo, punk and indie-rock. This strange combination of genres creates a melancholic yet energetic sound that gives listeners a peek into a moment of time, and delivers a very specific snapshot of feelings, frozen in song.

Tiger Really is set to release their debut full length album "Swan Sting" in 2024 with Counter Intuitive records.
