Vintage synths conjure thoughts of wild hype bands and pop creativity. Tigercity utilizes such instruments but they defy expectations in songs like “Fake Gold”, which drops in a laid-back tempo despite a sound and lyric that could easily warrant the contrary. But don’t get me wrong, laid back tunes can certainly be worthy; in that, “Fake Gold” is no exception. Seriously, with lyrics like Baby I just want you to know / That I’m wearing fake gold, how can you go wrong?
“Fake Gold” is on Ancient Lover, Tigercity’s new LP, available for purchase at En Prise Entertainment.
