Papier Tigre are French noiseniks who have a Gallic twist on the brilliant Steve Albini school of sound. They take the stripped dynamic and make something new out of it.
The three piece of drums, 2 guitars, percussion, vocals take the energy of punk and collide it with the precision and disconnect of Math Rock and have honed this down to perfection.
They are proof of a fascinating European underground and yet another french band who are twisting rock into new shapes in the post music industry meltdown that is seeing new boundaries of where the interesting stuff is.
the band are over in the Uk touring in May- can’t wait to see the live.
