paper tiger irresistible

Leeds-based beat cooks Paper Tiger have released a tantalizing single off their latest album Laptop Suntan entitled “Irresistible” featuring the vocal talents of Sabira Jade.  The track, a downtempo shuffle rife with lo-fi synth work and a powerful slogging bassline, balances the gritty old-school throwback aesthetic with Sabira’s smooth vocal hooks. A great intro into the sonic world of Paper Tiger.

The six-piece outfit, which has performed live with the likes of Jaga Jazzist, Rustie, Gaslamp Killer, Daedelus, and Amon Tobin, are quickly earning support for their full-length and for good reason. Paper Tiger culls influences from  across the world of sound, snipping, chopping, and re-working them all into a space bass hip-hop jazz blend that’s at once familiar and undeniably fresh.

Stream the single and full album here and check out a video of their single with Homeboy Sandman below. If you like what you hear don’t forget to support and purchase the album, and follow them on Facebook to stay up to date.

The band will be performing live on February 28th at the Garage in London alongside Homeboy Sandman and Paul White, so be sure to catch them if you’re in the area.
