The NYC-based trio Tiger Tooth was conceived during a 5am slam poetry-interpretive dance session amongst Johnny Siera, Will Broussard and Sofia Szamosi in their East Village apartment. Szamosi and Siera, the front man for the Ninja Tune signed punk-art band The Death Set, had initially met during a tarot reading when they both discovered that they each had a tiger tattoo on their bicep and a gold-crowned tooth. They were married a year later. The honeymoon consisted of a myriad of techno-benders which in turn inspired the duo to pursue a dark, digital sound. Linking up with Will Broussard, the drummer from Siera's punk group, they wrote their first track and Tiger Tooth was born. With Broussard and Siera on analogue and digital machines and Szamosi in charge of visuals, Tiger Tooth grew into a multi-faceted multimedia art project.
The trio has graciously offered up the track that bears its name, "Tiger Tiger Tooth Tooth," as today's XLR8R download. A repetitive and imposing dancefloor vandal, the track grows in size and energy with a solid pace and a fierce demeanour.
