Today, almost five long years since the release of their acclaimed debut album Route One or Die, London’s Three Trapped Tigers announce the release of their second full-length, Silent Earthling, dueApril 1st on Superball Music.
“I think the problem for anyone striving to create their own sound is, once you – hopefully – have achieved that, how do you expand that whilst maintaining it?” asks guitarist and keyboard player Matt Calvert of himself on the evolution of Three Trapped Tigers. The answer in this instance is really rather a simple one and it is to be found within the glorious, eclectic and exhilarating Silent Earthling, an album that carries forward the unique idiosyncrasies the group have shaped for themselves, whilst simultaneously expanding into previously unexplored territory.
Calvert wrote the majority of material on this album and the recording process itself was pretty speedy, “Our whole operation is very DIY – other than a few days of intense drum recording in a ‘proper’ studio, we recorded everything else in my flat, where I also mixed the album.” Calvert says, adding that location played an important role in the creation of this album, “We rehearsed and did pre-production stuff at the Deptford Music Complex, just down the road from where Betts and I live, just off Queens Road, Peckham. It’s great to have had a local feel to the making of the album, we were very much entrenched in South East London that summer.”
