When Good Tiger, consisting of vocalist Elliot Coleman, guitarists Derya “Dez” Nagle and Joaquin Ardiles, drummer Alex Rudinger and bassist Morgan Sinclair, debuted in 2015 with their LP, A Head Full of Moonlight, the boys ascended the ranks of the alternative rock world. Their consistent and dynamic songwriting made it abundantly clear that they had risen from the ashes of their past projects into an accomplished, unique band that was the basis of their successes.
Now, the quintet continues their ascension with the sophomore album, We Will All Be Gone. While Good Tiger does not need to boost their stock any further, the band decided to build on their debut.
“I think that what a musician wants to do musically is always pretty fluid and can change from day to day,” stated guitarist Derya “Dez” Nagle. “Going into our second record, we wanted to focus more on songwriting rather than specifically on any kind of wow factor, instrumentally or production-wise. We wanted the songs to speak, and everything we did was serving that purpose.”
And they did exactly that. Their lead single, “Grip Shoes”, is a bit of a mashup of sounds that draws its stylistic influences from post-grunge blended with twist of pop, while “Salt of the Earth” is a traditional rock enthusiast’s dream filled with heavy, sharp guitar riffs and Coleman’s howling vocals. Each track on We Will All Be Gone shows a wonderful amount of variation, but still maintains a cohesiveness throughout. This holistic style that Good Tiger has adopted allows each of the band member’s voices to be heard and makes for a wonderful rock album.
