Biography

It is January 2008, and Easy Tiger burst onto the scene with the enthusiasm of a couple of kids in love. Rampant with energy, they divulge the detailed thrills and spills of a middle class life. Fast forward to 2009, and the band have added afew metres to their 3x3 metre practice room, and the boys are penning their first studio album. Well, it wouldn’t be rock and roll without the gritty get togethers above an old Caltex garage now, would it?

Easy Tiger offer up songs with a soul. Listen to ‘Saturday’, and you’re saturated in endorphins that brush along the goosebumps on your skin. This is feel good music, often with a reminiscent twist, a tickle of the past, a hint to the future. Strands of crafty lyrics wrap you around their finger with a confident intensity that is often serious, sometimes satirical, always layered. But there is no laddish, pat-on-the-back bravado here. The lyrics are real, gritty, honest - a window left open for the voyeur.

These are lyrics worthy of a smile.

In ‘Time Is Right’ and ‘Lost Cause Movement,’ guitar driven melodies are gripped by lyrics that wind their way around a catchy chorus. Easy Tiger is a contrast of colour. Their live set will show off a friendly atmosphere where African beats - hands on hip - lean casually against pillars of Jazz, and where pop - with a glimmer in her eye - bats a glittered eyelid and mingles freely with the dirty pretty things of rock.

Vacation

Written By: Riccardo Gualtieri - Easy Tiger

VACATION

I need a vacation
catch me at the station
I need a vacation
need to get the hell outta here

and if I'm gonna see this through
I'm gonna need vacation

I think I need to vacate
I think I need to vacate, oh oh yeah

the candle burns at both ends
my skin has taken a beating
my gear-box don't shift so good
my body don't feel like it should

and if I'm gonna see this through
I'm gonna need vacation
I need some reflection

I think I need to vacate
I think I need to vacate, oh oh yeah

Now that I've come back
life is good, everything's going to plan

But I know it won't be long before
you catch me at the station, my foot in the door

and now that I've seen this through
I'm glad I had vacation
I needed some reflection

I think I need to vacate
I think I need to vacate, oh yeah

I've got to get away
I think about it everyday
I keep praying for the day
that I'm able to vacate

I've gotta get away...
I've gotta get away...
I've gotta get away...

I need a vacation
I need a vacation
I need a vacation

Love Stung Child

Written By: Riccardo Gualtieri - Easy Tiger

So lately you feel a little distressed
your heart is all for her, she don't know you exist
your hands are trembling, you find it hard to swallow
all this love inside is making you feel hollow

Love stung child it only takes a minute
you'll be all right, only if you're in it
love stung child, only takes a second to love...

I ask souls every other day, do they remember the day they gave the're heart away
They say it's scary, some say a miracle, the day you find
the one that you've been searching for

Love stung child it only takes a minute
you'll be all right, only if you're in it
love stung child, only takes a second to love... oh child

but if you're love stung child, only takes a minute
you'll be alright, only if you're in it
love stung child, only takes a second to love...

Love stung child did anyone ever tell you? you'll be alright
love stung child did anyone ever tell you? you'll be just fine..
you're just a love stung child
love stung child
you're just a love stung child
love stung child
you're just a love, a love stung child...

Love stung child, only take a minute
you'll be all right, only if you're in it
love stung child, only takes a second to love...

But if you're love stung child, only take a minute
you'll be all right, only if you're in it
love stung child, only takes a second to love...

You're just a
you're just a
You're just a
you're just a
you're just a love stung child...

No matter what they say
don't let them bother you
no matter where you go
they will be, watching you...

Don't lower your eyes, for anyone...

'Cos even when you sleep
they got something up their sleeve
when you go to work
when you go to the beach

Don't lower you're eyes, for anyone... oh no...

So be aware and don't let them bother you...
be aware and try to stay, cool...
never let them take your name and wear it out
just be cool...

yeah, baby, just be cool..
