"Tygerlily "Embrace the Wildness""

Tygerlily is a relatively new band having started in 2011 and just starting to scratch the surface with their unique music. This electronic-driven musical duo uses percussion, keyboards and poetic vocals to capture their fans. Their recently distributed 7 track EP “Embrace the Wildness” showcases the duos admiration for the darkwave era but with some Middle Eastern flair mixed in. The poetry of Adrienne Marie combined with the musical talents of Tracy Jupiter are reminiscent of Switchblade Symphony, Lacrimosa and Faith and the Muse.

The opening track on the EP is “The Wheel” is captivating vocally at times as Adrienne takes you on a circle of sound and uses her voice to carry you through the wheel. Although at times the lyrics are a bit too repetitive the dark sounds coming from the keys provides the perfect ride that you just don’t want to leave. “Tonight” the 2nd track is more upbeat and dance heavy. This is a song that seems to be mostly about Lust, the track is well done and seductive at times. It’s almost as if Kate Bush could be singing with Depeche Mode. The 3rd song is “Riptide” combines Switchblade Symphony with the dark melodic edge that created the cult following of Bauhaus. The chorus of “help me, I’m drowning” is the perfect backdrop for the eeriness this song creates. You can almost envision yourself out on a small boat trapped in a fog bank searching for your lost soul mate. The 4th track “Summit” has the potential to be a Goth club hit for years to come. This love song seems to be about assisting that special someone to the next level of their life. You are instantly transplanted back to that time of your life when you got that love and support for someone special. “Lap of She” is a melodic death march that pulls a dark shadow over your consciousness. The usual pulsing keys found in so many darkwave bands are present here but it’s the voices that hypnotize you on this ride. The 6th track “Tail” starts off very Depeche Mode but what makes this song so special is listening to Adrienne’s voice as she channels Kate Bush and at times Peter Murphy perfectly on this one. The final track “Profane” transforms the typical song about change into an amazing story. The lyrics “shred your concepts of this form, burn your judgments, be adorned, by the shine of night” could one day be a testament to lifestyle of these ladies and their fans.
According to the band’s description “The lyrics and music are haunting. Mix a bit of
urban grit with goddess-like epithets, keyboards, electronic composed beats and theater - Tygerlily will lift you out of the mundane...” After listening extensively to this album nothing could be a more true description for Tygerlily. These ladies are definitely something special in the local scene. If you have not seen them perform or have not had the chance to purchase the album yet start off by downloading either “Tonight”, “Riptide” or “Profane” as these tracks really stand out on this album - The Examiner

Enrapturing the listener through hypnotic sound and seductive lyrics, Emerald Frontier invites the audience on a journey. The group, originally a duo called, Tygerlily was formed in June 2011 by Tracy Jupiter and Adrienne Marie.

The vulnerability and power of their sound will lure you into their intimate space and leave you pulsing with passion.
