 Leeds, England, GBR

Described as 'infinitely talented' by NME and 'my new favourite band' by BBC Radio legend Steve Lamacq, the man who first championed Bloc Party & Coldplay, Tigers That Talked live are a frenzied storm of strings, hooks, barbed lyrics & beautiful, glorious noise.


From assorted corners of the UK and Europe, but currently making their beautiful and original music in Leeds after gravitating towards the city’s current artistic and creative renaissance, Tigers That Talked are bassist Owain Kelly, half-Norwegian violinist Glenna Larsen, drummer Chris Verney and guitarist & singer Jamie Williams.

By twisting Glenna's effect-adorned strings and Jamie's haunting vocals around a pulsing rhythm section, the band strike a subtle balance between the anthemic and the experimental. Creating a multi-layered, intensely beautiful music that can be in turns euphoric, rousing and haunting, and coupled with the band’s frenzied live energy, Tigers That Talked create an explosive & dynamic sound that has lead NME to describe them as 'Masters of the slow brood, ebbing and flowing with filmic elegance, swaying between maudlin melodrama and frenzied, multi-layered crescendos”.

Since releasing their debut single Tigers That Talked have received plaudits from all corners of UK press & radio such as NME, The Fly, Q, The Times & This is Fake DIY through to BBC Radio 1, 2 and 6 's Lauren Laverne, Zane Lowe, Dermot O'Leary, Tom Robinson, XFM's Jon Kennedy and were recently hailed as 'my new favourite band' by BBC's influential Steve Lamacq.
