Comprised of sharp, hooky punk, Empires, the newest LP by the New York City punk band Swanky Tiger, balances pop smarts with guitar-diven aggression.
Following an eventful 2014 highlighted by performances at key New York City venues such as The Studio at Webster Hall, Tammany Hall, and Arlene’s Grocery, the young punk outfit Swanky Tiger is starting off the new year with the release of its newest studio offering, Empires. You can stream the album below.
One line in the tune “Glamorous” sounds a little like foreshadowing for this up-and-coming band: “If it’s fame you want / come and take it now”. By the sound of this track, and indeed the LP as a whole, Swanky Tiger is poising itself to do just that.
