With equal measures of folk, rock ‘n’ roll, country and pop Mark And The Tiger’s debut EP ‘Little Adventures’ is a journey.
Hailing from Maine before settling in Los Angeles, singer-songwriter Mark Haberland and his spiritual partner in crime Jeffrey Lion (the tiger) have compiled a sound all of their own.
‘Little Adventures‘ is the latest EP from Mark And The Tiger and it rolls into your life with ease. As an overall artist he gives us all the Hozier vibes.
If you took a big American stew pot and threw in equal measures of rock, country, folk and pop with sprinkles of strong writing and lashings of velvet smooth voice, this is what would pour out at the end.
The awesome thing about the eight-track EP is the LA-based artist has managed to blend all those styles, yet still come up with a unified sounding record.
There are slower tunes like ‘Armendine’ and ‘Hand To Hold’ which showcase all aspects of Haberland’s abilities, focussing on bouncing melodies and iron-clad songwriting. Whereas other tunes like ‘I Won’t Give Up’ and ‘Don’t Play Games’ are maybe more tune-led. Just allowing you the chance to sink into the music.
As a whole piece of work, though, ‘Little Adventures’ is purely enjoyable. There’s toe-tappers, infectious hooks, slower tunes and the odd meaty riff to get your teeth into.
There’s no denying there’s talent on show here.
‘Little Adventures‘ is available to stream and download now.
