OLIVE TIGER is driven by the obsessive need to bring imagined sounds to life, creating experiences of beauty and profundity in the process. Olive’s haunting vocals are backed by seductive rhythms with an electronic tinge. The result lands somewhere between My Brightest Diamond, tUnE-yArDs, St. Vincent, and Andrew Bird. The group, which once consisted of up to 7 people, is now made up of Olive (vocals/guitar/cello/looper), Jesse Newman (violin) and Dane Scozzari (drums). The New Haven Independent says the “obsessive vocal layerings and lilting but muscled voice recall Florence Welch, Fiona Apple, Andrew Bird and Iron & Wine.”
Those who’ve had a chance to see the group live notice the “culminations of strings” and “fierce solos” which Neat Beet describes as a “definite attention-grabber.”
