‘Make It Through’, the third single to be lifted from Paper Tiger’s debut album, ‘Laptop Suntan’, sees the Leeds-based crew on blistering, foot-friendly form. Verbose and witty frontman Raphael Attar delivers a positive and life-affirming message balanced by the band’s somewhat sinister trademark keys and hefty doomful bass wobbles. And to guarantee dance floor destruction they were lucky enough to receive a remix of some weight from Manchester’s producer of the moment, Werkha (Tru Thoughts), who virtually re-built the track with typically jazz-flavoured but seriously sonorous beats as only he can.
Since their humble beginnings in a Wolverhampton suburban bedroom, Leeds-based hip hop, space jazz and bass-loving outfit Paper Tiger have carved their own niche in the electronic music scene, both as a heavyweight production outfit and as a damned fine live band (sharing stages with the likes of Homeboy Sandman, Jaga Jazzist, Rustie, Gaslamp Killer, Daedelus, Alice Russell, Amon Tobin and many more).
