Tiga – Plush

3 December 2012

The Canadian tiger hits again, although this time he doesn’t even need to move from his chair. “Plush” is the latest single to come out of his mix CD Non Stop, released last month on Different Rec.

Plush, that shameless anthem “inspired by 80s dance TV shows like Pelvic Gold and The Bandana Patrol” was produced with Matthew Dear in what apparently started as a freeform jam session and ended up as one of Tigas’ most sensual vocal performances to date.

Released in exactly 2 weeks, the single will include a couple of remixes by almighty Stuart Price (aka Jacques Lu Cont) and German duo Ame (Kristian Beyer & Frank Widermann), and those will certainly boost (even more?) the already incredible tune.

It’s an unhinged vulnerability combined with theatricality that makes a performance by Soap & Skin equal parts immersing and supremely uncomfortable. For all its compositional density –spread across an instrumental ensemble, grand piano and laptop –it’s the brooding figure and robust voice of 23-year-old performer Anja Palschg that shakes the Southbank Centre’s Royal Albert Festival Hall to its core.
