Comprised of Ben Walsh and Brianna Collins, TIGERS JAW has gripped listeners and press across the globe with their candid compositions and alluring harmonies. spin (stylized all lowercase) sees Walsh and Collins trading off lead vocals which glow with sincerity on this collection of incredibly understated indie-pop classics. Tracks such as “Guardian,” “June,” and “Escape Plan” shine on spin, which follows TIGERS JAW’s 2014 critically adored LP, Charmer. “…The sound of a band bravely moving forward,” declared Pitchfork while Stereogum applauded Walsh and Collins’, “…soul-baring lyrical honesty,” adding, “TIGERS JAW are a revelation…” Profoundly personal and vibrantly textured, spin exhibits Walsh and Collins’ remarkable ability to capture the sentiments and complexities of a moment through melody and introspection.
