PAPER TIGER / I’M A CYBORG (BUT THAT’S OKAY)

Free Download

We at Wah Wah 45s are very excited to be stepping into 2016 with the first offering in almost 18 months from Leeds based alternative hip hop and electronica outfit, Paper Tiger.

During their recent hiatus the band have been busily writing and recording a brand new album, which will be released later this spring, and this forward thinking slice of frenetic space-funk is a good indication of where things are heading – but don’t take our word for it…;

Another Planet

“We really think we’ve defined (and refined) our sound and this new music is funkier, weirder and better than anything we’ve done before. Expect this to “go off” in the club, provided your club is on another planet!” Greg Surmacz (Paper Tiger)

So enjoy this taste of Paper Tiger’s exciting new material. The forthcoming album features a roll call of impressive guests, including Sa-Ra legend Shafiq Husayn; Paul White’s little sis, and recording artist in her own right, Sarah Williams White; Stones Throw’s Pyramid Vritra and 18 year old prodigious Florida rapper Chester Watson. That’s not forgetting Paper Tiger’s inimitable and verbose front man, Raphael Attar, of course. All mastered by the legendary Daddy Kev.
