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 Jaga Jazzist, Rustie, Gaslamp Killer, Daedelus, Alice Russell, Amon Tobin and many more).

Irresistible Features

Following on from the release of Laptop Suntan, their much acclaimed full length debut on Wah Wah 45s, Paper Tiger proudly present the second single to be lifted from the album.

Irresistible features the lush vocals of Sabira Jade, and is a low slung, hip hop joint with an immediate hook that’ll get lodged in your brain for months to come, plus those trademark Paper Tiger beats to move your feet. It comes complete with a devastating garage flavoured mix from Debian Blak, as well as clean and, er, not so clean versions of Paper Tiger’s own twist on the original, entitled Resistance, and featuring the witticisms of frontman Raphael Attar.

“Sparkling live future bass music. Paper Tiger manage to put together all that’s best about current electronic music together in one package. Intricate but punchy, weird but very wonderful.”
Joe Muggs, Mixmag
