Miniature Tigers play stripped-down, simple pop that sounds like summertime nostalgia, warm, comfortable, and fun. Miniature Tigers aren’t a band to come to when looking for something groundbreaking, but if bubblegum arrangements and from-the-heart songwriting are what float your boat, you’re likely to find some sweet satisfaction with Tell it to the Volcano. Consider these song titles: “Like or Like Like,” “Annie Oakley,” and “Dino Damage.” Add in plenty of opportunities for clap-alongs and throw in some crystallized keyboards and you’ll soon begin to understand the quirky, upbeat world that awaits anyone who wanders into the lair of Miniature Tigers.
