Not even sure WHERE to begin with My Tiger My Timing. Loved the London five-tet long before Poule d’Or even existed and I’ve been eeeagerly awaiting their debut album forever. No longer. Celeste is here! A collection of ten songs released through their own label Snakes & Ladders, some of the songs sound familiar, they shared some for Poule d’Or compilations and most of them are red hot new and unreleased.
They aren’t being overly experimental or groundbreakingly new in their sound and yet listening to Celeste just makes everything better. It’s an inner happiness they bring out with their light tunes and lovely melodies. But don’t be fooled by their cute outside – keep an ear on the lyrics and you’ll find that there is indeed a tiger lurking behind that little kitty cat. From first to last, it is an overall great mix of happy pop songs.
