"Tunstall has coined the term “nature techno” to encapsulate the album’s collision of raw, upfront rootsiness and sleek electronic textures -“think Eddie Cochrane meets Leftfield” she suggests. “The songs exist in other worlds for me,” she says, “and I was trying to evoke place through how they sounded.” And so, without sacrificing any of her personal storytelling touch, the sonic landscape shifts from the uninhibited tribal yelp of Uummannaq Song, inspired by her Greenland foray, to the analogue drone-meets-oriental chime and flutter of Lost, by way of Push That Knot Away – “a signature track of the album for me. I see it as taking place in a forest at night and it’s about confronting fear rather than running away”."I have to say, I am not a fan of techno-pop, or , "nature techno", as KT Tunstall refers to it. Because I liked KT Tunstall's previous album, Eye To The Telescope, I decided to give it a try. I did manage to find 2 songs I really like on the new album, "Difficulty" and "(Still A) Weirdo" which has a beautiful acoustic guitar line.
* KT is a Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum, Scottish-born singer-songwriter
* Tiger Suit was released October 5th and her rollicking first single "Fade Like A Shadow" is a Top 20 hit at radio.
* KT will be on tour this Fall (10/31-12/1)
* KT's previous hit songs include - the Grammy-nominated "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree," "Suddenly I See," Other Side of the World" or "Hold On".
