“Catfish Motel” a new single by the band P.M. Tiger is an indie rock song that talks about the initial sparks of a relationship that perhaps dies out overtime or shift in tides
P.M. Tiger is a group of long-haired, moustachioed men from Tampa, Florida whose genre-defying synths and raw rock guitars are seriously snazzy and nostalgically retro. P.M. Tiger, a band founded in 2018 by songwriter and frontman Jordan Rosenberg, has been touring extensively across the United States, working with stroke producer Gordon Raphael, and accumulating significant streams while living in a van and supporting Plain White Ts. As much as anything Julian Casablancas has ever done, Earth, Wind, and Fire are the source of the band’s contagious energy. Their synth-driven indie rock sounds like a hurricane blowing through a loose collaboration between MGMT, Arctic Monkeys, and Vampire Weekend. It blends the 12 notes of the scale in a pleasingly sympathetic way for the human ear. The group’s objective is to give you a virtual rhythm that will help you cope with the pain that comes with being human.
P.M. Tiger’s new single “Catfish Motel,” which was released on November 18, 2022, is about things that appear to be exceptional but aren’t always. The song really hits the heartstrings and makes you reflect on your current relationships.
“Catfish Motel” is their second single of the year, and if you liked their previous work, you’ll love them even more after hearing this one. These seasoned musicians have what it takes to soothe even the most jaded indie music fans, and if “Catfish Motel” doesn’t convince you that these guys are good, I don’t know what will. “Catfish Motel” contains only the best qualities of contemporary indie music, making it suitable for anyone who enjoys the genre. You will, however, come across some new wave, soul, funk, power pop, and possibly some other genres along the way. As a result, “Catfish Motel” is one of those tracks that is full of surprises, and the best part is that you will enjoy it.
After hearing the first fifteen seconds of “Catfish Motel,” my initial thought was, “surely, it’s a joyful indie rock song.” But “Catfish Motel” actually deals with very serious issues in its lyrics and songwriting, so don’t be fooled by the bouncy melodies and pop-punk guitars.
First and foremost, the “Catfish Motel” sound will blow your mind. Whoever engineered, produced, and mastered this song did an outstanding job. Everything these guys put into their songs is audible. P.M. Tiger, of course, sounds like a pro. There’s no way you won’t enjoy the high-pitched, semi-distorted chord progressions, profoundly detailed warm-sounding basslines, and enormously dynamic rhythmic sequences adorned with constant splashing over the cymbals, various accentuations, fills, and other percussive acrobatics. The lead vocalist’s calm, confident, high-pitched voice complements the orchestrations perfectly, while the back vocals elevate everything to a whole new level. From start to finish, P.M. Tiger sounds fresh and unique, and you won’t find another band that sounds this good as they do.
“Catfish Motel” is about a particular type of relationship. Have you ever been with someone who you don’t think is there for you… They’re not available when you need them… And they don’t pick up when you call? Maybe they’re no longer interested, or maybe they’re just too busy, but whatever the reason, you still don’t feel like you’re getting through to each other like you used to. The song is basically about an initial spark that died out or perhaps a shifting of the tides of love.
P.M.Tiger‘s work on this professional, commercial, and catchy song that relies on its beauty in simplicity really impressed me. So If you can connect the dots between Portugal, Arctic Monkeys, The Strokes, Grizzly Bear, Tom Scholz of Boston, Vampire Weekend, Cage the Elephant, and Earth, Wind, and Fire. You might enjoy hearing P.M. Tiger roar, The Man, MGMT, Inner Wave, and Foster the People.
