To anticipate: Dreampop is en vogue, but Dreampop is definitely not for everyone. Stuart Murdoch from Belle & Sebastian is a musician who has driven this kind of music to an unbelievable perfection by which all bands who want to play Dreampop have to be measured. And that's how the New Tigers unfortunately fail. But this does not mean that her carefully arranged, dreamy music, which always sounds like a somnambulistic veil, is bad. On the contrary, the songs of the New Tigers partly have their own charm, which becomes even bigger the less reverberation there is on the vocal part, which on some tracks unfortunately comes across as wrapped in cotton wool. But it's music for dreaming and relaxing. Well done, but not excellently staged. Which with Dreampop quickly leads to the whole thing becoming boring all too quickly.
