Global Indie Group Seven Purple Tigers back with Their Latest Reminiscent Single
It’s not often that an act so elusive can strike at the heart of something so personal but it’s in that balance that you’ll find indie’s most exciting new act – Seven Purple Tigers. The band’s founders Austin Horn (singer/rhythm guitar) and Phil Dyszy (lead guitar/backing vocals) are an unlikely pair. From the US and Germany respectively, the trans-Atlantic duo bonded over their love of music in the vibrant basement bars and clubs of the Old Town of Kraków, Poland. It was there that the pair began crafting what would become Seven Purple Tiger’s signature sound that came to fruition after 5 years of writing together and performing live alongside bandmates Sebastian Heieck (bass) and Felix Schwer (drums); the sound that scores the stellar video for their new single ‘Ignorance is Blitz’.

“I wrote ‘Votives’ after seeing friends that had coincidentally ordered love candles from the same witchy shop. I imagined lighting one and watching my last relationship reignite. I’d regret ending it for too long, but envisioning it play out again, I realized I’d end it again. There was so much relief in that realization. I held that flame in my mind and blew it out. That night, I dreamt that peoples’ minds were little churches filled with votives burning for everyone they’d ever loved. That image really stuck with me and played a large role in bringing the rest of the album together.
I see ‘Votives’ as an appeal to revisit the way we tend our personal mythology. It’s a reminder to take stock of which candles we keep lit, and to extinguish those that no longer serve us.” Miranda Elliott, Old Man of the Woods
