Former Klaxons flatmates Pull Tiger Tail continue the meteorological-mindedness of â€˜Letâ€™s Lightningâ€™ with the equally atmospheric (if somewhat more dour) â€˜Hurricanesâ€™, a blustery tale about leaving town from the trio of Stratford-Upon-Avon-to-London Ã©migrÃ©s. â€˜Hurricanesâ€™ sounds every bit as grand and windswept as its title suggests, nearing the eye and ear of the storm around minute two with near-revelatory snyths battering against Marcus Ardereâ€™s fragile falsetto to awesome effect. The track should inspire a whole slew of storm-chasersâ€” this shit would destroy live.
