Dr. Stuart have released their new single ‘Paper Tiger’. Having kicked off their career with ‘Take It or Leave’ earlier this year, the trio return with a track fuelled by the fierce competition between bands, and the comments they’ve received from less…civil participants. It’s a dog eat dog world out there, and with the amount of music available it’s tough to stand out from the crowd. That said, there’s no need to be a dick and put others down. Dr. Stuart channel this energy for the better though, as this new single is certainly memorable.
Packed with all sorts of distorted noise and fuzzy guitars, ‘Paper Tiger’ is a track that aims to punch you in the face immediately. Its bassline creeps through the instrumental, stalking through the hazy atmosphere and the melodic guitars, working often with the vocals to bring an unnerving groove into your skull. The guitars also let loose with a dose of fast-paced chaos, violently colliding against the drums to bring some full-blown noise to the forefront. It sounds great, and certainly makes a strong first impression on me. It is a dog eat dog world there, but I think Dr. Stuart is the hound that rules the night tonight.
