Tiger Shadow - A tastey morsel before the Feast

"What we're they thinking? They kept playing while the ship was sinking."

The imagery of the Titanic is used here as an allegory for the downfall of western civilization. If you skip a minute into the video, you find your self immersed in one of the most riveting and enlightening flows ever put to tape. MC Komla of the Dubstep crew Tiger Shadow provides a powerful take on societal norms as the band backs him up with solid beats, bass and dirty synths.

Tiger Shadow hails from Leeds and proudly showcases their trip hop roots on their debut album "Adventures of the Tiger Shadow". These guys have all ready stormed the BBC with their first release and are primed to make some serious things happen with this unquestionably great offering. Heads up!
