Miniature Tigers

A Quirky Baroque and Synth-Pop Outfit

Brooklyn-based Miniature Tigers are a quirky baroque and synth-pop outfit centered on singer/songwriter Charlie Brand. Formed in Brand’s hometown of Phoenix, Arizona in 2006, the group initially began as a solo bedroom recording project. The resulting material paired his acoustic guitar with a wide range of pop influences — the Cars’ strut, Weezer’s snark, Phil Spector’s polish — and Miniature Tigers soon inked a deal with Modern Art Records, a label co-founded by fellow Phoenix-based group Chronic Future. With drummer Rick Schaier, guitarist Algernon Quashie, and bassist Alex Gerber also on board, Miniature Tigers released the breezy Tell It to the Volcano in September 2008. In 2012, Miniature Tigers showcased even more stylistic growth, weaving in ’80s new wave influences on the synthy, dance-oriented Mia Pharaoh. Two years later, they delivered the similarly disco and synth pop-infused Cruel Runnings, featuring production from Chris Zane (Walkmen, Passion Pit). After a brief hiatus, they returned in 2017 with I Dreamt I Was a Cowboy, a loosely structured concept album about being in love.

    Great music, energetic crowd

    I had never heard of this band, but apparently everyone else at the show had, and knew all of their music. Their music was fantastic, and the singer jumped down into the crowd for a couple of songs, and sang from the within the crowd.
