Swedish Filip Sundberg, the drummer from the Umeå-based band Syket, has been busily working on his own solo project under the name Tiger Forest Cat. The first release from his solo album Underdogism is called ‘New York New York’ and is a delightful, laid back indie rock medley.
Even though the song was written in Sweden and shares its name with one of the busiest cities in the US, it does not make an immediate association to any specific geographical place. Instead, it takes your mind on a wander, dreaming about traveling around the world and the simple life of a backpacker.
Underdogism will be released the 3rd of February through No Method Records.
