New Tigercity Video – “Fake Gold” (Stereogum Premiere)

When we posted “Fake Gold” from the Brooklyn Bee Gees/Hall & Oates-inflected lite-rock quartet Tigercity, I said it felt like the song was “about trying to stay fab in this shitty economy.” Judging from the jets, jewelry, champagne, and ladies in this Michael Simses-directed video, the guys aren’t having a problem maintaining the sheen — especially bearded vocalist/keyboardist Bill Gillim — even if it is faux. The song comes from the group’s first full-length Ancient Lover, which comes out next week. And, speaking of shiny things, they head on tour with Neon Indian soon. For now, though, let’s see where conspicuous consumption gets you.

For the weekend:
