Sons of Tiger are one of those bands I feel like I just keep missing out on. But if you’re in Korea this weekend, be sure to catch them playing at Zandari Festa. Their fusion of southern blues rock and garage rock reaches into your chest and yanks out feelings of angst and longing. I can’t get enough of them, and I really hope they can make it to the States for a tour sometime soon. We got to chat with the guys before they take on Zandari on Saturday.
We’d love to get an introduction to your band in your own words. Will you tell us who makes up your band, and how you describe your style of music?
Seong-min: What’s up guys, we’re Sons of tiger. We gathered in 2013 and have been playing with our current squad from 2016. Actually, Seong-Hyun and I are brothers so I can’t tell you which one of created the band! In terms of musical style, we usually mix up kinds of music such as blues, garage rock and classic rock.
What does being invited to play at Zandari Festa 2017 mean to you?
Seong-hyun: We really enjoy playing at Zandari Festa. The festival almost feels like we are playing overseas due to all the musicians and delegates who come to Seoul from all over the world for the event.
What is the best part of Zandari Festa for you?
Hyung-wook: Meeting new people from all around the world. I think that’s one of the most attractive points about Zandari. Regardless of where someone is from or what kind of music they play, everyone is friends at Zandari Festa.
Who do you want to see play at Zandari Festa this year?
Seong-min: We’re going to try and check out as many bands as we can over the course of the weekend.
What can people at Zandari Festa expect from your performance?
Seong-min: We always try to break the stage with our performances. So that’s our goal this time around as well. If you come to our showcase, I’m sure you’ll have a fantastic time.
You can catch Sons of Tiger Saturday at 5:00 (17:00-18:00) at Rolling Hall.
Here’s hoping you get to see some fun stage destruction with your experience!
