Tiger Kit

Album: Bitter Rivals (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Multi-instrumentalist Derek Miller admitted to NME that he never really got the guitar sound that he was looking for on this song. "It will always drive me crazy," he said. "I will always hear that song and know what it could sound like, which is a problem. It has the closest thing we have to a solo on a Sleigh Bells record, I guess. It kind of rips off Jimmy Page."
  • However, Miller does love vocalist Alexis Krauss' Rhythm Nation reference on the second verse when she sings, "Never trust a tiger that can't be tamed." He told NME: "I think we were both really into Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. We're both huge Janet Jackson fans. I think you killed it, you have a lot of attitude."
