Brooklyn-based duo Tiger + Man, comprised of Austin raised singer/songwriter Tiger Darrow and South African composer Andrew Orkin, recently shared a surprising video for the sign-off track of their debut EP. “Paper Cranes” was directed by Mike Donaghey of Scratch Empire and premiered in Central Trak, just after the Orlando’s tragedy.
As Tiger + Man explain it, “Paper Cranes” is representative of feeling suffocated and oppressed by the views/beliefs/opinions of others. A message that is totally highlighted by a simple but beautiful video.
The video is simple but quite evocative. Amazing colors that could represent diversity, a body made of paper for the fragility. As written in the press release, it was “all shot in one take due to Darrow’s harrowing experience during the shoot, in which she can be seen suffering an actual panic attack on screen. The video was shot using liquid latex for the dripping colours as well as the base, which Tiger wore for 10 hours.”
