It’s harder and harder to make your sound and style stand out these days, but Alabama-born songwriter Space Tyger (Kyle Bragwell) is as interesting and fascinating as his alias suggests. His latest offering Velvet is a sonic escape from the usual pop music you hear in today’s streaming world. It’s synth-pop with twists and turns at every opportunity, almost something you could imagine in an 80s drive-through movie.

However, what stands this apart are some modern touches and elements that lift it further, and Bragwell has no problem in finding a melody and groove that fits in keeping with the overall mood and atmosphere he has solely created himself; a true modern day troubadour.

Space Tyger explains the process behind Velvet: “I wrote the instrumental for this on a very rare snow day in Alabama. A lot of people came over to our house and made a whole day of it. Meanwhile, I was upstairs in the studio while everyone was out in the snow.  I also was pretty anti-social when everyone came back to the house. Later me and Austin Motlow worked out some melodies and I wrote the lyrics. Ironically it’s written about waiting on someone to come over. That feeling of someone you can’t get out of your head and anticipate getting to see again.”
