HA_03 Dream Tiger
7"/DL: UK/US (Hallowed Articles, HA_03)
Emerging from the fog back-lit by bass heavy drums and intricately woven synths, dream tiger takes the stage. Though small in stature, Liz Wolf's channeled emotion fills the room with vocals powerful enough to stop anyone in their tracks; and with good reason. She debuted her solo project onstage and released her first album titled SELF in 2013 while moonlighting as keyboardist for WHY?.
Living and touring coast-to-coast over the past 8 years, Wolf finally settled in Cincinnati, Ohio in 2010 where she recorded and mixed SELF to which HA_03 is the follow-up.
In support of Of Montreal in 2014 dream tiger toured as a 4 piece: Josiah Wolf along with fellow WHY? bandmate Doug McDiarmid and Master Synth God Ofir "MS-20" Klemperer.
