Plenty of indie-rock bands make tongue-in-cheek references to Prince, but the only ones worth listening to are the ones that can actually back it up. Tigercity is one of those bands, and there’s an equally contagious concoction of Hall and Oates, the Cars and Roxy Music permeating the band’s sexy, disco-ball rock. Falsetto vocals and ’80s synths reign supreme, but it’s the band’s ability to produce smooth pop hits that really sets it apart from the panty-wetting pack. The Brooklyn, New York, outfit recently broke from a tour with Mobius Band for a series of dates with electronic-funk maestro San Serac.
