Before Tigers
Brussels, BE

There’s an unmistakably cinematic feel to the chugging grooves, screeching edits and loopy melodic narratives to the debut release from Brussels’ Before Tigers (aka Laurent Delforge). 

A bassist for multiple rock and jazz projects over the years (including psych noise band South of No North), Delforge also performs off-the-beaten-path installations with visual artist Romain Tardy (recently in Mexico, China and Switzerland), composes contemporary electroacoustic compositions and scores for choreographed pieces under his government name and, as Squeaky Lobster, has released three acclaimed EPs of immersive samples, twisted melodies and skittering beats on Belgian label Vlek.

Delforge’s Before Tigers project is driven by collaboration, both with other artists and in a sense with himself, a ‘conversation’ between his past experiences feeding off his own multidisciplinary, far-reaching output.
