“Ik Banere” (“A Rooftop”) is Tigerstyle’s latest single from the forthcoming new album titled “Digi-Bhang”. Tigerstyle’s new material showcases the unique direction they are taking, by making use of electronic and synthetic sounds but always fusing with Bhangra, international elements and plenty of BASS!! Their previous release “Kudi” topped all Bhangra charts across the world and even found its place on playlists with no other Bhangra in sight! “Ik Banere” is an uplifting soulful summer anthem in the making. Innocent Bollywood-esque vocals by newcomer Ms Rajni, laid over a kaleidoscope of melody and tablatronic Drum n Bass.
This release has a unique twist. Tigerstyle collaborate with Ink’quisitive and MadTatter to create a music video filmed at Group 101 Studios, which depicts illustrator Amandeep Singh being inspired by the track and unleashing his talent onto canvas. Ink’quisitive produces art which engages in breaking rules. With a name such as 'Inkquisitive' the means of this simply lies in his heavy usage of Indian inks and allowing the Art to pose many questions. By believing imperfection is beauty, Amandeep has been able to establish his work in a very unique, innovative and eye catching way. With strong use of colour and eccentric methodology on spilling ink, it has raised its dramatic awareness.
