Singled Out: Mighty Tiger

Welcome to Singled Out! where we ask artists to tell us the inside story of their latest single. Today Andy Vaughan from Mighty Tiger tells us about "33 1/3" from their brand new album "Western Theater," which hits stories next week. We now turn it over to Andy for the story:

33 1/3 was written with an inherent juxtaposition of a relatively upbeat, bouncy song structure and darker lyrical content, which is actually a common device used throughout Western Theater. 33 1/3 primarily refers to some former roommates of mine, who are amazing people, but with whom I felt trapped. They were a recently-engaged couple who lived very much the prototypical "young married couple" lifestyle, which tended to butt heads with my own at the time. To be quite honest, the happiness of their relationship only caused me discomfort and even depression, as I myself had been engaged to a girl years before that ended quite badly. While I knew the dissolution of that relationship was for the best, my roommates' relationship only served as a reminder of what I should have had.

Now, the roomies and I were very into record shopping at the time. I had been best friends with my guy roommate long before the engagement, but their new lifestyle really pushed us apart in terms of our common interests. However, we always got excited for each other when we'd find a neat new record or hear about some rad record sale. Of all the things I felt like we no longer shared, all that remained spun at 33 RPM, quite literally.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album - right here!
