"Noise Around Me" is a bit more synthpop and darker than the debut "Lost In You." Atmospheric yet dancey, recalling a sexually charged Saint Etienne, Ladytron, or a slinkier Dot Allison, Tiger Baby captures the dancier essence of synthpop on their new album. They mix the sexiness of underground European dance clubs adding a universal mainstream appeal.Tiger Baby was formed by Benjamin Teglbjærg and Nikolaj Gregersen in Copenhagen in 1999 after their split up with the indie pop band 'Polytone'. A note on a blackboard at the University of Copenhagen brought the two together with Pernille Pang, who since then has made up the third part of the band as the lead singer and lyric composer.In 2004 the debut album "Lost In You" was released. During the summer 2004 Tiger Baby's first single 'Chinese Fairytale' rotated steadily on Danish radio and was among other things used as a jingle on Danish National TV. In October 2004 the band took part in the yearly reoccurring music festival CMJ in New York, and the second single 'Sweetheart' became "Ugens Uundgåelige" - the most played song of the week on Danish National Radio P3. In December the legendary Danish label Cloudland Records released Tiger Baby's Christmas song 'This Christmas'. During December the song rotated on the Danish National Radio and was used in a campaign from the Danish cancer organisation 'Kræftens Bekæmpelse' on Danish TV.In 2005 the song 'Chinese Fairytale' appeared on the soundtrack of the MTV-nominated, Indonesian film 'Catatan Akhir Sekolah'.In 2006 the second Tiger Baby album 'Noise Around Me' was released on May 23 in the USA on Souvenir Records. Tiger Baby also contributed a cover version of 'Strangelove' to the Danish Depeche Mode tribute-album 'DMDK', which was released February 27th in Denmark by Bonnier Amigo. In March Tiger Baby's new single 'At Least I'm Honest' was introduced on Danish National Radio's P3, and 'Lost in You' was released in Indonesia by Fast Forward Records.
