Following in the footsteps of Cohen, and with his deep and sultry Bowie meets Joy Division’s Ian Curtis vocals, Cairo-born Montreal-based singer/songwriter TEROUZ brings his signature retro pop to the scene by curating his original music with his taste for ‘90s nostalgia and ‘70s & ‘80s electro-pop/rock elements.
Along with his co-producer, mix engineer and keyboardist Gabriel Ethier (Garou, Azam Ali, Niyaz) TEROUZ carefully crafts his songs into intimate capsules, where one is intoxicatingly swayed to dive deeper into his cinematic stories.
“Tiger Girl” is a testament to resilient women and the empowering effects they have on others.
A cross between Bowie’s “China Girl” and Springsteen’s “Secret Garden” with a callback to the ‘voyeur’ vibes of The Police’s ‘‘Every Breath You Take,” it depicts a headstrong, feisty lead who leaves her mark on all those who cross her path.
The story is as much about growth through a deeper connection with someone, as it is about the hardness of growing apart and finally letting go. It’s an introspective look at what it is to really know somebody, from the smell of their skin to the way their brain works.
