Eight Bit Tiger Chicago, Illinois

Eight Bit Tiger is an electronic dance duo from Chicago composed of the Widman brothers, Erik and Kent. The music is influenced by 70s funk and 80s synth-pop, taking notes from artists like Michael Jackson and mixing in the dance element of bands like Daft Punk. There is also the distinct vintage pop vibe of acts like Prince, New Order, and Blondie that harkens to a different sonic era. ... more

Track Name: Bad Advice
Jumping in the elevator makes it go faster.
Track Name: The Night
Everybody is in my face
Everybody is way too slow
Everybody is feeling great
Everybody can feel the flow
Everybody is in my face
Everybody is way too slow
Everybody is in my space
Everybody just let me go

Everybody is in my face
Everybody will take it slow
Everybody is in my face
Everybody just let me go

Just let me go

Everybody is in my face
Everybody is way too slow
Everybody can change their place
Everybody can take control
Everybody is in my space
Everybody is way too slow
Everybody is in my face
Everybody just let me go

Just let me go
Track Name: Cameo
Cameo
Look sharp be reckless
It is so typical
Cameo
Follow your instinct
Just don't forget it's all or nothing

Say what you say
oh it's now or never
The damage is done
forget the tries
I know this will just take time
for me to say...

Cameo
Shake something loose, you never loose, let me down
it is controversial
Cameo
Solo, so long, so dated
Just don't forget it's all or nothing
Track Name: Numbers
I think it's oh so typical
Your love is so symmetrical
I think I thought, I thought it through
Conquer conquest take over you
Overpower mind and body every winter
Look into an empty bottle for adventure
I think it's oh so typical
Your love is oh so typical

They say you've got all my numbers
I read them back and I wonder
Why you left from my apartment
And left my heart in the darkness
They say you've got all my numbers
Watch the playback to discover
Memories trapped in compartments
Words paraphrased in the artwork

Time, if all we had was time
We would me a little slower now
Baby move a little slower now
You want more more more
More from me now
Track Name: These Streets
Seven ways to break apart from me
A paper bag is not good enough for this breath
Shore to shore we're the safest bet, aren't we?
What's the point of growing up when we can't?

These streets don't speak to you and me
I'm burning out on weekend scenes
These streets don't speak to you and me
Burning out on weekends...

Little words and forget-me-nots on me
I'm just a waste of common sense and ideals
Coast to coast we're the safest best, aren't we?
Growing up while burning down without dreams

I'm allright
This last time
Without you
I'm allright
Without you

With all your friends
They'll never stand a chance
Now they're dead
With all your friends
They'll never stand a chance
For one last dance

For one last dance...
Track Name: Our World
It doesn't matter what I say
'cause the words are always wrong
It doesn't matter what I do
but you like it
Spinning on our heads and wonder
why the world would stop for us
Did you ever stop and wonder
why you like it

You say I am the best you'll have

Welcome to our world
Imaginary world

We go on and on for days
spinning on our every whim
Catching up on all the talk
with imaginary friends
Climbing out of our shells
climb into ourselves
Try to aim for our hearts
just to miss again

You say I am the best you'll have

Love, for this moment...
Track Name: Oslo
Looking on a winter’s eve through the dark
Waiting for the street lights to shine through my heart

So slow
I go
I go
Oslo
Walk Home
Oh no!
Oslo
Don’t Go

Stumble on, singing songs to the night
Thought I would find love, but it found someone else tonight

So slow
I go
I go
So slow
Walk home
Oh no!
Olso
Don’t go
I go
So slow
I go
So Slow

Hey Hey
Go get you now
Hey Hey Hey

Walk along, singing songs to the night
Track Name: In Our Next Life
Tell me about this
Play me one more song
It's oh so sad and dull
Tell me what I missed
Tell me what went wrong
It's oh so sad and dull
And I don't want this life
(no I don't want this)
I don't want this life...

We got it wrong
I'm scared of the difference in our thoughts
Everything is broken when you're gone
I am scared, I am scared, I am scared of these thoughts
I'm a bit of everything now

We got it wrong
I can't deal with the distance anymore
You break me to pieces and glue me up
'cause this heart can't be shattered anymore
I'm melodrama and medicine now
Track Name: Dangerous Animals
So is this it?
Is this our mass destruction?
I think it could be
It could be our last party

It's not the reason why I break
It's not the colors that you take
It's not the photos on the wall
Somebody please just help me

I'm running form me
I'm running from all my problems
I think I could be
I think I could be somebody

It's not the words that I can't say
It's not my heart that you must break
It's not the lack of absent cause
It's not the feeling we're so small
It's not your fault
It's 'cause we were doomed from the start
It's not your fault
Somebody please just help me
Track Name: Training Wheels
Waiting on the dark
Voices in my head
Eating at my thoughts
Working on the plan
But haven’t you heard
My story is in reverse
Haven’t you heard
These are the times
These are the times
When you are alone

Haven’t you heard
These are the times
These are the times
When you are alone
Haven’t you heard
These are the times
These are the times
When you are so low
