Seven Purple Tigers – “Ignorance Is Blitz”


“Ignorance Is Blitz” is the latest from Seven Purple Tigers, showing a catchy guitar-fronted rock sound within “a look back on a relationship gone awry.” Echoing a stylish aesthetic reminiscent of early ’00s post-punk revival, with radio-friendly appeal in the vein of Editors and Franz Ferdinand, “Ignorance Is Blitz” rides on accessible, confident production. The “to end, yet again,” punctuating hook excels with its energy, as does the escalating bridge, particularly the “fools rushing in,” segment around the three-minute turn.

Based out of Freiburg, Germany, Seven Purple Tigers was formed by Austin Horn (singer/rhythm guitar) and Phil Dyszy (lead guitar/backing vocals), from the US and Germany, respectively. The duo first began crafting their collaborative sound in the town of Kraków, Poland, with Seven Purple Tiger coming to fruition after five years of writing and performing live, alongside bandmates Sebastian Heieck (bass) and Felix Schwer (drums).

“Ignorance Is Blitz” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2021’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Rock.
