electronic / alt pop duo

Tigers Are Bad For Horses is Mellen Funke and Lyell Evans Roeder. Blending lilting vocals with piano and production influenced by jazz, r&b, and film score, Tigers has generated growing acclaim over the past year and half performing and producing their music.

“Taking cues from the likes of Sylvan Esso or Haitus Kaiyote, Tigers Are Bad For Horses is one of the top local bands to watch moving into 2016.” (Brightest Young Things) The duo pulls from a broad range of influences to create a powerful and distinct voice that gives them “a sound all their own.” (DC Music Download)

Their debut EP, TABFH, came out December 4, 2015. Their latest single, Embers, was released June 21, 2016.
