John Jagos began his chillwave project, Brothertiger, during his freshman year at Ohio University, challenging himself to develop a nuanced sound that blends the human and animal elements suggested by its name. More than just a button-pushing electronic artist, Jagos is a prolific one-man-band here, playing synths, singing, and running an array of sequencers and samplers to craft a complex, layered soundscape full of warm, tasteful melodies.
Featured song: “Like Water”
Brothertiger’s “Reach It All” single is out now on Mush Records.
