Combining elements of indie rock, alternative pop and psychedelia, “Belly Button” is the impressive, guitar-driven debut single from Sydney four-piece China Tiger. We’re pleased to host the premiere ahead of the single’s release tomorrow.
“‘Belly Button’ is about a period of time spent away from a loved one,” explains vocalist and guitarist Jake Stiles. “As the title may hint, ‘Belly Button’ is also a celebration of the women who have been important in my life. From my single mother, grandmother and partner at the time when I wrote this. I wanted to document the way that life repeats itself in cycles and as we grow we may inevitably change. It is no coincidence that we chose (it) as our first release, as it mirrors birth and the women that gift life into this world.”
