A windows-down car ride through the desert. Graceful surfers shredding blue swells. A suburban road lit only by streetlamps. The big round sun, shimmering over a distant horizon. These are just a few of the images conjured by Brothertiger. He moves through his chillwave roots and into the refined glitz of sophisti-pop, a UK-born microgenre that owes its ’80s and ’90s heyday to key releases by groups like Prefab Sprout and Scritti Politti. Brothertiger’s take on the style is pure escapism — immaculately engineered, retro-leaning songs for romantic vagabonds and urbane daydreamers alike.

John Jagos, the creative force behind Brothertiger, boasts an impressive discography, including four full-length albums under this alias. And that’s not even taking into account his multiple EPs, a cover album dedicated to Tears for Fears, or his prolific four-volume series of livestreamed improvisations titled Fundamentals. This industrious artist consistently churns out finely tuned earworms that are as delightful as a serene sundown on a perfect summer evening.
