Rising duo Fetch Tiger, made up of Lorenzo Montali and Tanner Davis, are about to release their debut Preparation to Pretend EP.

While it's out officially on Friday, the duo have given Variance an early listen of the mesmerizing six-song project, which was recorded in London, wading through emotions of inadequacy and anxiety, to eventual metamorphosis, all told through a variety of characters and narratives. It all results in a fascinating introduction.

As for Fetch Tiger, the band was initially formed in London in 2020, as a project by Florida-raised Montali, who was soon joined by then co-worker Tanner Davis, from Texas, who helped influence a more pop-forward sound.
