John Jagos, the brain behind and sole member of Brothertiger, doesnu2019t aspire to be anything other than himself. His tunes are ostensibly u201cchillwave,u201d but with a sparkling melodic sense that sets them apart from other artists under that umbrella. Since the projectu2019s beginning during Jagosu2019 freshman year at Ohio University, Brothertiger has developed a nuanced sound that attempts to blend the human and animal elements suggested by its name.
