This is an archive of the band profile for Run Speed Tiger.

Run Speed Tiger was formed in 2010 by Thomas Theakston, Dominic Barker and Kelly Wright. Discovering that the post-graduation world required more effort and hard work than they were prepared to give, the three friends from Leeds fled and took shelter under warm fuzzy blankets of sentimentality to craft songs about nostalgia, childhood and their beloved home town.

With influences as diverse as Sufjan Stevens, Russ Columbo, Patrick Hamilton, Neutral Milk Hotel, John Atkinson Grimshaw, Edward Thomas and British Sea Power, Run Speed Tiger hopes to ward off the inevitable ravages of time and the responsibilities of the future for just a few more precious moments..
