Brooklyn-based electronic artist Brothertiger (aka John Jagos) has shared his cover of Filter‘s 1999 classic “Take a Picture“.
About the cover, Brothertiger shared: “Today I’m releasing a cover of Filter’s song, ‘Take A Picture’. I’ve wanted to cover this one for a long while, and finally mustered up the courage to do it! This was one of my favorite songs to hear on the radio growing up in the late ’90s. I would always tell my mom to turn it up loud whenever it came on in the car. She always did! Hope you all dig it!”

Brothertiger self-titled 5th album came out in November last year. Grab it here if you haven’t already.
Collecting a handful of singles released over the past year and a half, plus several unheard tracks, the album sees John Jagos, a.k.a. Brothertiger, moving 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. It might be the most impressive set of songs that Jagos has ever made.
