Roy Pitluk Transcends Boundaries With Blues Single, ‘Put A Tiger In My Tank’

Out of Palm Springs, Roy Pitluk has taken the meaning of his life and translated it into song, showing he’s aware of and thankful for the people around him who’ve gone into making him the person he is. In his latest song, ‘Put A Tiger In My Tank’, Roy Pitluk takes to his guitar, and sings about all the connections in his life, and brings them down to just two: a couple who are in love, and enjoy working together to bring meaning to each other.

‘Put A Tiger In My Tank’ is a fun piece, with Pitluk’s voice tearing through the acoustic guitar, stretching out each word while proclaiming his search to find connection with someone else.

The music video shows Pitluk in a motel room, imagining all the parts of his life, that are having an impact on his search for connection. He’s looking anywhere and everywhere: from parties, to searching on the internet, all the while seeking that special someone who will stand by his side. He finds the bliss he’s looking for, symbolised by a tiger he discovers in a bank vault; it’s an interesting comparison, but it’s one that works.

Pitluk is enclosed in a motel room, picturing visions of all the aspects of life that are impacting him on this search for someone to be with him. He is willing to look anywhere to find a connection; from parties to searching the internet, he is on a constant search for someone who would be willing to join his side. Most notably, a tiger found in a bank safe, symbolizes the bliss that securing that connection would feel like. While short and sweet at just over 2 and a half minutes long, ‘Put A Tiger In My Tank’ is exactly long enough to tell the story Roy Pitluk wants to share.
