Today Unearthed Review is blissed out with Cat Cat.
Today’s random selection is Cat Cat who want you to know this about them:
Cat Cat formed mid 2008 and are Conor, Kieran and Warwick, with various other members coming and going leaving a trail of awesomeness.
This combination of members and style allows the band to stay on a steady road of up beat, jangling, bright and crisp guitars and drums. They’re sound has been described as a ‘a band from the past who found a massive time machine and went back to the future. Sounds old, feels new, kind of music.’
They have released an EP ‘DIG MOUNTAINS’ which is available free via http://www.birdslovefighting.com
In the words of TripleJ’s Steph Hughes: “Spiky lo fi pop”.
Certainly having The Chills in their “sounds like” is no joke.
On each of the songs here a riff opens up, and maintains a metronome like regularity through the song, and later a droning vocal overlays the riff, and then you’re done.
If you’re looking to have an emotional wallow on a bleak day this is just the ticket.
