Cat’s Eyes is one of my new favorite bands. I love the 60′s dark dance vibe and the quiet, sweet tunes.
Here’s the description from YouTube:
A short 4Play film that first aired on Channel 4 Thurs 2nd June 2011, introducing Cat’s Eyes. Cat’s Eyes are a duo formed by Rachel Zeffira, a renowned opera soprano and classical multi-instrumentalist, and Faris Badwan, the singer from British psychedelic-rockers The Horrors.
Here’s a list (in alphabetical order) of my favorite music of 2011:
Chapel Club – Palace – I discovered this band from London through Suede’s twitter. Turns out Chapel Club was opening for Suede so I looked up who this band was and I loved what I heard on Youtube, and then the CD was played non-stop at work, in the car, iPod, and at home. There’s hints of The Smiths, Joy Division, Echo and the Bunnymen, and the recent bands they’ve inspired but still Chapel Club does their own thing that I really appreciate.
Sitting on my bed at the Westin in Houston I came across the new video by The Horrors for their song “I Can See Through You”. It’s reawakened my love of the mirror/ kaliedascope effect and reminds me, and everybody, that The Horrors can do no wrong. It’s a trippy and beautiful 2001-esque ride that only makes the song better. Directed by White Rabbit. Watch it. Love it.
Here’s some new music I’ve been digging this week. It’s more of an EP length video mixtape but it’s quality music from great bands from the UK. Enjoy!
