I’ve only just stumbled across Gypsy And The Cat, despite them being around for a while now. They have a track on the forthcoming Kitsuné Maison compilation which prompted me it dig a little deeper.
The Australian duo had a bit of blog attention last autumn with the track ‘Jona Vark’, a sweet, chilled, acoustic guitar/Dreamwave clash. Lazy comparisons to Empire Of The Sun seemed to have cropped up on most of the blogs who wrote about them but beyond the use of rich synths and acoustic guitar I think Gypsy And The Cat have a style all of their own.
Both that tune and ‘’Til Tomorrow’ are dreamy summertime Pop songs that show both depth of emotion and a cheeky sense of humour and some laidback soulful electronics.
Gypsy And The Cat are planning to release their début album this year, hopefully in time for summer!
