Not every band in Russia was sent to prison this year. Cat’s Park hail from Saint Petersburg and a successful 2012 has culminated the release of their latest single, Safety. The song recalls Portishead and the trip-hop heyday of the 90s. Faijee’s vocals are a hypnotic embodiment of sultry emotion that testify to her long history as a jazz musician. Alex Andreev produces the track. His understated melodies help create Cat’s Park’s signature sound.
Earlier in the year Cat’s Park released Face The Future, a five-track EP which help to promote the band’s alternative sound. The EP was co-produced by Christian Wright, whose collaborations include Muse, Keane and Franz Ferdinand. The work was done at the world famous Abbey Road studios and the final product help to cement Cat’s Park’s reputation as a serious contender on the European stage. Cat’s Park’s Bandcamp site showcases both the single and EP releeases.
Safety is out now and is available on iTunes and Amazon.
