When it comes to felines, free speech is a good thing when you;re talking 1974’s ‘Cats In The Cradle’ penned by Harry Chapin, through to Shonen Knife’s ‘Like A Cat’ and The Cure’s ace ‘Love Cats’.
Somehow, I have decided to pull my claws in and view the new offering by musician multimedia artist as well now as Cat Woman, Amy Raasch who is said to have delivers a psychedelic spin on the Internet’s obsession with cats in “KITTY DECIDES” – you have been warned.
An adoptee herself, Raasch has always had a soft spot for homeless animals. “Some mistrust cats’ changeable moods. It is true that cats do exactly what they want, when they want. How different is that from the human heart? It’s equally unwieldy and impossible to control.”
The single uses cat meow samples and a euro-like delivery arguably 1980’s inspired retro-electro-pop, a novelty, but not quite an analogue anthem of the aforementioned, even with the video featuring the talents of a rock band of seven year-old girls, if you like cats, it may even be a delight, for muself however I just miss the guitars and a sense of purpose. 6.5/10
