Wild Cat Strike have announced a brand new EP titled The Blood Orange Sessions, set for release on 23rd August 2019 via Small Pond Recordings and available to preorder now. Today, we debut the wistful accordion slathered strum ‘Everyone Feels The Same’ lifted from the release, possessing a deft bruised world-weariness thatt stokes distant embers of the likes of Bright eyes, Modest Mouse or Sparklehorse, listen below.
Featuring exclusive live sessions, reimaginings, and alternate versions of tracks from their full-length debut Rhubarb Nostalgia (out now), the EP is a beautifully packaged treat for fans both old and new that shows a softer and more introspective side to their diverse, chameleonic pop.
The quartet also recently revealed an appearance at ArcTanGent Festival alongside a short run of UK headline shows with support from label mate Natalie Evans, including a London show on 1st September at The Old Blue Last.
“Channelling their gleeful sense of cacophony and flair for sonic abrasion into an engrossing record of off-kilter indie pop songs that hook hard on the heartstrings as they crisscross in and out of chaos, they developed their sound via a slew of live shows (including sets at 2000 Trees and Y Not Festival, and support shows for the likes of The Xcerts and LIRR).”
The Blood Orange Sessions EP is released 23rd August 2019 via Small Pond Recording.
