MONSTER CAT has shaken Singapore up with the delicate instrumentation and intense imagery that belies their releases. Layered harmonies evoke the supernatural, as fractured love songs cradle listeners between the depths of intimacy and menace.
In 2011, MONSTER CAT released their debut EP Mannequins, which reached listeners in over 198 countries. In a few short years, the Singapore-based band has been voted Artist Of The Week on MTV’s global indie music site, opened for UK livewire act the Noisettes, recorded with Steve Lillywhite (U2, The Killers, The Rolling Stones) and even earned a shout-out from industry guru Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Nine Inch Nails, Deftones).
