New Music: Cat’s Eyes ‘Drag’


UK’s Cat’s Eyes are pleased to announce their new album ‘Treasure House’, set for worldwide release on RAF via Kobalt Label Services on June 3rd 2016. ‘Drag’ is the masterful first single to be released in Australia (including its confronting new video) from the distinctively alternative-pop duo made up of Faris Badwan (best known as lead vocalist in English indie rockers The Horrors) and Italian-Canadian soprano Rachel Zeffira.

“Drag” is the story of a bad relationship too irresistible to deny, despite better judgement. Starting with Zeffira’s divinely gossamer voice over wistful piano, there’s a distinct feeling of romantic doom hanging over the intro, but then the song turns, real musical drama kicks in, and it becomes clear that just because everyone says he’s bad for you doesn’t mean you have to listen or give a goddam.  In fact the more they tell you to walk away, the deeper in you go.
