The Cathys – Hysterical Monument

The Cathys are new on me. They’re from Sydney in Australia. They’ve just released their four track debut 7″ single. You can buy it over on Bandcamp. They remind a little of The Loft. In as much as it sounds like what indiepop sounded like in 1985 and the vocals are just off kilter. This is basement pop. This is the sound of jangly guitars and for once, it doesn’t sound stale. It doesn’t sound like a 4th generation rip of something from the 60s or mid 80s. Sometimes the kids have still got it.

This 7″ is a keeper. Go support a new band and buy the download or the 7″ if you can stomach the postage from down under.
