Brighton’s indie alternative rock band Wild Cat Strike released their single “Swamp” on Thursday, April 2! It’s part of their new EP Mustard Coloured Years which will be released on April 17.
The group is composed of Max Boughen, Danny Byrom, Chris Whitehorn and Joe Caple. They use instruments such as guitar, piano, synthesizer, bass, drums and Rhodes.
Their EP Mustard Coloured Years is a sequel to their album Rhubarb Nostalgia. Indeed, the last line of the album “I can’t complain” will be the opening of the new EP.
It was recorded and mixed by Joe Caple and mastered by Liam McMillan. The EP is composed of vibrant tracks including “Toothcutter” which is a song about prophecies coming true and about destiny.
Mediastically speaking, the band has been supported by BBC Radio, Rock Show, Radcliffe & Maconie, BBC 6 Music, CLASH, DORK, God Is In The TV Zine and Echoes & Dust.
They have played at festivals such as Y Not Festival, Bad Pond Festival, ArcTanGent and 2000Trees and have toured with artists such as The Xcerts, Delta Sleep and many others.
The Swamp single is dark, it talks about inevitability and morality. The guitars are slow and distorted and express a feeling of blockage and sinking.
