Bristol alt/post punk quintet Birdman Cult have aired their new single “Housecat“.
The track is out now via Analogue Trash and is another taste of their debut LP, out later this year. Grab it here.
Since their formation in 2020, Birdman Cult have been distilling their distinct blend of hook-heavy, post-punk and garage-rock sound – one the band describes as “anthemic-doomy rock and roll” – into a brew as fine as bourbon, as sharp as vodka, and as intoxicating as the best absinthe. Housecat is the band at their raw and dark best.
There’s a lot of talk these days about people’s reluctance to engage in the world. Streaming is winning out over the silver screen, and apps are replacing real world dating. Housecat sees Birdman Cult tackle the latter phenomenon in their own unique and fun-filled style.
Vocalist Joe says: “We’re saying stop fearing the outside world, come out of yourself and get a little dirty its fine! The song speaks to all the domesticated alley cats out there! It’s a cautionary tale to the try-hard and designer-dirty posers and an appeal to the pampered felines that should maybe come out from their comfortable scratch pads and roll around in the streets with some friendly tomcats.”
