Cashmere Cat Mirror Maru + Kiss Kiss
“I look at your face, and I just want to smash it. I just want to smash it with a sledge hammer, and squeeze it, you’re so pretty.”
Punch drunk love in the form of electronic sonnets dripping with spastic kisses and flirty eyelash bats in your direction. Billowy drops race over drumroll heartbeats with a bassline that builds and builds and finally explodes like fireworks. Cashmere Cat‘s ‘Kiss Kiss’ is a jolting (but exciting) roller coaster ride we simply don’t want to get off.
The opening track, “Mirror Maru” is filled with squeeky samples that act like those butterflies that flutter around inside, while simple piano keys, and cleverly layered harp chords create this perfect pairing of oddball quirk and innocent infatuation. You know that feeling… Dancing in the rain love fool, skipping over any patch of darkness, if only to catch a few more rippling keyboard drops of light.
Cashmere Cat just dropped a fantastic four-song EP, Mirror Maru out now on Pelican Fly. Get it via iTunes.
I wrote this for The Line of Best Fit, but added to it because the entire EP is rad and needed some love.
