Cats On Fire

Danish trio, Mimas, are new to the ever growing and ever grandoise Big Scary Monsters roster. Cats On Fire came out on BSM's free summer sampler (which you can download here).
The softly piped trumpet and throbbing bass of the intro gives way to a flittering guitar line and Gert's half spoken/half yelped vocals, the sounds build like the swell of a wave growing in the ocean. The intricacy of the guitar part contrasts with the stripped down rhythm section causing tension and suspense until the wave breaks on the shoreline and cymbals are smash, guitars pounded with power chord brutality and vocals chords are stretched to an inch of their capacity. Its an epic ending to an intriguingly track.
The video is an odd one too, sock gang violence and sock sex. Strange.

Their album 'The Worries' comes out on BSM on October 6th.
