The Multiple Cat: “The Hill Pt. 1”
With exceptions, British pop is almost never my first choice when it comes to music selection. So it was with some trepidation that I approached listening to Multiple Cat, whom Allmusic refers to as “Iowa’s best British pop band.” I am glad to report, however, that I found Multiple Cat to be much better than what I generally hear coming out of the British Isles these days – sophisticated piano pop that sounds not at all dated, which is surprising considering the band originally formed in the nineties and has only recently gotten back together. The band, which generally centers around vocalist/pianist Patrick Stolley, has their first record in 13 years coming out this Spring on Guilt Ridden Pop. Check out a video from the band’s single “The Hill Pt. 1” below, and if you dig it you can head to the record release show this Friday at the Kitty Cat Klub (with Real Numbers, Fury Things and Principality).
