“This band is like a pot of synth gold at the end of the pop rainbow.” …neon gold

Melbourne duo GYPSY & THE CAT sailed their 80's synth infused take on yatch rock through the musical waters with their debut album 'GILGAMESH'. Created by early 20 year olds at the time and in their own home studio, it excited the likes of Neon Gold, found a release on Young and Lost in the UK, a slot on a Kitsune Maison compilation, and a spot on NME Poll for the twenty "most likely", had a Top 10 debut album in Germany and Australia, all on it's own musical merit.

GYPSY & THE CAT were surrounded by industry and expectations and the ultimate result turned out to be a band evolving through their own journey of touring, writing and living music.

The first taste of this evolution is their new single 'BLOOM', a sonic melting pot of a soaring infectious refrain. A dreamscape ballad with washed out melodies and driving tom-fuelled rock and dance-floor highs. Last month ‘Bloom’ made a #2 debut in the US on the FMBQ sun modern rock charts and went to #3 on the Hype Machine charts.

The single and forthcoming album ‘THE LATE BLUE’ were recorded and produced by the band and mixed with style by Dave Fridmann ( MGMT, Tame Impala, The Flaming Lips).
Arum Rae
Arum Rae
Arum Rae, formally by the name White Dress, is a modern day siren. Her rock and blues influenced melodies lure the audience into a trance. As she plays, the room falls silent except for her sultry voice and electric guitar. While comparisons to PJ Harvey and Patti Smith may abound, Arum Rae accomplishes a wider range of sound and feel with a minimal cast of musicians, a drummer and bassist, but often playing alone. Less is more with Rae.

Musically infused by Patsy Cline and Leonard Cohen, as much as by Bach and Hank Williams, she’s able to concoct a soul & dance revival, which delicately plays all over the full sonic spectrum.

Arum Rae has worked with everyone from the Black Keys, Peter Bjorn & John, Gary Clark Jr., and The Civil Wars, but she is now primed to take command of her own destiny. Having co-wrote the song “If I Didn’t Know Better,” with John Paul White, of The Civil Wars, that got picked up by the ABC TV Show “Nashville” and quickly climbed the Country charts, Arum continues to follow her passion. As Sean Moeller from Daytrotter Live so succinctly states about Arum Rae, “this is the scene of the mental bloodbath. She wins. Rae sings, "He doesn't want me/He's just in it for the kill," cutting a line that smokes out of the speaker, along with the kind of kick ass garage-rock blues that Jack White would drop a jaw around."
