The London-based union of Alejandro 'Ale' Romero (bass, vocals, Spain), João Seixas (guitar, vocals, Portgual), Leïla Séguin (flute, vocals, Corsica/France) and Josh Oldershaw (drums, UK) harnesses an altogether fluid, rhythmic and exquisitely melodic energy as colorful and enigmatic as their band name, forged from different strands of DNA, primarily bossa-nova, Afro-pop and Western folk and rock, but even here it's varied, as much Animal Collective as it is Arthur Lee's Love. This "EU" concoction was first tasted on Cat's five-track EP debut 'Peach Bells' in December 2014, and now it's their equally stunning debut album 'Sugar Now'. For the album, they teamed up again with Brooklyn producer Rusty Santos (Animal Collective, Beach House, Grizzly Bear, DJ Rashad) in a Lisbon studio.
