There have been some incredible singles inspired by cats. Remember Nada Surf’s “Meow Meow Lullaby”, and Jack off Jill’s “My Cat”? Well, “My Cat is the Best Cat” from the up and coming Australian artist Fingermae almost finds the perfect balance between the two. You get the jangly up-vibe melodic playful rhythms and Indie Rock vocals, along with the sublime riffs, but this time, the riffs play out Rockabilly tones.
And it goes without saying that the lyrics in My Cat is the Best Cat are incredible. I’ll almost let them off for the “your cat is not as good” taunt. It’s a unique way to aurally invoke visceral emotion, but it’s pretty damn effective.
You can check out Fingermae’s impossibly endearing single for yourselves by heading here.
