Biography

Heavily influenced by the lyricism of Jarvis Cocker, the DIY spirit of Bikini Kill, the fuzzy guitars of the Jesus and Mary Chain and the minimalistic psychedelia of the Spacemen 3, Portland, OR based Cat Fancy! is lo-fi feminist space trash that channels the British riot grrrls of yore.

After spending a childhood in Des Moines, a decade in San Francisco and a year in London, Automne Zingg dropped out of art school and moved to Portland with a dream of cheaper rent and easier living. Instead she was greeted by moldy apartments, too much rain and a strip bar on every corner. This was hardly the feminist utopia she had heard so much about. Exasperated and imbued, Automne decided it was time to get a few things off her chest. Armed with a bass, a four track, a left-handed guitar and a borrowed keyboard, Cat Fancy! was created in a moldy living room two years ago.

These songs are true stories. This music is about you, your best friend's diary, the nights you'd like to forget, the cab ride there, making out, growing up, giving up and going on.
