Still working on that hot first release.



Raised in the urban sprawl of Brooklyn, Stranger Cat—the electro soul pop project from Cat Martino —was born out of a respite in the wilderness. As most stories go, she was seeking a noiseless place for musing, but found instead a sentient beast stalking through the woods, be it animal, alien, or deity; she memorized its sound. With her velvet, ethereal voice as the hypnotic center, Stranger Cat uses live looping, synths, wurlitzer, and an array of ambient effects and crystalline light sculpures, to create layers that weave you into soulful a world all her own.  

Stranger Cat, the frequent collaborator with Sufjan StevensSon LuxThe ShinsSharon Van Etten (circa Epic) and others, has toured internationally, from Bonnaroo to the Sydney Opera House, with her soulful collection of art pop songs. Marked by Martino's velvet croon, signature vocal looping, and driven by a production style that is both electronic and organic, Stranger Cat delivers intricate, soulful, and dark R&B pop. When performing, she invites you into her universe, made of organic sculpted LEDs, as she explores all her inner possibilities. Martino's longtime explorations and studies of mantra and healing sound play their part. NPR cites it "Pairs high-energy production with soaring vocals that sound like a dare to be free", while Noisey says it "Hangs in a starry galaxy alongside Bat For Lashes, Kate Bush, Chew Lips, and Purity Ring".
