"The Cat From Hue does an excellent job of bottling all of their sounds and noises into dense packages of pop, rock, folk, psychedelia or whatever you want to call it."

- AS Review


"The Cat From Hue is from Camano Island. We can only assume then that “Hue” is some sort of self-referential island slang. Handclaps, guitars with a slight twang, soulful harmonies, and implications of impossible rooms tastefully decorate their bustling tunes. Fans of The Raggedy Anns’ skiffle rock, and those who have ever wished for an upbeat Castanets, would do well to listen to Stumble On, where those elements make an appearance, but the arrangement makes them shine." - Seattlest

"Sound Off!"

"The Cat From Hue are a clever and instrumentally varied band whose songs coast effortlessly through introspective landscapes of narrative songwriting. With radiant guitars and subtly haunting vocals, this Camano Island, Wash. quintet has created an indie folk sound that is decidedly original" - EMP/SFM

"Lyrical Misinterpretation"

"The five members of this psych-folk outfit sound sweet, with jazz-inspired drums, swirling guitars, and inviting melodies. But don't let The Cat From Hue's warmth fool you; these guys know how to write a biting lyric about the Seattle music industry. Enter "Welcome Back the Rain": "I hear the Puget Sound is the land of the green/I reciprocate the meaning with a speech about the scene." It's a hard sentiment to refute." - Seattle Weekly


"The music itself draws from a plethora of influences. Modest Mouse, Grizzly Bear, Portugal. The Man, and 'of course, the '60's throwbacks' - the Beatles definitely pop into a few tracks. So far, the eclectic influences are working." - Stanwood/Camano News


As My Friend Would Say

Chalk EP: Cinnabar the One O' Clock Fox, Welcome Back the Rain, Never Again, Stumble On...



We've been together for about a year, and we all met through mutual friendships. We're spread out across the Sound, from Bellingham to Bothell, yet still manage to make it to band practice every week. We've been playing shows about every weekend for the last 6 months and just recently had the awesome experience of participating in EMP|SFM's Sound Off 2010! The Chalk EP was released in February, and we are planning on dropping 2 more EP's before the year is done. Come out to the new Hard Rock Cafe' in Seattle on April 25th and check us out!
