"The Cat Killers"


“The Cat Killers are a band that should be experienced live to really get the full experience. Their music is reminiscent of four friends holding hands as one of them grabs an electric fence… a shock and a wakeup call, but at the same time they are so comfortable together that it feels right at home. …the singer Bea’s voice takes the listener on a journey like an Alice in Wonderland for grown-ups, from sugar-sweet to the raw energy that borders on manic cockiness.”
Marita Isaksson – Kombi (Swedish music industry trade magazine) - Kombi


"The Cat Killers"

The Cat Killers play eccentric, dadaist playground punk at its best. With one foot in the grave and the other in the sandbox, they are fearless in the face of the simple, the complex, the vulgar and the beautiful. A song title like: "Get Ben Affleck out of the closet" says rather a lot, and "Mercy Fuck" considerably more. Beyond the classic punkrock arsenal of drums, bass and guitar, you'll find the Cat Killers armed with melodica, xylophone, saw... and occasional ukelele. - Denim Magazine


"The Cat Killers demo"

The Cat Killers bring you energetic punk pop that awakens the child within. I get the feeling that on a good night the group, fronted by the charismatic Bea, can be sensationally good live. Hopefully I will have the time to investigate that when the group finishes the album that they are recording in Svenska Grammofonstudion” Gaffa (Danish / Swedish music magazine)

"The Cat Killers demo review"

“I saw The Cat Killers live a year ago and the feeling that I got then is the same that I have now, listening to their recordings featuring the tremendous raw power of their vocalist, Bea. She made the whole live show and she makes the recordings stand out with a cocky voice and superb expression. With a front woman like that you can go very far, especially since their naïve-punk-pop hit songs are tailor-made for her.”
Daniel Claeson, Göteborgs Posten (Swedish national newspaper)

"The Cat Killers"

"Femme fronted Swede garage punkers with really witty/silly lyrics about self harm and stuff...it's like The Yeah Yeah Yeahs meets X Ray Spex via Liliput and really early Blondie...yeah, great stuff.
Punktastic. Judicious use of ukulele and melodica is goodly as is the token rockabilly number 'I'm gonna push you down the stairs' ...'Dadaist playground punk' indeed. - Bugbear Bookings

Bio

Gothenburg based band The Cat Killers bring you Dadaist Alice in Wonderland punk: energy driven,bizarre and theatrical.

The band formed in winter 2007 influenced by a wide variety of punk, garage, burlesque, rock and theatre tunes.

The band is best known for its live performances where their stage energy and music are combined with live choreographed video projections to deliver a highly entertaining and thoroughly visual show. In addition, the band's instrumental arsenal goes far beyond the traditional guitar/bass/drums combowith saw, ukulele, melodica and stylophone all making an appearance, creating a unique sound which really comes into its essence on the live stage.

The Cat Killers have just finished recording at Svenska Grammofon Studio, one of Scandinavia’s top recording studios together with highly respected producer Hans Olsson (Timo Räisänen, Hello Saferide, Ida-Maria etc.)

Regulars in their hometown of Gothenburg at the top club venues, The Cat Killers recently toured blitzkrieg style in England where they brought their show to some of London's classic punk venues.The band have got shows lined up in Stockholm, Malmö and Berlin in the near future along with radio play on P3 and Mix Megapol in Sweden and Blaast radio podcast in England.
