These nimble Cats find ways to spice up the familiar in their funk-infused alt-rock, exhibiting a level of musicianship that makes each song a fun, finesse-filled ride and suggests these guys are a dazzling unit on a live stage. They may at times be a little too clever for their own good, as for example, a catchy tune like “Feelings Underground” is laden with an expansive one-minute long intro. Some of us prefer the fun, energetic, trumpet-infused “Animals” with its big, funky footprint and group vocals that echo early Maroon 5. The dramatic build-up and overall raucous energy of “Valley of the Sun” suggests that this quartet can really put on a show. Meanwhile, it would be interesting to see them hook up with a producer who can sculpt their material.
