Catnip & Claws is just a girl who writes music with a penchant for cats and computers. Really, that is all she would like you to know, but for the curious…there is a little more…Once upon a time, there was a musician with a love of technology and a dream of bending rules and weaving tales. She blended instruments, electronica, the sounds of life and random paraphernalia. She wants to tell you a story of old times and new adventures. She hopes each piece takes you on an enchanted journey of modern nostalgia through melody, texture and rhythmic timelines.
Catnip & Claws – Halcyon Days EP will be released July 7th on digital format worldwide.
Catnip & Claws brings a unique electronic and visual style to the table, fusing melodies and beats with a magical twist.
Halcyon Days EP is available at Amazon MP3 through the link below:
