Don’t let the sleepy vibe of “Only In December” fool you, this melodic, hazy track will be swirling in your head after a listen or two. Melbourne’s Gypsy & the Cat (aka 24-year-old Xavier Bacash and 26-year-old Lionel Towers) have a sound that hovers between early MGMT and Empire of the Sun and could have a similar impact when their sophomore LP The Late Blue drops this May. Stream “Only In December” and the tropical pop fun of “Sorry” below:
Pre-order The Late Blue via iTunes or Amazon. I feel like 90% of the posts I’ve written in the past 12 months are about bands from Melbourne. Seriously, what is in the water over there?
