Following guerrilla gigs at the Vatican and Buckingham Palace, Cat’s Eyes bring their gloriously sinister baroque pop to Leeds for the first time as part of Beacons Metro 2016.On their 2011 debut the duo of Faris Badwan (The Horrors) and operatically-trained singer and multi-instrumentalist Rachel Zeffira spliced saturnine post-punk with sixties girl group sounds. Their soundtrack for The Duke of Burgundy matched the film’s homage to cult seventies cinema with a lavish concoction of Morriconesque menace and Broadcast’s harpsichord-laden reverie. The first single from their latest critically-acclaimed album, Drag is a pitch-black psychodrama accompanied by its own video nasty, and their fully-fledged live show is bound to be an unforgettable experience.
