The Native Cats are the perfect example of ‘less is more’. Armed with just a drum machine, bass, vocals and what looks like a Nintendo DS based synth, Chloe Escott and Julian Teakle power through songs from John Sharp Toro, their LP from last year, . The basslines are simple but raw, mixing with the pounding drum machine loops and Chloe‘s raw vocals and evocative lyrics. It sort of sounds like if LCD Soundsystem were a Talking Heads cover band with only two members, and who are also extremely angry, and it was sublime. Chloe‘s DS synth added some flair to the spectacle as she set up weird and warm loops or harsh affectations to the songs in all the right places.
