Fresh, innovative indie swing from Vienna.

Originally a three-piece and now a quartet, Marina & The Kats has been one of the
most exciting and trailblazing bands in Austria (if not Europe) for years, as anyone
who has ever had the chance to catch one of their many high-octane shows will
confirm.

No fewer than three of the four band members play drums. "Joint drum duties
doesn’t make life easy," the band admits, "but it makes for an immense listening
experience." - and that’s the Marina & The Kats trademark: a totally independent
sound that grabs the songs by the scruff of the neck and ensures that no one will be
leaving the venue without their groove on.

This sound is clear to hear in the songs on their new album, which the band recorded
over the last few months with founder members Marina and Thomas at the helm.
Their new record "Different" is, on the one hand, as coarse as it is frank, infused with
a reassuringly rough and ready swagger. It is also, understandably though, a musical
reflection of the last year. A rollercoaster ride of a year that started promisingly with
concerts in Israel, Germany and Austria, suddenly came to an abrupt halt. So too did
the band as the ingrained drive and passion for the stage hit a metaphorical brick
wall, leaving them to come to terms with the fact that life and making music had
come to a complete standstill.

The upshot of this process of self-discovery was the decision to record live with no
“safety net”. “Different” is simply four thoroughbred musicians responding and
reacting to each other – as the old cliché goes! A snapshot of uncompromising
music-making from the heart, leaving any little mistakes alone as long as the
performance stays true to the song and the feeling it is meant to convey.

"Different" proves yet again that Marina & The Kats have established themselves as
an exceptional and unique outfit on the Austrian music scene. It is a record to listen
to, to dance and party to - just like their previous albums. This time around, though,
it’s bolder and more relevant than ever.
