Your Cat Is A Landmine – ‘Natalie Portman’s Tapeworm’
Surely the most downright peculiar collection of words ever to head a review – music or otherwise? Anyway…
‘Natalie Portman’s Tapeworm’ is the lead track from Lincoln based (not to mention fantastically named) three piece Your Cat Is A Landmine’s new EP, ‘A Gift Horse You Can’t Ignore’. And sweet jesus, WHAT a tune. Expertly crafted, like a great piece of furniture; you can tell Mike (Guitar, Backing Vocals, Keyboards), Ben (Bass, Lead Vocals) and Alex (Drums, Backing Vocals) are not only biblically talented, they also love the music they’re making. And on ‘Natalie Portman’s Tapeworm’, it shows. Opening with a gorgeously thick, intricate guitar and building via insistent riffs through a double verse and fabulous bridge to one of the absolute best choruses I’ve heard in years. Try and fight off the urge to sing along. You won’t be able to manage it. Trust me.
‘Natalie Portman’s Tapeworm’ is an absolute stormer of a tune; three and a half minutes of sheer auditory pleasure. I can’t stop listening to it. Well done fellas.
