Stranger Cat Shares Video for ‘Ecstatic Energy,’ Plays Rough Trade Tonight


Stranger Cat
“Ecstatic Energy”
In The Wilderness
Joyful Noise
Stranger Cat will have a record release show on Wednesday (5/20) at Rough Trade with Port St. Willow, Salt Cathedral and Geographer.

If you’ve been listening to independent music over the past several years, you have almost certainly heard Cat Martino’s voice. The Brooklyn native was Sufjan Stevens’ right hand woman for Age of Adz and All Delighted People albums and world tours. She also recorded and toured with Sharon Van Etten circa Epic, sang on Son Lux’s Lanterns and forthcoming Bones, and appeared with The Shins on Saturday Night Live. She has also opened tours for Marissa Nadler, Indians, Rufus Wainwright, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Mark Gardener (of Ride) and Gardens and Villa and released several solo albums as Cat Martino. With Stranger Cat, a natural collaborative partnership developed between Martino and Sven Britt, with each member (both of them skilled multi-instrumentalists) sharing production duties equally. This partnership resulted in their full-length debut In The Wilderness.

Tickets are on sale.
