Cats of Transnistria return with ‘Love’

Cats of Transnistria reveal the first fruits from their forthcoming sophomore release

Cats of Transnistria return with their first new original material in over a year. ‘Love’ is the first taste from their forthcoming sophomore release.

Cats of Transnistria tell us: “It’s the first single from our forthcoming second album which will be released Winter 2017.  Violist Sanna Komi has joined us for the album, adding extra beauty to the sound. The single ‘Love’ is exceptionally delicate, aerial and light for us. But the love talked about is, obviously, not real or healthy.”

Initial reaction to ‘Love’

“This is a fantastic piece of work that will be high on the end of year lists” SWIT

“A celestial indie treasure from 2017.” One Quart Magazine

“With lovely, haunting vocals over a minimalist arrangement, it is going to get repeated plays from yours, truly.” When You Motor Away

“As the track unfolds, tiny touches of strings and piano float in and out, creating a beautiful haunted atmosphere that will take you off into the ether.” Austin Town Hall

Praise for Cats Of Transnistria

Gold Flake Paint “The effect is both hypnotic and all-consuming in its simplicity.
The Monitors  “They are masters of developing expectant atmospheres, suspended anticipation, before swooping in with fantastical climaxes that transport the listener into a transcendent state.”
Funk “…a record that involves the listener even more, your mind filling in the gaps left, populating the spaces in the lines with your own imagery, your own falling clouds and rolling reverse waves.”
