Wildcat! Wildcat!, a Los Angeles indie pop trio complete with dual falsetto vocals and contagious synth beats have been stirring up quite a buzz with just three singles released to date. Impressively enough that’s all it took to convince the powers that be that they should be cast as Alt-J’s support on their west-coast tour. Their single, “Mr. Quiche” utilizes the vocalist’s high-pitched abilities well amidst the multilayered Passion Pit reminiscent beat. The music video for “Mr. Quiche” also features a man break dancing in a cat suit. Nylon Magazine calls Wildcat! Wildcat!”…one of the five bands you have to hear in 2013.”

Critically acclaimed, Wildcat! Wildcat!, after making their SXSW debut, where they caught the attention of NPR Music, Daytrotter, “Huffington Post” and BuzzFeed, are about to embark on their first-ever solo tour beginning this June with a first appearance in San Diego at the Casbah, 2501 Kettner Blvd San Diego on June 22. Doors open at 8:30 p.m. and tickets are $10.00 and $12.00. You must be 21 with a valid ID to attend. There also may be a small cover charge, check their website for more information.

Wildcat! Wildcat! go way back. — to middle school when they were all about 13 years old. Now all brushing or passing age 21, and after nearly eight years of playing experience, lead singers Jesse Taylor and Michael Wilson and drummer Jesse Carmichael all share more than a few strong common bonds; the propensity for making music being the obvious. Over the span of years the guys have played together in one fashion or another, but didn’t delve into this project until 2012, when it just felt like time. Ever since, they’ve been meeting weekly at their downtown Los Angeles recording studio/loft space and creating those indulgent indie/electro/pop/beats you hear today.

Wildcat! Wildcat! has their name wrong. It should be Wildfire! Wildfire! because that’s how quickly the Los Angeles trio’s first two singles have spread across the Internet. The pop concoctions of Taylor, Wilson and Carmichael fall squarely onto the plate of today’s now-fashionable indie R&B. But there’s nothing minimalist about the emotional uplift of their two singles, “Mr. Quiche” and “The Chief.” Wildcat! Wildcat! is receiving widespread praise with Buzz Bands L.A. admiring their “lush melodies, falsetto vocals, arching harmonies, all produced with admirable restraint.”

Neon Gold, the taste-making independent label who released Wildcat! Wildcat!’s latest “The Chief,” notes that, “It was their Royal Tenenbaums-inspired calling card and flawless aesthetic that first caught our eye, but it wasn’t long before the trio’s technicolor serendipity pop had us hook, line and sinker…Wildcat! Wildcat! create a bristling soundscape like no other.” The band plans to release their debut EP this summer. Visit http://wildcatwildcat.com for sound samples, downloads and more information.
