    Sweetness and sunshine are the flavour of the day when it comes to local Melbourne popsters, Summer Cats. Together since mid 2006, this effervescent girl/boy 5 piece are delighted to announce the release of their debut Australian EP, Scratching Post, through Popboomerang Records.

    Featuring former Earthmen lead singer Scott Stevens, Summer Cats sprang the litter at their debut show at the Tote, Melbourne in November 2006. Since that time, they have stretched their claws to an ever widening audience, whilst barely shaving a whisker off their nine lives in the process.

    Their progression from kittenhood was sealed with a 3 ½ star review on Pitchforkmedia.com for their Hush Puppy demo. Last December, film director Spike Jonze completed this transition, referencing the band as a must see live act in a radio interview on Triple R.

    Most recently the band have purred their way into the US of A with a limited 3” CD release on a Miami based boutique label Cloudberry Records and a split 7” with Portland band Eux Autres.

    In 2007, the sun continues to shine on the Summer Cats’ new release, Scratching Post. Their fizzy pop guitar and rousing vocal harmonies reveal varied influences, including everything from The Go Betweens to Stereolab and The Modern Lovers. However one thing’s for sure... when the cats come out to play, the pop is here to stay!
