Give It Up for the Dreamers
Why we love CAUTION CAT here at GMP:
Hit play on almost any Caution Cat song, and the result just shouts music placement. For an indie artist, that is a really really good thing. Sure, there’s undeniable ‘indie cred’ to the songs, but there’s also a lot more going on under the hood that backs it up. The instrumentation is refreshingly homespun and groovy, and the arrangements are intentional and well crafted. The lyrics are always original - not your usual girl/boy/love/hate subject matter song after song - and they’re immediately visual and unfold great, sometimes obscure portraits dressed up in a hook-y retro-meets-modern style. Importantly, they never cross the line of sounding contrived - you get the sense that these songs come about naturally and legitimately, and aren’t forced. And hey, Caution Cat has a song called “Buy a Llama”, and we, uh, have a llama… so really… enough said.
Why you need to know about CAUTION CAT:
If you have the words “music supervisor” on your business card, or have anything else to do with finding music for picture, commercials, TV, film, etc - we seriously recommend getting a hold of a bunch of Caution Cat tracks asap and keeping them close by - we think they’ll continually find a home. Or, if you just use the words “music lover” to describe yourself, then we recommend doing the same - Caution Cat could easily accent the soundtrack to anyone’s story.
