The project is signed to the fine German label darkTunes and was formed in 2016 by the duo Jens Helmis (frontman) and Christian Schinköthe who – as the bandname already suggests – have a strong love for felines. The band is live strengthened by 2 guitarists and a female backingvocalist. We were not only impressed by the music but also by the visual approach as you can see above.
The band’s first album release via the label was “Let Us Fall Together”, an album holding 12 songs of which one is the track we feature today, “Hold On Your Souls”. Expect minimalistic electronics mixed with dark vocals. Out as well is the album “Rising Demons”, again featuring the band’s trademark approach. A duo to keep an eye on, do follow them on Facebook!
You can listen to “Hold On Your Souls” right below.

Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute.
