about

Your Cat is a Landmine Lincoln, UK

An art/rock trio looking for the missing link between pop & post-rock, which they believe is to be found somewhere in the gaps between quiet/loud/quiet/loud.

Their sound is a contradiction of monstrous riffs & quirky arrangements reminiscent of Cage the Elephant, Biffy Clyro & Joy Division. Oddball lyrics and a prize fighter's attitude combine well to create an uncompromising post-rock geek chic.

Track Name: Natalie Portman's Tapeworm
You could say it if you wanted to
Cut your losses take your whims and you run
It’s your calling

Never doubt the possibility
Secrets lie in dust for times and a day
Hear them calling

Hear the heathen of the earnest day
Never leaving light for signs of a miss
Hear them failing
Hear the heathen of the earnest day
Cutting out the middle man
Losing to the next play
Should it be the "your way", best way, no way, always tied.

You can hear me falling
There’s nothing left to say
This is the end I’m leaving
I can see/hear you calling,
But I will walk away.
No patience and no time.

Hang the keys up by the open fire
Realism left at home with the kids
Time escaping

Leave the memories of another day
Drop the keys at home with dogs and the kids
Now escaping.
Track Name: Canada Water
Crawled into your house
A due that’s owed, my friend
Stay a while to leave the day behind
Followed many lies
Confused? It shows, my friend
Still

Shine a light
Shine a light
All this pain amounts to nothing
I feel your pain
Shine a light
All the shame amounts to nothing
I feel your ...

Many I have seen
To hide away, my friend
Tomorrow leaves a trail upon the dust
Scales above the fog
Lonesome? Us, too

Fallen, fallen
I feel your pain
Poison, poison
I feel your pain
Fallen, I'm fallen
I feel your pain
Track Name: Cougar Love Adventure
With eyes, we see
The hope fall out of the day we met
Alone we feel
A half-time stain upon the world
I recall our talks of longer summers
Into dry leaves
Another time of grace to leave a memory birthed to both of us

Calling you round, I am now blown away
With every find, you steal twelve hours from me
Caught up in mystery
Caught up, taking all of it

Open arms, close around the dream of summer
Blocked a piece, sane, the tide ebbs ever darker
If a change to be made could affect how the lines are drawn round my eyes from all the mist, it hides the ledge from which I’ll fall to peace and crash in pieces

A break, a sign, a stain upon the wall, reminds us of the line
Corrected actions now recur with no remorse or fine contempt
Look a little bit closer; see the pain now turned to rage
My actions follow closely
Brought forward time and space
Run a little bit further now, make the chase a conquest raining down on you
