Asheville-based Window Cat, a funk-infused, jazz-saturated six-person ensemble, is about to drop a new album, Land On Your Feet, and Asheville Grit is thrilled to premiere their song "Agent Orange," forthcoming on the new album.
Window Cat will celebrate their upcoming release at a show this Friday, March 3, at Isis Music Hall with Nashville's Dynamo.
"Agent Orange" is the band members' direct reflection on the state of contemporary society and the current political climate, expressing the band's "rawest emotions . . . in the heat of political frustration and anger." The weightiness of the song's subject matter fits well with the energetic brass and driving synth and guitar lines, which are tempered by the soulful, smooth vocals. The song captures a range of emotions and reactions from a group poised to break into the local and regional music scenes.
Window Cat is Tyler Long (lead vocals, keyboard), Max Witt (keyboard), Ben Paulson (drumset), Brennan Dugan (bass guitar), Rob Rigsby (guitar), Jacob Secor (saxophone), and John Inglese (trombone).
The evening at Isis begins at 9 pm on the main stage. Window Cat will be accompanied by a full horn line that will include members of Empire Strikes Brass. They will take album pre-orders at the show. Tickets for the show are $7/$10.
