Philly two-piece Honeytiger delve into techno-rock on latest single "Cat Scratch Caviar Bash" - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

While Philly’s Honeytiger is known for delivering full band energy with only two musicians, their latest single, Cat Scratch Caviar Bash — just released this week — is an alt-rock-meets-techno spin on their garage rock sound.

On their most recent 2019 full-length, Brain On The Wall, Honeytiger throws punches of heavy guitar along with the pounding drums of Josh Glauser, shifting pace with brooding rhythms that unfold alongside the entrancing vocals of Isaac Clark. Each track offers a different approach, yet the record remains cohesive as a whole, perhaps due to their distinct, authentic process of only recording what they can play live.

“Cat Scratch Caviar Bash” translates their sound into a rhythmic bass-driven track awash in distortion. Clark’s vocals are minimal and take a distant form, playing into the electronic backing.

If there was a way to visually convey its sound, the single’s cover art does it justice. Its mixture of tertiary red, blue and purple colors opaquely layered over a yellow background is an amalgamation similar to the fused vocal and techno sound composition. The distinct and thin scribble-like lines of red channel the standout bassline.

“Cat Scratch Caviar Bash” is an ardent amalgam of sounds that mold into an energetic whole while maintaining a guitar-based skeleton that drives the duo’s rock sound. Listen to “Cat Scratch Caviar Batch” below.
