Reliably informed

If I heard these stray cats prowling around the alleys in the dead of night, scrapping with each other and howling up a storm, I wouldn’t be mad. Formed over the height of the pandemic in Newcastle, Tom Cat E And The Strays have pawed together a collection of hard rock hitters, starting with debut single Emilio’s Monster.

Grab your cat nip and buckle up for a non-stop, relentless head banger which purr-fectly blends together the genre’s more fur-miliar elements; punctuating guitar, galvanised bass and paw-erly drums and still invites an air of flair and originality. The Strays deliver it in a frantic, driven and convincing manner that keeps it as fresh as door delivered milk. Last one – Mew-sic.
