Refreshing indie music with poetic lyrics

New wave pop with driving guitars and insistent melodies, bit like the Only Ones, but with a louche Pete Doherty-esque vocal and some well-placed mournful trumpet on their less edgy slower tunes.
— Bugbear
With post-punk energy and shambolic charm, Cats On The Beach find themselves somewhere between Bob Dylan, Joy Division and The Libertines. Not to be missed.
— Adam DT, The Punk Archive
COTB always manage to maintain their unique and sublime sound. Pop without being cheese, rock without being cliché and punk without being dumb. They surf these genres seamlessly and Rob’s excellent lyrics add so much class that it makes it hard for other bands on the bill to compete. And the muted trumpet sent shivers down my spine!
— Tess Lotter, Sick Notes
Classic alt/indie songcraft and performance with nods to The Cure, Radiohead and The Libertines. Great stuff.
— NewIndieMusic
The band I’ve been waiting for.
— BBC Radio London
Glorious noise!
— Croydon FM

A bit more about us

After wandering London’s chartered streets four guys were drawn together by coincidence or fate, depending on your view dear listener, to make music with spine tingling melodies and meaningful lyrics. Our songs have been featured by BBC Radio London, Shoreditch Radio and the Joe Strummer Foundation for new music. So, relax, enjoy the music and, as Nietzsche says, don’t get upset by what is necessary ;)
