Two Creation Myths is the new 7” from Tasmanian exploratory post-punk duo the Native Cats — singer and synth operator Chloe Alison Escott, bassist Julian Teakle — out on 10 February on Rough Skies Records to commemorate the conclusion of the band’s first 12-year cycle and the commencement of their next one.
A further intensification and advancement from their explosive 2018 releases John Sharp Toro and Spiro Scratch. “Run with the Roses” is the singer at her most revealing and her most evasive. A bass line like an eighteen-wheeler barrelling down the highway, six searing verses from a woman standing defiantly between the lanes. “Sanremo” is a slow roll down a jagged-edged rainbow, a retelling of a pivotal moment in early Italian pop music history, a reminder that invincibility is a joy that implies a threat. A pair of songs that sharpen selected arrows of the past and load them into the bow of the present.
