I stumbled across this band while creating the Wiretap Music monthly show calendar one lucky day in the Fall of 2010. Since then I’ve been listening to their recorded music whenever I feel the need to be taken away. After finally getting to see them live, I can say that I get just as much out of their live show as I do their recorded music. I am indeed hooked. What captures me the most about il gato is that their sounds come from an extremely visual and beautiful place, but at the same time the songs have this deep and dark edge that always warms my heart. I know, that sounds strange . But I love the dark stuff, and because I love it, it warms my heart! I also love pop music and il gato have a knack for bringing the two together. If this band existed somewhere besides Earth, I think they would be providing the soundscape of dark, baroque, and cinematic folk music to a daydream where you get handed ice cream and popcorn while watching circus freaks on stage and lovebirds in the park
