Cat’s Eyes – “I Knew It Was Over”

I love surprises. And Cat’s Eyes was one of those increasingly rare goooooood surprises. The duo of Rachel Zeffira, a Canadian opera soprano and classical multi-instrumentalist, and Faris Badwan, singer with THE HORRORS (godhead), do their take on Joe Meek’s attic pop, the Walker Brothers’ swoonsome “Archangel,” and the sinister lushness of Phil Spector.

This video is an exceedingly good sign. Guerilla videotaping in the Vatican! How’s THAT for rock n’ roll?  Zeffira plays an unfeasibly large organ, a choir provides conscience, and Faris sits glumly on a stool doing his best young Scott Walker. Yes and yes! Baited breath for everyone.
