“The Cat (Extended Version),” by The Essence

cat.jpgThere’s something about The Essence that has me always defending them in my heart. An unstudied ear might consider them just a ripoff of the Cure, due to the strikingly familiar lead vocals, but I think there’s something a little more rocking here. The sounds are fuller and everything seems a little less delicate.

This particular track has a hint of the sounds that make the New Model Army and U2 songs of the same era so good. Once again, we learn of an upcoming re-release from Myspace. Cherry Red’s putting it out.

The Essence,”The Cat (Extended Version),” from The Cat EP on Midnight Music (1986)
