JAYA THE CAT
Jaya the Cat will take you out on a night out,and things will for sure get weird. You willdance, laugh, and sing along at the top of your lungs even if you really can’t sing. You willfind yourself tapping your foot and nodding your head although you’re “not really intoreggae, I’m a metal guy”. You will be happier than you thought you could be *. You willend up in places you didn’t even know existed. And somehow you’ll make it home safelywith your keys, phone and wallet intact. Jaya the Cat will leave glitter confetti on yourbedroom floor and take you out for breakfast. Or lunch, because, you know, breakfast willdefinitely be too early for anyone here.
Originating in Boston, Jaya the Cat promptly relocated to Amsterdam, and with a crew ofdiverse and international musicians continue perfecting the art of making the mostamazing musical cocktail possible to get you through this night and into the next one,with equal parts reggae, punk, and ska, a splash of electronics and a sprig of dub with ashot of whiskey on the side. In between a relentless touring schedule through clubs andfestivals across Europe and beyond, that is downright confusing they keep upconsidering what they get up to, they’ve recently spent a month in Berlin recording theirfifth studio full length album set to be released in November 2017. “A Good Day For TheDamned” continues the path the band has put itself on with their previous releases.Winding down city streets and across moonlit beaches, staggering past carnivals andcemeteries and drunken sunrises, come 15 new tales of heartbreak and joy, politicalconfusion and existential madness but in the end, overall optimism. The right concoctionto get you in the mood for what this night holds.
