Sexcat prowl onto the scene with a big R&B/dance sound
Over the weekend I had a chance to catch Sexcat at Clubhouse Jager, and was taken aback by what a huge sound was being pumped by of this new band. Walking up to the show, the group's R&B beats and lead singer Hannah von der Hoff's smokey voice pierced the air for several blocks surrounding the venue, and by the time I got to Jager's back patio I had to get a closer look at just who or what was creating such scintillating music on stage.
One surprising element of Sexcat is that they're an honest-to-god new band, not just some reformation of existing Twin Cities musicians, at least as far as co-frontwomen von der Hoff and Megan Charles are concerned; Baltimore transplant Garrett Neal is a familiar face in the indie rock scene and most recently played in Fake Places, but Sexcat is a different twist for him.
