While we’ve all been waiting for the follow-up to the Horrors’ surprisingly great Primary Colours, frontman Faris Badwan kept busy doing something else: He started a new group with opera singer and multi-instrumentalist Rachel Zeffira called Cat’s Eyes. The group reportedly takes an operatic approach to girl-pop, and that’s certainly proved in the above video of the group playing “I Knew It Was Over” in an awesome place: The Vatican. Seriously. The dude behind “Sheena Is a Parasite” played in the Vatican. Beautiful and majestic all around.
In addition, Cat’s Eyes have a debut album coming this spring via Polydor. The self-titled full-length is due on April 11 in the U.K. and May 3 in the states via Downtown. The group’s debut EP is due out on Feb 28, as well. Go to their website to learn more and download a free track.
