IndiePulse Reviews: Fight For Love by Cat Dail
Cat Dail, internationally touring singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer has achieved prized awards from Billboard magazine, Musician magazine, the Independent Music Awards, and many more; she has released 6 albums on the Lucky Magnet recording label she founded.
Her recent album, released this past April titled Fight For Love, was produced, recorded & mixed by Teddy Kumpel and mastered by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound, has been proclaimed as “funky rockin soulful indie groove from a female point of view, deep pocket, velvety vox, firm spine”. Fight For Love is an album that comprises elements of Blues, Funk, Soul, Rock and Folk Music, Indie Music from talented musicians with broad range & big Love.
Fight For Love by Cat Dail is sultry, sexy and mysterious, drawing you into a mischievous mood. The slow and hypnotic draw of the first track “Can’t Buy Love” is both a love song and not a love song, the ambivalence of one trying to assert control over a spirit that is uncontrollable. “Player” then brings the heat in an acoustic and funk rhythm fest. “Catch Fire” is a song driven by Cat’s voice; the music lies in the background, then bursts forward in an eruption of soulful melody. The next track “Wonder Love” is a Rock infused track that has a defined wild side, like the other tracks, it does not overpower, but it does ensnare the senses. “Flow Zone” is a “poppish” track with dance moments, a fun mix for the senses that brings you up, then “She Can Fly” takes you on in cruise control, taking you sailing through in pleasure and passion, this album rounds out on the final track “Molly & Matchbox”, a seemingly simple ballad of devotion, yet creates the image of a perfect bond and perfect union, much like Cat Dail herself and the music she creates. Fight For Love is a beautiful and intellectually perfect album for today’s Indie Music Scene.
