Baltimore’s Fractal Cat writes and performs music influenced by the classic decades of rock ‘n’ roll, from Buddy Holly to Smokey Robinson to Syd Barrett. As a seven-piece cosmic rock ‘n’ roll band with horns and strings, or as an acoustic trio, the band combines multipart harmonies with lyrical themes combining social commentary and mysticism. The song “Tryptide,” from the album Lovingkind, was named by WTMD Radio’s Sam Sessa as one of the top 14 Baltimore songs of 2014. Fractal Cat recently completed its third album of all-original material. The Tower drops in early 2017.
