about

Cat and Fox Minneapolis, Minnesota

Cat and Fox is the collision of songwriters and guitarists Thea Sass-Ainsworth and Sierra Corneil. Drawing on the dark corners of rock and the tenderness of jazz, they create hauntingly progressive soundscapes driven by distorted guitar riffs. The powerful duo found their rhythmic center with drummer Ollie Moltaji of Gospel Gossip and bassist Jimmy Arroyo Roppo. ... more

Track Name: If I'm Honest
I'm not an honest person, but for you I'll lie a little better—compose a careful narrative, so that you will love me more. It's all in our technologies, the funny thing about this distance—it's almost like it's poetry to be so close and never know you.
So I'll fall asleep on your shoulder, in the backseat of your car. Wake up, leave, and forget to say that—I will always love you more.
Number 7 Camels in my upper left pocket, told you that I don't smoke, but I'm sure that you're not watching me. You're sitting at a table, drinking cheap beer with some girls I don't know—I tried to take your picture, but it's clear that you're not interested.
Then I'd fall asleep on your shoulder, in the backseat of your car. Wake up, leave, forget to say that—I will always love you more than her. I will always love you more than her.
Track Name: Constellations
Give us what you've got, we're plotting a map of the constellations. I'm feeling so strongly that this will turn out wrong again, like it always seems to. You hold back my fears, and I'd like to think that maybe I could hold back yours, too—but the weatherman is wrong for the 100th time—Houston, we have a problem. Oh, I feel it coming on.
We're plotting a map of the constellations, and can we just hold on while we discover them slowly? There's so much we haven't seen, so tell me what you want from me.
Made me bite my tongue because I've been wrong as long as I can remember. The innocence is gone, but I'm still building up my case against these feelings of mine. It seems that you are fighting off your feelings too—things are going wrong for the hundredth time, it never seems to turn out right.
Oh, I feel it coming on.
We're plotting a map of the constellations. Oh, can we just hold on while we discover them slowly? There's so much we haven't seen, so tell me what you want from me.
Tell me what you want from me. What do you want from me?
Track Name: Seventh Circle Beach House
Do you remember where we used to live, in that old house, by the ocean? Do you remember? Do you remember?
The smell of salt and smoke on the wind, the sound of summer seeping in through August, to December. You were sitting in that old time bar, drinking champagne, eating caviar, you were a rich man. Or at least that's what I thought you were—because the serpents were hissing in your ears, they're speaking in tongues. I couldn't understand a word of anything you said, from then on.
Well are you scared tonight? Hold back hair tonight. Climb the stairs tonight. Back to the house where we used to live.
All the vampire hiding in the dark of the cemetery, knew just how to get the best of everything you had to offer. We fought with them a little bit but you always seemed to give in to their demands—and by god they had a lot of them. I'm so tired of trying to convince you of all the things that are not true—I give up fighting. I thought I saw you dying.
Well are you scared tonight? Hold back hair tonight. Climb the stairs tonight. Back to the house where we used to live.
Well are you scared? Are you scared? Are you scared?
Back to the place where we used to live.
Track Name: Building From the Ghosts Up
If I could fix this, I would build it from the ghosts up.
Then maybe we'd have enough left for the two of us.
And someday I'll write you back.
But now every memory fades to the bones of our cold winters together.
You hit me with goodbye—you hit me with goodbye.
Goodbye.
