CITIES The Cat Empire Project – This project is somewhere in between a tribute to our own city and an experiment in sounds that we’ve found abroad. The approach to this record was far less precious than it was for our debut and two shoes. It was a kind of surprise record we almost didn’t expect to make. We wrote the material very quickly, and had an excellent and robust few weeks recording it. The record is in some ways serious and in some ways stupendous. There are ethnics, locals, sad songs, adventure songs, musical chorus’, screamers, and a collection of soul references

The First instrumental song by The cat empire 'Jungle' opens with a catchy drum beat and the a sequence of brass instruments with the electric guitar in the back ground playing no riff just randomly playing, But really well. Lyrics - 7 Overall the lyrics aren't brilliant, I mean there good but not special. With the band having two singers/songwriters the lyrics on the album are a blend of the two different artists songwriting skills. Felix Riebl really introduces an australasian voice to the band and Harry Angus brings a fair urban street voice
