Ombre Melancholic, deep and staggering - a single track, that packs a punch my ears can't seem to recover from. This band embodies everything I love about post-rock.

about

If Anything Happens To The Cat Gent, Belgium

If Anything Happens To The Cat is a five-piece indie orchestra from Belgium. Their music is an unpredictable mix between post-rock, shoegaze and indie rock. Every song is a journey: through intertwining layers of guitars and synths, past flashes of vocals and guest instruments, often culminating into crushingly emotional climaxes. ... more

Track Name: Echo Park (BOS vinyl version)
You made it out ‘til summertime
I made it out ‘til June
But now the storm it catches up
There’s nothing left to do
but hold on to the ropes my love
Close your eyes again
The light’s too far away to see
Across the misty land

You felt like steering deeper out
I felt like dashing in
By now it’s much too late to leave
The ropes are wearing thin
I never prayed so hard for rain
While slamming on the keel
I felt the water rushing in
The sense of something real

And I will brave this storm for you
Until the sheer strake brakes
When dark sets in and summer fades
We’ll look for something new

In bodies of wood
We’ll conquer the flood
No fear of the tides
We cut loose and cast off

Did you see it happen
It was right in front of your eyes
I tried to save it all for you
And you still look surprised
I look like a battlefield
I’m swept from side to side
Cave in or dig a deeper hole
a place where I can hide

And I will build a ship for you
we’ll sail right out of town

Going down with the strength of the tides
wasn’t your plan, I know it never was
But fixing holes the size of the ship
isn’t an option when you’ve never lost
So when the waves started eating the deck
I kinda liked it, I must admit
For what it’s worth, this boat was never enough
To hold the both of us, as it did

And I will build a ship for you
we’ll sail right out of town
Track Name: Out and Into the Vast Again (ft. A Native Hundred)
It must have rung thirty times before he picked up the receiver
Voice like broke ribs he spits out a 'who's there?'
His brow; prodigiously furrowed even when sat untroubled
lightens now and turns itself inside out
His hope is a mewling fox cub sat tight in a tighter throat
'Outside... Out there?'
The answer comes like morning sun
'Aye, Shay. Aye.'
Shay contains himself. Replaces the receiver and returns to his book.
That night, just as the wine and sleep take him, he feels his blood finally warm again.
And he dreams of old friends.
One in particular; a friend who became a wife after a thousand shared breakfasts
A wife who bore and loved their child.
Now both hang vampyric each night in oil paintings.
Next a.m. Shay washes the shame from his eyes and the vinegar out his mouth
While loading his pack the ocelots in his amber eyes glide between mottles and his memories
step up and are alive once more.
The walk from the harbour to his grandfather's farm
'My numbers came in so praise Jesus, praise money!'
The smell of sweat and wilting wood anemones abound
In the hour before departure he sharpens his knife
You never knew back then, so he couldn't know now
Four hours he reckons, maybe half a day
Then he'd be stood at the door
His hand would be sliding up her neck, along her jaw and pushing the hair back over her ear
And then the kiss
But when he closes that third door behind him, it's scrawled on the wall
And there are no scents anymore
Just there, all it says is
"No one made it. Prank call."
