It’s hard to miss GRAMMIES’ tight, musical connection in a video like this. With the ability to swing from catchy hooks to lightning-fast, complex rhythms, there’s never a dull moment with these guys.
And the duo definitely showcases this dynamic ability in “Cat Call.” Throughout the song, they build tension with erratic patterns of quick notes that break into catchy rhythms to switch things up. At one point, Noah Bernstein builds a dense layer of saxophone notes that he loops into a frenzy before the duo suddenly breaks back into a smooth groove. Between their speed, and complex musicianship, it’s hard to believe all this music comes from two people.
“Cat Call” was recorded before a live audience March 8th, 2014 at Banana Stand in Portland, OR and features GRAMMIES. This video features footage from camera operators Michael McInerney, Darren Hartman, Tyler Bertram, and Alexei Shishkin and was directed by Michael McInerney and edited by Nick Gattman. Audio for this video recorded by Adam Harney, mixed by Adam Harney, and mastered by Chris Vita.
