Album Review: Cat Converters / Teenage Warpaint - Frozen Folk / Magic Fight (Split EP)

Oakland based Frozen Folk and Magic Fight, (a band who recently relocated to Portland via the Bay Area), effortlessly blends their different backgrounds within their split EP, Cat Converters / Teenage Warpaint, through soul-penetrating harmonies with tumbling reverb that creates a final product that is out of this world!

Teenage Warpaint is sweetly grungy, as a simple harp-esque line leads into laidback soulful vocals with rising cadences that may induce inadvertant head bobbing. Vibes reminiscent of Bastille and Passion Pit stir up charmingly warbled feelings stocked with smiles from the song Barcelona, which is complete with piano overtones and rolling drumbeats.

Things get a bit more experimental in Cat Converters as the vocals get taken up a notch, while the guitars go for a long breezy drive on the coast. The 4-song EP concludes with a slightly silly track called Eggs and Marrowbone that sounds as wild as the title promises. Both bands are coolly confident and clearly talented. We can only hope for more future collabs from these two indie powerhouses. - Kat Collins
