Stargazing electro-pop producer Joshua Teicher has a nack for adopting quirky characters and embodying their alternate traits. Catalysed from the art of the enigmatic alter egos of Bowie, Josh The Cat propels ‘90s pop, naughties production and futuristic ideals through a funky dance portal to the here and now. Since returning to Melbourne in 2017 after a five-year stint living and producing in Berlin, Josh released his debut EP Happiness to solid reviews at home and abroad. Now the fully fledged feline moniker is excited to reveal the first taste of his next instalment, with new single ‘I’ll Remember You’ as well as announce a pair of cosy single launch shows in Sydney and Melbourne over the coming months.
Josh The Cat’s self-produced new single brings together his gentle personality with his bold and refined production and songwriting skills, creating an addictive, bittersweet earworm of shimmering nostalgic pop, as though Beck were fronting a Pharrell jam. From dreamy and sparse beginnings centred by Josh the Cat’s crisp voice and underpinned by super-funky bass guitar, ‘I’ll Remember You’ blooms and blooms again with each chorus into a kaleidoscopic vision of warm strings and sparkly synths and glock, propelled by irresistibly punchy drums leading to a cascading sax solo.
“I wanted to write a going out song. A song for house parties and long drives. The kind of guilty pop song you sneak into a mixtape that just gives you that special feeling. I’ve always loved those nostalgic tracks like Return of the Mack by Mark Morrison, Teardrops by Womack & Womack and Michael Jackson’s Remember The Time - they’re kinda like dancefloor ballads, if there were such a thing.”
“In the production I was aiming for that late 90s/early 2000s pop sound. So when it came time to mix the track, I thought of my friend Josh Abrahams (remember Totally Addicted to Bass). He put me onto a mysterious person at the end of a phone line who went by the name Juzmo (Justin Tresidder). When Josh told me that he had worked on Holly Valance’s classic Kiss Kiss I knew that this was the right person for the job.” – Josh The Cat
Mixed by Justin Tresidder (Macy Gray, Wolfmother, Daniel Merriweather, Delta Goodrem, Operator Please, Holly Valance), mastered by Lachlan Carrick at Moose Mastering (Ainslie Wills, Gotye, Saatsuma, Miami Horror, Nai Palm) and recorded across Berlin, Melbourne and Alice Springs, ‘I’ll Remember You’ will drop Friday 17 August and will launch soon after with a bunch of celebrations at The Gaso Upstairs with full band debut in Melbourne featuring members of The Cat Empire & Meg Mac.
