Cat Dail – ‘Fight for Love’ EP
Sung straight from the heart and from personal experience, Cat Dail proves to be a deft storyteller with the insightful “Fight for Love EP”. Blues, soul, with a little bit of funk, the way the songs evolve gives them a gorgeous temperament. Perfectly balanced, the whole collection has a classic cool to it. By far the highlight comes from Cat Dail’s incredible vocals and poetic lyricism, which helps to tie everything together. Over the course of the collection a theme emerges, one that offers insight on the world, the ups and downs relationships can bring.
Easily the best track on the collection comes with the powerful opener “Can’t Buy Love”. Done with the utmost of care, the buildup feels downright excellent, allowing for sound that at times recalls a late 60s psychedelic aura to it. Gentler with its tact is the spacious quality of “Player” where the rhythms gain a toe-tapping fervor to them. Nimble drums add to the laid-back style of “Catch Fire” which has a playfulness to it. Dreamy glistening keyboards soar up into the heavens on the lovely “She Can Fly”. Letting things truly unfurl, “She Can Fly” lets the length work to its advantage, becoming ever more surreal. “Molly & Matchbox” concludes everything, allowing a little western twang into the mix tapping into a deep well of pure Americana.
With the utmost of care, Cat Dail embarks on a timeless journey on the powerful “Fight for Love EP”.

Indie Pulse Music Review:
By Joseph Timmons • May 12, 2018
Fight For Love by Cat Dail is sultry, sexy and mysterious, drawing you into a mischievous mood. The slow and hypnotic draw of the first track “Can’t Buy Love” is both a love song and not a love song, the ambivalence of one trying to assert control over a spirit that is uncontrollable. “Player” then brings the heat in an acoustic and funk rhythm fest. “Catch Fire” is a song driven by Cat’s voice; the music lies in the background, then bursts forward in an eruption of soulful melody. The next track “Wonder Love” is a Rock infused track that has a defined wild side, like the other tracks, it does not overpower, but it does ensnare the senses. “Flow Zone” is a “poppish” track with dance moments, a fun mix for the senses that brings you up, then “She Can Fly” takes you on in cruise control, taking you sailing through in pleasure and passion, this album rounds out on the final track “Molly & Matchbox”, a seemingly simple ballad of devotion, yet creates the image of a perfect bond and perfect union, much like Cat Dail herself and the music she creates. Fight For Love is a beautiful and intellectually perfect album for today’s Indie Music Scene. Read full review.
