CATS ON TREES is a France-based indie pop duo. In March 2018, they returned with NEON, a second album whose sonic ambition is obvious: « we're cultivating our love of piano melodies and of the organic, whilst mixing it up with a synthetic texture ». NEON is a testament to the dexterity of their pop, at once raw and crafted, immediate and thoughtful. The duo's strength: formidably simple pop, which earned them 220,000 album sales of their first eponymous album followed by more than 200 live shows.
