Cougar’s instrumental arrangements fall somewhere between Four Tet, Fugazi, and Nick Drake’s guitar work, albeit optimistic as opposed to morose.

The band’s singular sound is rooted in a keen sensibility of form and texture, more in line with sample-based music and modern classical than indie rock – which isn’t to say this is rock-as-academia – Cougar also invoke the roaring riff monster, the fist-in-the-air, anthemic head-banger to which so many groups give only an ironic nod. The debut album Law mixed with John McEntire of Tortoise.
‘Melodically lush, rhythmically compelling…gloriously precise and urgent.’ – The Wire Magazin. D/B Artist Feature: https://www.digitalinberlin.de/cougar LIVE @ Privatclub c/o Weltrestaurant Markthalle / Pücklerstrasse 34 / 10997 Berlin. Highly Recommeded Event!

COUGAR / Patriot EPK

Cougar’s second album, the forthcoming Patriot (August 17th on Counter), is an aggressive, narrative affair that sees the band reach even greater extremes than on Law. The epic, sparkling counterpoint of the first record crops up, but Patriot firmly establishes itself as a different music shredding the lines between electronic, rock and modern, one that never forgets to pay allegiance to the hook. If an album of new music raises the question, “What kind of band IS this?” then perhaps the artist is doing their job. Urgent, captivating and strangely moving: emergency rock.
