PREMIERE: The Cat Empire Return With 360° Video For Spicy New Mambo, ‘Ready Now’

Written by Emmy Mack on July 9, 2018

Get ready to shake your hips because The Cat Empire are back! The Aussie ska-jazz fusion masters have returned with another trademark brass-powered jam.

Say ~hello~ to ‘Ready Now’, a latin-infused toe-tapper packing a 360° music video featuring frontman Felix Riebl shaking his groove thang.

As Riebl describes, ‘Ready Now’ began as “an accidental one hand arpeggio on a keyboard with an obnoxious synth horn sound on”.

“It turned into a hard hitting and fairly epic sounding fanfare that sounds like a dark marching band in flight,” he explains. “Lyrically it’s full of frustration and conflict, but the music gives it an edge of joy.”

The arrival of ‘Ready Now’ comes ahead of The Cat Empire’s huge Aussie tour this September.

Experience the tune and music video in 360° below.
