This is an archive of the band profile for Catscans.

Out of the ashes of We Sell Seashells - Leeds based 4-piece Catscans unexpectedly evolved in 2011. Months of rigorous trials saw Catscans explode into dynamic and volatile waveforms, rendering sonic phrases and frequencies comparable to Three Trapped Tigers, Gallops and Vessels. Subsequent test results have fused into a raucous live spectacle.

The organisms known as Catscans comprise the following shapes: Jonny on guitar, vocals and discord; Chrissie on violiola, nyckelharpa and wanderings; Mike on guitars and spookiness; Jake on drums and hoots; and Robot-bass on robot-bass. Their debut EP was released in September 2011, to cries of delight and shudders of confusion.
