About

Known for their uncanny ability to craft original tunes while borrowing from the golden age of rock ’n’ roll, Fractal Cat is a breed unto themselves. Combining sounds like country, soul, and psychedelia with mystical and socially conscious lyrics, this five-piece can’t sit still in a genre. Which gets audiences pretty excited too.

Encapsulating their sonic brilliance and swagger of decades past, the band released The Tower (2017) at Baltimore's WTMD Radio to a live studio audience–an appropriate move for their third album, consisting of all-original material. That station also named “Tryptide” from the band’s previous album Lovingkind one of the top 14 Baltimore songs of 2014. In 2016, Fractal Cat was featured in the “Maryland Music” documentary presented by Maryland Public Television. The group and its side projects have performed at many clubs and festivals in the Baltimore region and beyond, sharing bills with local, regional, and national acts of all stripes. 

With The Tower being distributed through renowned international distributor The Orchard, and an eastern U.S. tour under their belts, Fractal Cat is on their way.

Catch them on a stage near you...and freak out in a good way.

Press Quotes

Baltimore’s premiere psychedelic band.
— BmoreArt.com
From the kickoff song ‘Be Careful What You Dream,’ a rocking slice of foot propellant, to the epic spaced-out ‘Streets Are Burning,’ the new album [The Tower] evokes both the old, like the Beatles and other British Invaders from the 1960s, and the new, like My Morning Jacket.
— Baltimore Sun
[Fractal Cat’s] energetic and surreal sound offers urgent calls to trust your intuition, spread love, and give peace a chance.
— Baltimore Magazine
Fractal Cat [creates] a distinctly late Beatles-esque flavor with their very own twist of psychedelic juice.
— Appalachian Jamwich magazine
Fractal Cat plays up hints of Pink Floyd and post-Beatlemania inspiration.
— WLOY Loyola Radio
“No doubt we can expect much more from this talented cabal of Maryland musicians.”
— Washington Times
As fun as it is pleasant, as expansive as it is simple, Lovingkind makes no apologies for being what it is. And what it is is a fantastic showcase for a fantastic band.
— Frederick News-Post
[Some Angel] is one of the best songs composed in any genre or era—bar none.
— Inside World Music
