Cat’s Eyes Treasure House (RAF)

Cat’s Eyes, the project of The Horrors’ Faris Badwan and Rachel Zeffira, is an exploration in understated sound. Treasure House revolves around subtle strings and spooky organs, turning the focus toward a complimentary vocal volley: Zeffira’s soaring chimes and Badwan’s smooth rumble. There are a couple of out-of-place songs: the handclap-driven “Be Careful Where You Park” and the strident “Standoff.” The rest, however, are quiet and gentle; see the swinging “Drag” and the pulsing “Missing Hour.”

Watch the video for “Drag” via Pitchfork.
