Hear Bad Bad Song
From Katray - Red Ruby Calling - Side A - The Hunted
New Katray Album - Free Digital Downloads
Katrays music virtually trickles in and slowly grabs you.
Everything sort of melds together, into one mellow rebellion of sounds.
Lou Reed meets Margo Timmins.
VUE WEEKLY Edmonton
One cannot help but draw parallels to Canadian legend Neil Young or even Bob Dylan.
Katray was formed back in 2000 and has had some remarkable musical experiences,
including buying a school bus and transforming it into a mobile home.
With the mobile music-mobile intact, the duo has darted across Canada for eight years,
performing everywhere and anywhere they can. Wal-Mart parking lots, art galleries
and even in-bus performances have seen the likes of two humble,
musical partners embarking on a journey of healing through chords and choruses.
With a certainly independent spirit, KATRAY has cornered a ballistic
yet subdued epic sound into an acoustronic headlock.
Basically, KATRAY is a sexy hot call.
Katray is what you should listen to when you want to experience
Picasso and Jack Kerouac in music form.
Edge Magazine - Prince George
Their sound is very reminiscent of early ''90''s psychedelic, acoustic rock bands
like Jesus and Mary Chain and the Meat Puppets.This is not a bad thing.
oMega - Kamloops BC
The album slowly screams through a journey of discontent with the status quo and
of hope for an end to the creative corruption ever so obvious in mainstream art.
