The melodies on Black Cat John Brown are intense. The mix of music styles presented on the album is experimental, and at times, it’s hard to decipher what instruments and electronic sounds are being used.

Each song on the album has a distinct style. The only commonality among the songs is a slight punk edge.

The title track, gained popularity unexpectedly when a recorded, impromptu dressing room performance of the song received over 320,000 hits on YouTube this past year. The song was then featured on “Grey’s Anatomy,” giving the band even more exposure.
