Dead Cat In A Bag are no strangers to the exploration of a wide range of genres. In Sad Dolls & Furious Flowers, they depict colourful cinematic and hallucinatory soundscapes that could easily be the soundtrack of a western movie set in years yet to come. The band's theatrical approach to music makes of each track a theater pièce in itself.
Boisterous while peacefully resting on the road of the old singsongwriting, they produce a modern one, boosted by electronics and non-traditional instruments. Yet, as old as the album's central themes: lost love, disillusionment, unkept promises dancing with anger, desire, beauty in a dystopic world touched by the hope of a brighter day. "How can people manage to face the day?" With an act of faith in the power of beauty. Sometimes personal and peculiar, looking for something true, Sad Dolls & Furious Flowers offers some sand from the Mexican desert, some snow from the Russian Steppe, a French perfume, a country & western waltz, and a dead cat with one life more to live.
