After a couple of bubbling self-released tapes, Catnapp debuts on Monkeytown Records with this bold EP. Fear represents a real statement of intent from the Argentina-born, Berlin-based artist. These five tracks bring together the syrupy trap of Clams Casino, Kelela and Yaeji’s futuristic r ‘n’ b, energy ala MIA’s Arular and the detached amusement of Inga Copeland. Catnapp’s vocals may initially appear off-the-cuff, but she proves a focussed rapper/singer across Fear. Versatile, too - she can switch up her flow from mumbling shit-talk (‘Armed’) to achingly lovesick (‘Fade’) in the space between two tracks. FFX, Dabow and Bungalovv all guest.
