New Audio: Introducing the 80s Synth Pop-Inspired Sound of Pekoe Cat

Pekoe Cat is the solo electro pop recording project of singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist Kyle Woolven. Interestingly, his latest single is the funky and sleekĀ Neon Indian-like, 80s synth pop inspired “Jungle Cop.” Centered around a wobbling bass line, shimmering and arpeggiated synths, an enormous, club-banging hook, a sultry vocal delivery and various found samples, the track is fueled by a hazy nostalgia. “I have a very vague memory of toddler me playing some game on NES where a guy with a motorcycle helmet goes around shooting up the city. That’s what inspired the song. I have no idea how accurate those memories are or if that game even exists. And I think I should be a little concerned if that’s the kind of thing I consider to me a fond memory. Either way, it’s the closest I’ve ever come to achieving the sound I was going for,” Woolven explains in press notes.
