Friday Tonic: Peter Cat Recording Co.

9 Aug 2019

The ever-evolving band takes in gypsy jazz, psychedelic cabaret, ballroom waltzes, epic space disco, bossa supernova and uneasy listening.

Formed in New Delhi around 2010 by the crooner Suryakant Sawhney, Peter Cat Recording Co. is a group that’s mutated with each album, shedding members and accruing more.

For Peter Cat Recording Co., latest album Bismillah is their philosophy of sound: a collage of ideas rooted both in the past as well as the present.

It is a movement towards everything that will come next, documenting the lives they live, think and dream through music.

They are, probably, the best band you’ve never heard.
