Felix Riebl – Black Room

Felix Riebl is the frontman of Australia’s The Cat Empire. He released two solo albums: Into The Rain (2011) and Paper Doors (2016). Also, he collaborated with bandmate Ollie McGill and the Marliya choir to form Spinifex Gum. They released two studio albums as well.

New solo material is on its way. Riebl just announced a new EP, Black Room White Walls, is set for release on 21 August. He said the EP takes inspiration from a very diverse range of artists, including New Order and Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninoff. Black Room is the set’s first single. The track’s alt-rock sound differs largely to the funk stylings typically associated with The Cat Empire.

β€œWith Black Room I wanted to write a song that hit people with a blast of something that was equal parts angst and positivity”, Riebl said in a statement. β€œI wanted something with no fat at all, the guitars and synth hooks direct, the sort of thing you can imagine a band playing at a big festival.”
