Since the birth of the label in 1997, FatCat has always had a solid engagement with material sent to us as demos. Where numerous labels will throw demos straight into the trash unopened, at FatCat we've always made an effort to listen and reply to every demo received. Numerous FatCat artists have been picked up having been discovered in this way (including Frightened Rabbit, The Twilight Sad, David Karsten Daniels, Welcome, Odonis Odonis, Get Back Guinozzi!, Silje Nes, Ensemble, Xinlisupreme, Songs Of Green Pheasant, Janek Schaefer - to name just a few), and it has always been really exciting to unexpectedly discover something great in this way. Just as when we started, this philosophy of keeping an ear to the ground and attempting to support good new creativity remains at the core of what we do. Read More


All demos received by FatCat are listened to and replied to. With the amount of demos we are currently receiving, we would prefer if you could send your best tracks rather than sending loads. If we like what we hear, then we will then get back to you and ask to hear more. Read More

YEAR 2012

’The Humming’ is the work of Croatian singer/songwriter Mirna Stanich and producer Martin Zietek originally from Warsaw. The Brighton-based duo consisting of Stanich and Mass Roman have drawn comparisons to Cocteau Twins and Talk Talk of the late 80s.

“The tracks were originally written and arranged mostly as folk songs, but the music has throughout the recording stages changed into a sound that crosses many genres. Drawing influences from American folk artists, electronic music, bluesy guitars and pop, the songs developed into a new sound. However, within the live set we include more electronics; echo coloured guitars and vocals float around vintage keyboard melodies and beats”. (Minor Sounds).

Their debut album "The Humming" was released in 2012 to critical acclaim.

Mirna Stanich has now relocated to Berlin in 2014 and is currently working on new material in collaboration with several different musicians.
