Martha Zed is the Cat’s Meow with “Cat Song”

Pop music with a gangster grunge heart and lyrics that explore themes of despair, paranoia and the absurdity of life, Martha Zed’s musical output can best described as the ramblings of a reckless mind, consumed with curiosity for the world around her and a relentless desire to express her indefinable inner life in song. 

Debut single, “Cat Song,” came to Zed while she was playing guitar and looking at her own feline friend. There’s a certain vulnerability that comes along with a relationship with an animal, and maybe that’s why we love them as much as we do – not because of the unconditionality of their love (a sentiment spoken about dogs in particular) – but because we can’t help but just be ourselves with our pets. That shameless co-existence is pretty liberating.
