The sprawling, technicolour funk of Melbourne's The Cat Empire finds its way to Rio for the first time courtesy of a world tour in support of the group's latest album, Steal The Light. Rarely anything short of uplifting, the marching band stomp that underpins the record will feel perfectly at home in the land of the marchinha, suitably replete with sun-filled horn stabs and soaring singalong choruses.

The instant, sugary rush of album opener and first single 'Brighter Than Gold' is a good taste of what is to come on a record that conjures up the spirit of The Levellers (on 'Still Young') and yet wears its Latin influences proudly on its sleeve ('Like a Drum'). The lyrical content might not deal with much more than the somewhat adolescent themes of young love, life beyond the shackles of the nine-to-five grind and the less than revolutionary concept of escaping the interminable smartphone, but if it's a slice of tubthumping, pogo inducing funk'n'roll you are after, The Cat Empire can deliver it in spades.
