The sprawling, technicolour funk of Melbourne's The Cat Empire finds its way to São Paulo 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 provide a little wintertime therapy, with suitably 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 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.
