Faris Badwan, vocalist for acclaimed outfit The Horrors has unveiled a new project, a duo with Rachel Zeffira, a Canadian opera soprano and classical multi-instrumentalist based in London. Unlike the goth/punk of his other band, Cat's Eyes promises a symphonic throwback to 60s girl-pop groups. Cat's Eyes first live appearance took place in December, amid some secrecy, at St Peter's in the Vatican, where they performed a reworked version of their song "I Knew It Was Over" during an afternoon mass attended by several high-ranking cardinals.

The band's debut EP, Broken Glass, is due out February 28, 2011 and it will be followed by their self-titled debut on May 3, 2011.
