Feline were an English alternative rock/pop group formed in Camden, London in 1995. Their sound was described by journalist Mike Pattenden as "new goth", a mix of Eighties bands like Siouxsie and the Banshees and The Cure with contemporary acts like The Smashing Pumpkins. Guitarist Drew Richards added, "[but] you won’t catch us lying around on gravestones".
"They are very cool animals, self-possessed, and they’ve been potent mystical symbols throughout time", explained front-person Grog to the music industry trade press, "which we thought reflected the power of this band". Initially formed as a vehicle for Grog to record a solo album following the dissolution of her first band, Feline became a fully fledged band when musicians were recruited to perform with her. Grog herself sported a tattoo of the band’s logo on her shoulder.
Feline signed to a major-label record deal with Chrysalis Records and released their debut album, Save Your Face, in 1997. Despite receiving positive press from Music Week, NME and Kerrang!, the band were dropped after a few years as part of a company-wide roster clear out. The band members renamed themselves Ultraviolet in order to attract a second label deal before disbanding the project to focus on heavier rock music, becoming the enduring metal band Die So Fluid.
