Catbells – 'Same as You'

Catbells – 'Same as You'

A unique artist who perfectly blends dreamy melancholic shoegaze with vibrant alt-pop overtones, Catbells captivates her listeners with soft hypnotic vocals, lush soundscapes, and moody melodies that capture her deep, heartfelt emotions in the most intimate of ways. With gorgeous vocals and a sound that drifts between sweet nostalgia and velvety sentiments, she’s become a truly innovative artist, and her new single is a perfect introduction to her ethereal pop sound.

A singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Catbells is a somewhat enigmatic, shy wallflower type, with her name itself being an alter-ego. Named after the popular hiking spot recited in the famous children's book The Tale of Mrs Tiggy-Winkle by Beatrix Potter, Catbells' cinematic music is influenced by the vast natural wild. Raised in New England, Catbells often revisits the times of her childhood in her music, where she reflects on fond memories of the seasons changing, swimming in the eastern lakes, canoeing down the river, and working on the family farm.

Catbells' latest single, ‘It's Not Hard’ explores deep-seated emotions and feelings of escapism in one's life. Catbells confides, " It's a song about that feeling of wanting to run away from all your problems and to be totally free from the past. Not looking back and not feeling the regret of the past. But ultimately, it's about also realizing it's not possible to really run away...when doing what you want to do is quite hard or even impossible but feeling like you want to do it is not hard at all."

With influences ranging from 60’s folk like Nico and Donovan to 90’s shoegaze artists including Mazzy Star, Catbells has combined the best of these genres into a potent fusion of lofi "sad girl" indie rock.

With new releases on the way, including the sweeping dream pop single of ‘Same As You’, which is billed as a new age ballad about longing for a lost love, there’s never been a better time to get acquainted with Catbells’ bright creative world.
