SHOWS ANNOUNCED IN SYDNEY l ADELAIDE l PERTH l MELBOURNE
Earlier this month, singer-songwriter Catherine Traicos announced news of her 6th album – to be released later this year. The first single from the album, Crashing, along with the video for the track is officially released today. Catherine says of the song:
Crashing just kind of presented itself to me mid solo jam late at night as songs often do. Mostly they are forgotten or just fill up my phone until I delete them to make space for more. I remember reading somewhere that Duke Ellington never wrote anything down, saying that the good songs will stick around.
And this song did just that. Everywhere I went over the next few days it would nudge me and prod me to go home and finish it. There was a moment when it was just “now or never” and I jumped on a bus, abandoning my commitment that day in favour of completing the song. It was almost as if had I not gone home and finished it then, I would have lost it forever.
The video for Crashing is made by Andrew Watson (The Man Who Wasn’t There, Slow Dissolve, waywardbreed). The shooting took place over a single evening and was experimental and involved many sparklers and bright shiny lights. We smashed, we boiled, we burned, we projected, and we danced late at night in a freezing park surrounded by curious possums. It was quite a night.
Check out the video below.
Catherine Traicos is heading out for a run of shows in June to celebrate the release of Crashing. Full info below
