EP Review: Catgod – ‘Heartbeat In My Hand’

Share Button

If it’s genre-defying fusions of sounds you’re after, then Oxford band Catgod may be just what you’re looking for. Amalgamating influences from traditional folk and indie rock to trip hop and psychedelia, their new EP Heartbeat In My Hand is a captivating union of sounds.

From the delicate, twinkling melodies and soaring emotive power of Cat Marriot’s vocals in the opening title track, to the more abstract fusion of musical layers and glitchy beats on ‘Keep My Promises’, each track oozes its own unique majesty.

Continuing with a sweeping, emotion-strewn grace, ‘Let Go’ is a stirring, heartfelt ballad, once again showcasing the subtle power of the mesmerising interplay of Cat and brother Robin’s vocals together. EP closer, ‘Owing You’, on the other hand, is brother Robin’s moment to shine; his deep, spoken-word tales of love and loss set to a backdrop of rich, cinematic instrumentation will enthral the ears on first listen.

Proving themselves beyond limitations, with this exquisite, eclectic collection of tracks, Catgod have revealed their far-reaching musical skill and innovative imagination in creating something that’s entirely their own.
Heartbeat In My Hand, the upcoming EP from Catgod, is out 22nd June.
