NYC post-punk band Catcher release their new single ‘Comparing Saviors and Friends’ this week and we’re delighted to be bringing you a first opportunity to see its video on Joyzine today. It’s a frentic, rampaging track that draws on their home city’s rich post-punk heritage along with echoes of their UK peers, particularly The Fall and turn of the century cult heores Ikara Colt. It’s the latest track to be taken from their forthcoming debut album, set for release in the new year.
“I think it’s safe to say it’s a single off our LP we’ve recorded that we feel captures our live energy and stands out as one of our more straightforward tracks,” explains drummer Wilson Chestney. “When Austin and I originally wrote and demo’d it out, we felt it was probably a little too poppy, but once we had the whole band play it their way for a proper recording, it ended up becoming one of our favorites.”
