EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Catcher – “Comparing Saviors and Friends”
Just days before the end of 2021, NYC post-punk outfit Catcher debut their brand new single entitled “Comparing Saviors and Friends” right here on New England Sounds. Ramping up with sludge-y bass and frenetic guitar chords, accompanied by vocalist Austin Eichler’s deep-seated drawl. The single is regarded as one of the first tracks they’d written with the genesis of the band, and comes alongside a music video they made themselves.
Speaking about the song drummer Wilson Chestney comments – “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. 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.”
Catcher plan to ring in 2022 with a gig with Hello Mary at Mercury Lounge on Sunday, January 2, 2022. More information and tickets are available here.
