Higher, CATBEAR tarafından mutlu ve akıcı playlistler için üretilmiş Indie Pop türünde bir parçadır. Parça CATBEAR etiketiyle 27.10.2023 tarihinde yayına girdi.
Step into the neon-lit realm of Higher with CATBEAR – aka Zoe and Sarah – as they revive the retro spirit of synthpop. This indie electronic meets synthpop gem will have you tapping your feet to the beat, with its pulsating synths, and driving drums. Zoe’s inventive, atmospheric production, and the irresistible charm of the duo’s distinctive sound converge, bringing you a nostalgic experience with a modern twist.
Higher transports you into the world of long phone conversations late into the night with a crush or lover. It’s a sultry anthem that harks back to a long-forgotten time before mobile phones and dating apps.
From Zoe: “I was thinking about how before video calls we had no visuals, just words and imagination, and how powerful it could be to hear just someone’s voice from many miles away. Without seeing someone your mind fills in the gaps and is capable of building intense thoughts and feelings.” Their music traverses the realms of synthpop, synthwave, electronic, and indie dance while carrying the essence of 80s icons like Depeche Mode and New Order. Higher has hints of CATBEAR’s hit track, In the Night and echoes the queer euphoria of Romy, the pulsating basslines of Robyn, the big synth-pop melodies of CHVRCHES and the emotive, sensual lyrics of Muna.
CATBEAR’s deep connection with their global fanbase, including their dedicated WhatsApp backstage community, fuels their creative passion. In the past year they have seen an outpouring of support and heartfelt comments and messages from fans worldwide, serving as a constant source of inspiration and motivation.
It’s been an incredible year for the duo; a UK tour supporting The Subways was followed by an invitation to play at The Great Escape festival in May, and with editorial backing from Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube/VEVO they reached the huge milestone of 1 million streams on Spotify in July. They’re currently immersed in crafting a new album scheduled for release in 2024. And with calls from fans and industry folk alike for shows in Europe and beyond, who knows where the next 12 months will take them.
