Cathedral Bells Share “Undertow”
New single out May 29th digitally on BIRTHDIY
They say you can’t go home again, but for Matt Messore it took returning to his hometown of Cassadaga, Florida to discover a new path forward. After traveling across the country, Messore pursued his DIY bedroom pop leanings working as Cathedral Bells. Releasing their debut album Velvet Spirit on vinyl and digitally via Good Eye Records on March 6th.
Following the release of a debut, self-titled EP at the start of 2019, the band earned early praise from the likes of The Line Of Best Fit, Clash Magazine and FLOOD, drawing comparisons to DIIV, Chromatics and The Cure.
Cathedral Bells have now released their new single “Undertow”. This shimmering new track charms from the moment the song begins. Hypnotizing hooks cascade over this dreamy and vivacious shoegaze hit. Hazy vocals enticing the flow of this highly melodic, creative arrangement.
“This track has actually been in the works for a few years. I imagined a riff that would be played on a 12 string acoustic guitar, and I went from there, working and creating what became “undertow”. I envisioned layered vocals for this song, kind of a high and low melody. It all came together when I asked Kim Weldin of the band “tape waves” to do guest vocals for the track. The dreamy aspect of her voice added exactly what I wanted in order to finish the song”
