Having previously charmed crowds at Truck Festival, Cornbury Festival and many Sofar Sounds showcases, as well as receiving praise from the likes of Tom Robinson and Lauren Laverne on BBC 6 Music, Oxford band Catgod have now followed the success of last single ‘Keep My Promises’ with an utterly immersive new offering. Lead by sibling duo Catherine Marriott and Robin Christensen-Marriott, the band fuse together an eclectic array of sounds to create something simply captivating.
Inspired by the turbulent feelings of mistrust in a relationship, ‘Sleep In’ flows with the sweeping grandeur of Catherine’s folk-strewn flute melodies alongside sparkling harmonies and a completely bewitching delicate musicality. Oozing a soaring emotion-strewn splendour, it’s an utterly unique and instantly alluring fusion of sounds. Of the track, the band explain:
“It’s about the turbulent feelings you have in a relationship where you don’t quite trust the other person. It’s about wanting to stay in bed with them all day but also having nightmares about them with other people.”
Now, accompanied by a beautifully shot video filled with dreamy pastoral images to match the spellbinding musicality of the track, ‘Sleep In’ showcases all there is to love about this band, and marks them out as truly innovative masters of their craft.
