Started as a bedroom project in Oakland, to try and encapsulate her experience as a queer mixed-race multi-instrumentalist, producer and dancer Cat Mahatta creates collaborative electro-pop and innovative performance art. Having previously wowed our ears with her last single ‘Barely’, she’s now returned with a spellbinding new offering.
An anthemic message to the patriarchal powers that be, ‘Hymn To Dudes’ drips with glitchy beats alongside Mahatta’s swirling, sparkling vocals, creating a glistening slice of alt-pop, oozing a poignant majesty and sweeping splendour.
Accompanied by an artfully choreographed and beautifully thought-provoking video that portrays a mystical sleepover in which Cat is inducted into a coven of Feminist Art Goddesses, ‘Hymn To Dudes’ offers a dreamily bewitching electro soundscape filled with an empowering spirit that we need now more than ever.
Of the track, Mahatta expands:
“‘Hymn to Dudes’ is a message to everyone who’s ever underestimated, belittled, or oppressed me and my global community; it empowers us and reminds us that we have permission not to care what they or anyone else thinks of us.”
