Catcher is a band that will demand your attention. The New York City based six piece have this wonderfully jangly and noisy take on post punk. Their latest single, "Behind a Bleeding Heart," is a great example of that. While a lot of NYC based post punk these days tends to be of the upbeat, dance friendly variety, "Behind a Bleeding Heart" is discordant and noisy. This is putting the punk back in noise punk and adding more than enough No Wave noise. That's not to say that Catcher aren't dance friendly. This song is relatively dance friendly... in it's own little way. It's this odd little duality of pushing you away while drawing you in that creates the hypnotic swirl that is "Behind a Bleeding Heart," and why we think you're going to love this.
You can listen to "Behind a Bleeding Heart" below. The Fat of a Broken Heart is due out February 18. For more on Catcher, check out the band's website.
