TO end a fantastic year on a high, our British boys, Catfish and The Bottlemen, will release their third single – a follow up from September’s Rango – called Pacifier.
These Llandudno lads have already made a name for themselves for their previous work – Homesick and Rango – with the likes of NME, Q Magazine and Clash alongside Radio 1, 6Music and XFM praising them.
Pacifier welcomes the likes of tabloids like The Sun into that equation as they trumpet: “Frontman Van McCann breathes convinving vulnerability into his performance.”
Pacifier is set to drop through Communion Records on December 9, 2013 as the third release from the up-and-coming band.
McCann was inspired to write the song because of a close friend who lost her mother at the age on 13.
Says McCann: “I have a weird view on death, where I just shut it out and move on quick, don’t think about it because it’s inevitable. She was trying to get it through to me that there’s more to it than my experience, and I never knew how it felt, because it won’t ever happen to me.”
McCann powerfully expresses his true lyrics at full volume through his rough voice alongside the uplifting guitar breaks and electric bass.
Every person, young or old, will relate to the new single in one way or another. McCann has hit the nail on the head with his words: something he does within every song.
Catfish and the Bottlemen are on tour until next week at Nottingham, Bristol, Exeter and Brighton.
