Catfish and the Bottlemen announced they would be releasing a new album later this year, called The Ride. Soundcheck was the first single from this album and received controversial feedback from fans, but ultimately, the instrumental is insane and no one can deny that.
The next single, 7, has been hugely anticipated by fans since previews were released and the band began playing the track one tour and acoustically at events.
Starting with an amazing bass line before Van McCann’s soulful voice graces the lyrics “Larry call a load of smoke in // I wanna lose a couple days”. A thrumming riff and pulsating drum beat accompanies the chorus, which I’m certain every Catfish fan has been singing since they first heard the track.
It’s impossible not to get lost in the powerful instrumental and after a few more plays, I’ll love it even more but right now, I’m still a fan of the acoustic performances purely for the passion.
The Ride is available to pre-order now.
