+ Waste Of Paint + Jack Conman £6 advance
Patience is a virtue often overlooked in music. Whilst the true story of many artists involves years of learning their craft we much prefer the idea of the instant genius, inspired lightning bolt style with the perfect song.
Cattle & Cane’s Joseph Hammill has spent much of his life kicking against convention, so it is little surprise that he refuses to build an alternative history for how his band, Cattle & Cane, took five years from feted performances in their Middlesbrough hometown and 2010’s T In The Park via support from the BBC Introducing team to produce their debut album, ‘Home’.
The intricate drive of opener ‘Skies’, blending War on Drugs licks to a rousing dual vocal chorus.The album features plenty of potential singalong moments, close your eyes and you can well imagine a festival field jumping in unison to ‘Sold My Soul’ or lead single, ‘Come Home’, a perfect example of the band’s abilities to meld soaring choruses and delicate melodies to everyman lyrics that swerve cliché to create a sense of community and shared experience.
“Surely one of the bands to watch out for in 2015” – Sunday Brunch, Channel 4
“We found ourselves humming incessantly to the gloriously addictive ‘Sold My Soul’ – infectious!” – Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music
