Sydney’s Catcall (aka Catherine Kelleher) has given us first dibs on her new video for ‘Satellites’, another stunning bit of “nostalgia-tinged astral pop” from protracted debut The Warmest Place. It’s been directed by SPOD – they guy behind recent videos by Donny Benet, Art vs Science and Richard In Your Mind – and sees him add lens flare to his rapidly expanding bag of tricks. The Warmest Place is due out through Ivy League in February.

Is this the same Catcall who won the Mess and Noise Poll for best single of 2010?


mud  said about 3 years ago:

Yes.


Coz  said about 3 years ago:

This song really doesn't appeal to me at all, it sounds very derivative of what's been around for the last few years, like Ladyhawke with a twinge of Cut Copy thrown in.

I don't even typically dislike derivative music as long as it's done well, but this is a big pile of meh.

i don't dislike it as much as i hate 'swimming pool'


__v  said about 3 years ago:

It makes me happy. I want to listen to it in the car at about 5.45pm on the way back from the beach. Is that so wrong?

Nobody said it was wrong, just mediocre.

If liking this song is wrong, I don't want to be right.

Also, Swimming Pool:

8.9


Xhosas  said about 3 years ago:

Great chorus


poprocks96  said about 3 years ago:

I can't wait to hear this based on how much I loved Swimming Pool.

I like her signature ''huh!''


nishiki  said about 3 years ago:

i don't know what's wrong with me. i like pop but this sounds terrible. it has this strange middling feel to it. video is nice i guess.


__v  said about 3 years ago:

is there a place to buy/download this that isn't itunes?


untold/animals  said about 3 years ago:

It was alright. I'll listen again later. It'll probably go down a treat on Triple J.


LaxCharisma  said about 3 years ago:

I got distracted halfway through and turned it off....I'd say thats my problem not the song itself.


untold/animals  said about 3 years ago:

Cool idea for a clip though!

@triplejmorning just tweeted the video.


untold/animals  said about 3 years ago:

Heh. I like what Catcall is capable of but her ambitions for her music are not the same as what I like about her.


poprocks96  said about 3 years ago:

I enjoyed it. Good work, Catcall.

Can't decide if i like or not, Was this done/written by that Damn arms dude again?


djgoogle  said about 3 years ago:

RoastOxCrisps  said about 3 years ago:

this is like a tasty pancake with blueberry syrup. not maple though.


IronMic  said about 3 years ago:

it's no swimming pool. sounds like your average jjj fodder.


__v  said about 3 years ago:

I've road tested this single pretty extensively in the last couple of days. I still think it's a really neat pop song. For best results place an arm out of window while driving.

As a self-loathing experiment I listened to Triple J for a bit yesterday afternoon to see if this was in fact typical JJJ fodder, and can confirm that out of the 4.5 songs I was able to listen to none were remotely as good as Satellites.

Looking forward to the album.


tugboat  said about 3 years ago:

You should call to request it on JJJ..

fakes voice of a teenage girl OH HAI ROSIE! THIS IS TAAAALYAH FROM BERWICK!!!!! I WANT TO HERE SATELLITES BY CATCALL!!!!


__v  said about 3 years ago:

I'm disappointed that you can tell that I am not a genuine teenage girl tugboat. Where did I go wrong?

'I Could Never Be Lanie Lane'
