Shitty Interview No.115
Today it is a pleasure to bring you ‘Shitty Interview No.115’ with burgeoning Sydney pop duo CAT & CALMELL & celebrate the release of their hotly anticipated debut EP ‘Life Of Mine’. The woozy 8 track collection touches on everything from the environmental crisis & personal toxicity, to relationship drama & learning how to face the repercussions of their actions after behaving in youthful, reckless abandon.
“This EP is so special to us because it’s been such a long time coming. It encapsulates a time in our lives that was full of a lot of excitement but also a lot of uncertainty, it’s such a time stamp of our slightly younger & slightly more reckless days. a lot of the songs on this EP were written nearly 2 years ago & it’s so nice to see where we were & where we came from both in terms of our music & our headspace back then, so please enjoy our first ever little baby.”
