Sydney-based pop duo Cat & Calmell have made their return, dropping their new single Cry. The release arrives alongside an official visual, co-directed by Joshua Moll and Oliver Kirby.
Produced by Jennifer Decilveo (Miley Cyrus, Bat For Lashes / Anne-Marie) and mixed by Mark Rankin (Florence & The Machine, Harry Styles, Broods), the intimate release offers up a vulnerable side of the singers, exposing their own insecurities within a relationship and exploring the irrational effects that can arise. "Cry is the first song we're releasing that explores our vulnerable side when it comes to love and relationships, so we're excited to be putting it out, especially since we feel like it's a pretty universal predicament.” the duo share of the track.
Moll and Kirby add of the visual, "The characters on screen represent the performative nature of online - we spend time cropping our photos, striking manufactured poses, and editing our true selves. The cabin represents the real world - natural light, wooden frames, and earthy fixtures, yet in this world they are still obsessed by a screen. As the two interact, the lines become blurred, and we are left to wonder whether a world built on trying to hide and edit insecurities can lead to anything but tears.”
The two singers met at a young age at an after-school program for developing artists. Since then, the duo have been inseparable, performing together regularly, appeared on television singing competitions and have been slowly building their fanbase. Now, the duo are taking the conversations they have not only together, but with their fans online, and are creating their own realm in which their music exists. Last year, the duo made their live debut with sold-out headline performances, as well as appearances at Splendour XR and the APRA Awards.
