Brisbane alt-pop outfit Syrup are back with their new banger, Catch Your Flow. The song
fuses together the bands exploration alt-pop soundscapes, this time threaded together with elements of of early 2000s electro-pop. The duo have also shared an animated video created by vocalist Henry Anderson.
Conceptually, the song finds its standpoint exploring themes of uncertainty and the longing for a 'sign' from the universe. Mixing together contemporary sounds with notes of nostalgia, the duo are bringing traditional disco, utilising low end vibes to be able to bring the sounds into a modern soundscape, without losing that timeless groove.
Speaking of the track, the duo share: "Catch Your Flow is a song about uncertainty. At its root, the song explores the precariousness of thought. The patterns of thinking, moods and mental dispositions which we all face. How one can fall into a mood and what caused it to be (ref. “Seems I’m starting to panic, I just wish I knew why.”) Whether that be through external or internal means. It’s the awkward questions that arise from not understanding why or how. The rhetorical and uncomfortable consultations we place ourselves in everyday. It’s also how we escape this, the process of discovering and evolving (ref. “in case of something sporadic I’ll lean into something steady”). It’s every bit about how the little moments fashion the grand whilst focussing on the steady hand that labours you towards the right path. Taking these signals with gusto is a process of catching the flow.'
Made up of Harry Pratt and Anderson, Syrup released their debut EP, The Sponge, in 2019. The release saw the duo sell-out two headline shows and support the likes of Slum Sociable, Miami Horror and Jaguar Jonze. Now, the pair have three single releases under their belt for 2020, with Turn following Line and Sun. The duo are working away on their sophomore EP, set to be released this year. The full-length release is set to continue the funk based sound Pratt and Anderson are establishing, juxtaposing their debut, but retaining the spirit of Syrup.
