– OUT APRIL 28th 2017

“A crisp new pop belter to raise expectations… All taut energy and lucid
The Independent

“Gorgeous, soaring, folk-pop anthems for passionate souls” -colour, it’s an instantly infectious gem” – Clash

“Brings to mind the anthemic autumnal vibe of Bastille while nodding heads to more classic artists like Fleetwood Mac” – Gigsoup

Ahead of the release of their sophomore album ‘Mirrors’ on Friday 28th April 2017, Cattle & Cane reveal their brand new single ‘Fool For You’. The infectious fan-favourite is filled with memorable hooks and the kind of soaring harmonies that have become synonymous with siblings Joe and Helen Hammill. With the anthemic “oh oh oh” refrain seemingly ready made for summer festivals, ‘Fool For You’ tips its hat to classic acts such as ELO, The Beatles and Supertramp, whilst maintaining a sound that has its heart and soul firmly in the present.

Although the rest of ‘Mirrors’ was produced by Luuk Cox at ICP Studios in Brussels, ‘Fool For You’ was produced at home, on Teesside, by Joe and mixed by Patrick Jordan. The whole album was mastered at Abbey Road Studios in London by Frank Arkwright (Arcade Fire, Coldplay, New Order) and Joe said, “as huge Beatles fans, there’s something incredibly special about working with Abbey Road and Frank has really brought out the best in all of the songs.”

Filmed in Middlesbrough’s magnificent Grade II listed Reference Library, the video for the single will be premiered online by the Independent on Thursday 30th March and features young actors and actresses from Middlesbrough Youth Theatre. “We’re proud to come from Teesside and we’re so lucky to have so many talented people and so many beautiful locations on ourdoorstep” said Helen.

The band also toured abroad for the first time with gigs in Germany, Malta and Belgium, while a sold-out 1,100 capacity show at The Middlesbrough Empire ensured a triumphant finale to 2016:

Since being released on 2nd December 2016, recent single ’7 Hours’ has already clocked up over 600,000 online streams and numerous national radio plays from long time champion Dermot O’Leary, who previously showcased the band on his ‘Saturday Sessions’ compilation following a beautiful live session on his show.

With support from the likes of BBC Radio 2, the Independent, Amazing Radio, Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch and BBC Introducing, Cattle & Cane have built up a loyal and passionate following – afan-base that helped propel their debut album ‘Home’ into the top 30 of the Official UK Independent Album Chart in September 2015, sandwiched between Adele and Arctic Monkeys no less. With the release of ‘Fool For You’ and ‘Mirrors’, Cattle & Cane’s ubiquity in their native North East looks set to spread far and wide in 2017. | |
