Cat & Calmell Announce New Mini-Album “How Do You Feel?”, Shares New Song “Feel Alive”
Sydney-based alt-pop duo Cat & Calmell, consisting of Catherine Stratton and Calmell Teagle, has announced their upcoming mini-album “How Do You Feel?” will be released on September 29, 2023.
From the mini-album, the duo released the second single called “Feel Alive” along with a music video on June 13, 2023.
The track was written by Catherine Stratton, Calmell Teagle, and Taka Perry who also produced it.
The accompanying video was directed by Joshua Moll, Oliver Kirby, Calmell Teagle, and Catherine Stratton, who filmed on location in Sydney.
The duo said of the song, “When we wrote this, Calmell and I were in a really dissociative state. I had just turned twenty and was getting really, really scared and existential about everything, I had a lot of anxiety, and I didn't know what to do with myself and nothing made me feel good. So, the main sentiment of the song is that only when I think about dying do I actually even feel anything at all—whether it's fear or excitement.”
- The mini-album is their first project in two years since the 2021 debut EP “Life of Mine”.
The mini-album comprises 7-track. The duo explained about mini-album as “a different little pocket, or memory, or situation.”
The duo said, “I feel like the last song on LOM was super vulnerable and sort of set us up for this new project. For the most part, on our last album, we were just having fun and writing about whatever, and then with the last song the ice had just started to crack. Now, with this project we're like, 'OK, we're dealing with it now. There's shit we need to talk about'”.
