The Catenary Wires: Mirrorball

The Catenary Wires

English band The Catenary Wires started out as a duo. Amelia Fletcher and Rob Pursey bonded over a shared love for melodic pop, something that is still very much part of their sound now that they have teamed up with three other like-minded musicians to form a full band. Their new single Mirrorball is about feeling awkward during an 80s dance night, with two people checking each other out, not sure how to make the first move. Musically it is a throwback to the heyday of the New Romantics, albeit with an indie twist and the warm sound of a Hammond organ acting as a comfy blanket. Nostalgia abounds, while fully realizing that they are not young anymore.

The Catenary Wires:
Amelia Fletcher: vocals, harmonium
Rob Pursey: vocals, guitar
Fay Hallam: Hammond organ, backing vocals
Ian Button: drums, backing vocals
Andy Lewis: bass, production

Mirrorball will be released om 7" on their own label Skep Wax (UK + ROW) and Shelflife Records (USA). Release date: April 16th. Their new album Birling Gap will be available on May 28, 2021.
