WATCH: Cat Clyde - 'Everywhere I Go'

I'm working most days this week so things are a little quiet here, but I wanted to share a post to say that I am reaaaally digging the new Cat Clyde album Down Rounder. SO good. A new name to me, and I'm excited to head into her back catalogue at the first opportunity. Papa Took My Totems is a banger, and I won't hear any different. (Check it out for yourself here.)

Latest single Everywhere I Go is pretty great too, and there's an ace new video featuring footage from Cat's current UK tour supporting Lissie which you can watch below. Cat explains "I created this video during my tour across the UK in February. It was filmed by Strummer Jasson mostly around Glasgow and traveling by train toward London, and in London. I wanted to capture the movement and message of the song as we travelled along, as traveling and movement are such a big part of my life." 

On the record's title and themes, Cat shares: "I’ve always felt like a rounder. I feel the term encapsulates the lost and searching nature of railroad hobos, cowboys, gold miners, adventurers - a rounder is someone who moves around through natural landscapes looking for answers, to make sense of it all through movement and experience. To find something or some place that could feel like home, to belong to the land and feel a part of something greater. During the making of this record I felt very lost and low and felt the songs were a way for me to explore myself and venture more deeply into my own natural landscape within. I was a down rounder, low down but still a rounder."
