Catfish and the Bottlemen will move you
Today’s rock music often comes with the requisite of pushing the limit (thanks, Beatles), but British band Catfish and the Bottlemen prefers simplicity. It’s not because they’re uninspired or lacking creativity, but the group understands that loud guitars, gritty vocals and catchy hooks make for an energetic and lively concert. “Everything’s based around people moving and people singing,” said frontman Van McCann in an interview with Rolling Stone last May. “It’s all about arms being in the air, hips moving, that kind of stuff.” Yet while the band’s focus is on high-voltage performances, it would be wrong to assume that the music doesn’t matter. Beneath the rock ‘n’ roll ruckus, songs like “7,” “Homesick” and “Cocoon” are vulnerable and often lament lost love, all while making you want to move.
