Track Of The Day :: Cathedrals - Don't Act Like A Stranger
Words: Ellie Ward
Something of an apt title from San Francisco duo Cathedrals, 'Don't Act Like A Stranger', as we haven't heard a great deal from them lately after their 'OOO AAA' and 'Harlem' releases of 2014 and self-titled debut EP.
Now producer Johnny Hwin and vocalist Brodie Jenkins reemerge after two years in self-imposed hibernation with a song, they say, "about yearning, and hope—even in the midst of heartache. It's about exploring the beauty in that uncomfortable space between where we are and where we aspire to be. For us, it's a re-emergence, and a new beginning."
Thankfully, the Cathedrals trademark style of soulful R&B merged with electro-pop ambience is as firmly in place as ever.
