Heavy basslines, crunchy rhythmic guitars and a riding, Californian-tinged breakdown. This isn’t the same sound that Sheppard is known for…this isn’t the same band that fans have come to know and love…this is something completely different, in the best possible way.
First conceptualised in LA during a month-long writing session, before being finished in their hometown of Brisbane Australia, the band’s August-release ‘Catalina’ has been three years in the making.
“We were so inspired by California when we were there, that a song about California basically wrote itself” Said Amy Sheppard, whose vocals lead the new single. “It depicts a racy story of two lovers, sunglasses on and roof down, driving through the Californian desert with the sun in their faces and their real lives in the rearview mirror. This track isn’t your typical Sheppard sound, but I can’t remember the last time we had this much fun recording a single”.
