In case you haven’t looked at a calendar lately or stepped foot outdoors because you’re glued to your Netflix and/or HBO GO account, let us fill you in on a not-so-secret secret: Summer is coming.
With warmer days on the horizon, that means road trips to the beach will be in full effect before you know it. And what goes better with the beach than a little alt-rock reggae a la Tempe, Arizona’s Katastro? Well, nothing.
So to get you prepared for those hour-long afternoons spent basking under the sun with your (hopefully committed) significant other, today The Noise is premiering Katastro’s promiscuous new single “Your Girl.”
Lyrically centered around a love triangle gone wrong, Katastro’s latest is an ode to anyone who might have more than just a friendship with their friend’s girlfriend. Musically, the band’s Dirty Heads-like track is an evolution from the sounds heard on last year’s rap-heavy release Washed.
Commenting on their newer musical direction, the band collectively said: “‘Your Girl’ is just the beginning of a whole new chapter for us. We took some time in between tours to begin writing again for a new album that is slated to be out this fall and this record was one of the first to come out of those sessions.”
“After testing it out live,” added the Arizona act, “we knew it was gonna be a staple at our shows and it just feels like the perfect fit to drop first for the summer. We are going to continue to switch things up every album we release and are excited to finally be able to share this with you.”
For your first taste of what’s to come from Katastro here in 2019, be sure to check out their summer love anthem “Your Girl” below. Afterward, make sure to grab tickets to see the band out on tour with Iration, Pepper and Fortunate Youth here.
