Melbourne/Naarm alt-rockers Catholic Guilt share their nostalgic new tune Can You See Me?, out via Wiretap Records, and prepare to share it live at The Tote in Melbourne on November 18.
Drawing inspiration from the Australian indie and punk scene from the 2000s, Can You See Me? is a tale of lost identity and feeling at odds with yourself. Vocalist Brenton Harris explains: “For me personally, that feeling was brought on by a period of intense emotional and physical upheaval caused by a variety of interpersonal issues and a few serious life and career setbacks.
“All of these issues coalesced around the time of the lockdowns and ended up impacting life on the other side of it, resulting in me living life as a version of myself that felt so unfamiliar, so unconfident, so shaken, so entirely unlike ‘me’. Writing the song allowed me to process and heal and move onto the next evolution of ‘myself’. It’s our ‘feel sad hit of the summer’.”
