Liverpool dream pop from new Domino Records signings The Catchers.
It’s been a good week for Liverpool’s new crop; Loved Ones dropped a wee corker, Married to the Sea returned with a dancefloor shaker, By The Sea scooped top spot on NME‘s radar and now this little gem arrives.
The Catchers are the vehicle for Peter Jackson‘s piano-led lullabies and they follow neatly in the vein of Liverpool’s rich history of snappy, beat-pop.
Blending The Head brothers’ rough round the edges melodicism with Brian Wilson‘s whimsical way round the ivories, The Catchers (also featuring Chris Gleaves on guitar) have been hastily snapped up by Domino Records with a full album expected later this year.
They’ve been working with Richard Formby at Eve Studios with Bill Ryder-Jones also helping out on production duties and some of the fruits are hosted over on their site.
Take a listen to these two crackers, It Gets Me Through and If I Fell.
Get Me Through also features a piano refrain which reminds me of Bugsy Malone‘s If You Give A Little Love – always a good thing.
There’s also a lovely little snapshot of Peter at work in Elevator Studios from his twitter here.
