SINGLE REVIEW: Homesick (Catfish and the Bottlemen)

16 Jun

Mixing an explosive chorus with a down-key verse can often sound contrived and incohesive, but Catfish and the Bottlemen manage to avoid falling into the trap on new single ‘Homesick’. The track clocks in at two and a half minutes but feels like it’s over before you know it, stopping and starting in bursts without needing to catch its breath. Despite the young age of the band, there’s no sign of immaturity or inexperience – instead, just potential. ‘Homesick’ they might be, but it’ll take a while before we’re sick of this ourselves.
