On ‘Fade,’ Catbells Examines The Different Ways We Move On
Have you ever had a broken heart, only to realize that the one who broke it escaped the same fate?
Catbells visits that feeling on “Fade (Rainy Day Demo),” her newly-released, melancholic alt-pop ballad. The mysterious indie songstress — whose pseudonym is borrowed from the popular hiking spot in Beatrix Potter’s The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle — hits us with hypnotic vocals and a lush, shoegaze-inspired soundscape as she processes the different ways we move on from love.
“The song really wrote itself and the music needed to match the feeling of how the words felt,” Catbells said. “There are few people who are lucky enough to escape the feeling of a completely broken heart, and feeling like the person you loved so much just moved on like it was nothing, leaving you left there with a hole where your heart once was.”
The song’s official video was directed by Gris Visa. The visual encapsulates Catbells’ search for answers and, appropriately, features innovative illustrations of a cat saying farewell against the backdrop of a starry night.
