Catholic Guilt are a Melbourne punk rock outfit delivering super raw, emotive tunes. The five-piece have released a new EP today, Friday 28th August. It’s called This is What Honesty Sounds Like and it’s a comprehensive and exciting release.
It offers us deeper and reflective moments on tracks like ‘Song Of The Renter’ and brings us back up with heavy and fast moments on tracks like ‘The Awful Truth’.
Catholic Guilt recently signed with Cali-based label, Wiretap Records ahead of the new release. On which they said, “There’s some harsh truths here, but there’s also a lot of hope and self-discovery. Instrumentally, thematically, personally, collectively, these are the best five songs we have to offer and we hope you enjoy listening to and connecting with them.”
Earlier this week, the band also launched their own video game, based on the EP track ‘A Boutique Affair’. Free to play, the three-level 8-bit platformer, dubbed Furrend Finder, allows you to play the part of kitten ‘Lucy Furr’ as she goes on a quest to find and rescue her furrends from the cage of loneliness. Can relate.
Pending the end of the global pandemic.
This is What Honesty Sounds Like would fit into any Aussie emo tragic’s collection. It’s raw, emotive, and, as the title suggests, an honest release. The lyrics are clever and punchy, the instrumentals build in an emotive way, but just when you’re laying down in self-reflection, you are jolted back up by a pummeling eat. We dig it, a lot.
