The CATENARY WIRES – ” The Overview Effect “

Amelia Fletcher and Rob Pursey have been in so many great bands over the last 40 years, most notably Talulah Gosh and Heavenly, but also Tender Trap, Marine Research and, since 2014, The Catenary Wires. The names and other band members change over the years but the general vibe does not — indie pop that veers towards, but not too far into, twee territory with heartfelt, bookish but unpretentious lyrics. Amelia and Rob are set to release “Birling Gap”, the third Catenary Wires album, on June 18th via Shelflife and Skep Wax Records.

Previous Catenary Wires albums have been very gently, just Amelia and Rob and some lightly strummed acoustic guitars, but they’re now a five-piece, and Birling Gap looks to be a much more fleshed-out record. We’ve already heard a taste of what’s to come with “Mirrorball,” an unabashedly romantic and danceable tribute to never giving up on love and ’80s discos. They’ve now released a second single, “The Overview Effect,” a tender, dreamy number about getting older and accepting it. “Can’t things stay the same?” Rob and Amelia sing to each other, stars in their eyes, already knowing the answer.
