VIDEO PREMIERE: Catcher Brings Ferocious Post-Punk Heat On “Behind a Bleeding Heart”

It’s no understatement that we’ve been gifted with a fair amount of legit post-punk bands that permeate the gritty stench of late 70s Britain. Fontaines D.C., Idles, and Viagra Boys have brought the “rock” back into indie where nearly a trendy keyboard riff will ever be found. Enter NYC post-punk outfit Catcher, who brings hellbent cryptic electricity and ferocious brevity to the music landscape.

Formed in 2021, Catcher has garnered a growing international fan base with its captivating and visceral live performances. The post-punk 6-piece quickly established a reputation as ‘one of NYC’s hottest guitar-wielding prospects’ as mentioned in The NME 100: Essential Emerging Artists for 2022. Following the release of their debut record, The Fat Of A Broken Heart, the group was lauded as a must-see act at the 2022 SXSW music festival, with NME stating that their “set was a perfect encapsulation of everything that makes SXSW an experience like no other.”

Glide is premiering Catcher’s self-directed music video for their single “Behind a Bleeding Heart” a dirty whirl of guitar, vocals, and rhythmic persistence and perseverance that fans of Joy Divison and early Cure will adore.

“For this video, we took some inspiration from Ira Cohen and covered our demo studio in mylar, shooting a lot of the reflections. We also experimented with styling vaseline on the lens of our camera and directly shooting a camcorder monitor,” says drummer Wilson Chestney.
