"Bins on fire, what's the occasion?", Cate Le Bon breathlessly intones upon the ether. Well, what occasion do you need? Any day is a great one for a resounding stomp to rebound us back from a deeply lousy calendar year. One of the few good things that happened in 2*** was the release of Cate's Crab Day back in April - and now, some nine months later, the four-song EP "Rock Pool" is a succinct and terse second coming, with Cate's gold songs guided by the incredible chemistry between the players (H. Hawkline, Stephen Black, Stella Mozgawa and Cate). The 12-inch doesn't hit shelves until the January 27, but with an impending national tour (co-headlined with Tim Presley), let's get this party started! Here's a drop from the "Rock Pool" to start the flow motion.
The video for "Rock Pool" finds Cate reunited with director Casey Raymond for a fantastical experimentation in neo-Technicolor, La Nouvelle Vague and a locale that could be a dead ringer for Led Zeppelin's Houses of The Holy!
