Every once in a while, you’ll stumble across a track that you never knew you needed in your playlists. Livelihood is the latest single from a Cleveland, Ohio based trio who infuse sounds from a myriad of genres to prove that there ARE new directions for music to take.
Their instrumental arrangements are nothing short of genius, and as for the vocals, if they don’t move you, then I’d be worried that you’re a little dead inside. Vocalist, songwriter and bassist Cathalyn has an overwhelmingly sultry vocal style which adds the perfect layer of harmony to the already viscerally sensual track. If all that wasn’t enough; the guitar riff which helps to draw the track to a close won’t fail to leave you in awe of the guitarists deftly melodic prowess.
I’ll never tire of hearing the haunting yet tantalising notes of an organ gliding over soulfully contemporary urban pop mixes. Yet, the up and coming, prodigally pioneering trio the Katy utilised the lucidly ethereal instrument in a way like I’ve never heard before with their funk-fuelled, Trap-driven urban offering of soulful Pop.
