Cat Dowling – The Believer

Cat Dowling

This is blistering stuff from Cat Dowling who appears to be channelling Sharon Van Etten on the title track of her LP from last year ‘The Believer’. And while that might lead to many an eye roll given the standing of Van Etten you should really let this track work its magic. It has recently appeared on the radar again thanks to a new promo video created in its honour (see below) and also its recent appearance on an episode of the US TV series ‘Banshee’. Dowling’s vocals are the obvious hook throughout but there is a world of crazy dynamics going on in the background to steal your attention as well. It has the essence of a good old fashioned haunting but somehow Dowling pulls the carpet from beneath the horror and replaced it with a sense of unapologetic hope. KD
