TRACK REVIEW: Cat Ryan – Like This | NARC. | Reliably Informed | Music and Creative Arts News for Newcastle and the North East

Reliably informed

Cat Ryan do seem to have a knack for producing music with sunny summer vibes, as a trawl through their already pretty large back catalogue demonstrates. Like This is a tune written way back in 2017 and reworked again here to great effect, adding fresh colour to the main guitar line as it shimmers brightly, reminiscent of Malian or Calypso picking, providing a complementary shine to Mary-Anne Murphy’s equally chipper sounding vocals.

The inherent rootsy feel, shared with another fan favourite tune Mannerisms, never fails to make the foot tap even when the lyrics run contrary to the happy melodies and deal with darker subjects, in this case the disappointment of heartbreak. Like This features on the band’s upcoming EP release, due soon.
