Produced by Pomo, this track is addictive through and through.
A singer, song writer, and producer originally from South Florida, CatchTwentyTwo spent many years of his youth migrating state to state from Florida, Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, where he lived most of his life and the spark of music started, and back again to Florida. CatchTwentyTwo breaks away from the accustomed routine of music of today’s times, and instead chooses to focus on what matters most: the expression of emotion in its authentic form. Often soft-spoken and invariably sullen in his vocal style, the artist delves into deeper themes of emotion in his craft. From the feeling of excitement, joy, and feeling sentimental to romantic, and sad. Each hook, and rhyme is deeply entrenched in conveying the most intimate moments of the human experience.
CatchTwentyTwo started gaining interest in music after stumbling across Michael Jackson while young on YouTube. From that moment on, he then started taking choir classes throughout middle school and high school. There he would take what he could learn from the piano/keys used by instructors to use in his own production later on after diving deeper into the production side and Fl Studio. His personal influences range from Michael Jackson, Prince, The Weeknd, Daft Punk, Pharrell, Tame Impala, The Neighbourhood, Bruno Mars, Toro y Moi, and Roosevelt, among others. Now he is releasing music under Ultra Music.
The song begins with the groovy and catchy instrumental, immediately making us want to move our body to the track. CatchTwentyTwo’s stunning vocals naturally begin to ride the wave of the vibes, only adding beautiful vocal melodies and texture to the song. This track isn’t just like any other track. From the instruments used for the beat, to the vocal delivery and vocal melodies, it brings a unique vintage sound with a touch of modernity through production quality that feels like we’d hear it in chill spaces all across the world. A touch of the 80s is all it took for me to start moving my hips, and I can’t wait to stream this song everywhere I go to put me in a good headspace.
I had the privilege of interviwing CatchTwentyTwo about the track, check it out below!
What inspired you to make this song?
What inspired me to make the song was the beat itself. Once I heard it, produced by the awesome Pomo, it felt genuinely vintage and sounded like something my favorite artists of the past would’ve hopped on.
What was your favorite part about making this song?
My favorite part of making the song was definitely the hook, as it was very fun to record. Maybe the beginning too, with the way it starts with just the synth and then drops to the beat.
What was the hardest part?
The hardest part was singing some of the riffs that I was trying in the second verse. I had to do that a few times until it was fine to me. It was kind of tedious, but it sounded good.
Was this release cathartic for you?
The release was a bit cathartic to me because it was made a few months ago, and I’m in Florida where things are still closed down like some bars and venues, and so it was kind of about not being able to perform and meet new faces but wanting to, using someone close to me in this example.
What keeps you motivated?
What keeps me motivated is whenever I get the opportunity to reach a new listener. When someone enjoys it and they vocalize to me what they love about a song, it’s an awesome feeling that keeps me going. The support helps when you’re feeling down and there’s that one person that goes “what, no, you’re awesome!”
What can we expect next from you?
I think everyone could expect more singles from me in the mean time as I’m prepping up more work for down the line.
What other artists are you listening to right now?
I’m listening to a lot of Air Supply, Sade, Tame Impala, The Weeknd, to Grimes. To be honest, these days, my music taste is completely random.
Thank you for taking the time to answer those questions for us!
