Catfish & The Bottlemen - Kathleen (Communion Records/Island Records) 
Catfish & The Bottlemen - Kathleen

Release Date: 14th April 2014

One of 2014's hottest properties are back with their latest single, 'Kathleen', and this is about all I can take. There is such a thing as too much foreplay before getting down to the actual, well, sex and 4 singles without releasing the album is leaving me in danger of popping my load before I get anywhere near penetration. Too much information? Get over it, prude. Needless to say, 'Kathleen' is full of trademark edgy guitars, crashing drums and frontman Van's impassioned vocals that scream and rasp like a man at the end of his wits. This single is a little lighter and poppier than their previous releases but there is still a mischievous twinkle to proceedings and it won't be long before these guys are causing more problems around the UK and illegitimate children are being named Kathleen. Time for the album now boys, no more teasing. My nipples are red raw.
