Catholic Guilt debuted the video for its latest single this week.
The band debuted the video for its new single ‘Life in Three Part Harmony‘ Tuesday. The song and its video are the fourth from the band’s recently released EP This Is What Honesty Sounds Like. T
he band debuted the EP’s third single ‘A Boutique Affair‘ and its video in July. The EP’s second single ‘The Awful Truth‘ debuted June 19 and its lead single ‘Song of the Renter‘ debuted Feb. 10.
The ‘Life in Three Part Harmony’ animated video is meant to reflect a live performance by the band, complete with fans crowd surfing. The single plays over the video as it progresses. The song in question features a ballad style approach in its guitars and vocals that is certain to connect easily with the band’s fan base.
Front man Brehton Harris talked about the video during a recent interview.
“Due to the pandemic, we’d been without live music in Melbourne since March, and to say we missed it a lot is an understatement,” said Harris. “As a band playing live is obviously crucial to our existence, but it’s not just the playing that we missed, it’s all the little connections that come with it. Whether playing or attending a gig, it’s so much more than just a gig. It’s an opportunity to truly connect with other human beings and share a once-in-a-lifetime experience. A chance to catch up with friends or to meet new ones, an excuse to have a few drinks and sing yourself hoarse or mosh away the stress of daily life. It can be an avenue for escape or a safe space where you can be your truest self.”
“The vision for this video was to recreate the experience of a show in a way that would highlight all of those little connections that are currently missing from our lives without live music,” added Harris. “If the FOMO we’ve felt watching it is anything to judge it by, then the animator Jed has absolutely nailed it. We hope you enjoy it.”
The gentle musical approach is used to help translate the message in the song’s lyrical content, which Harris said is meant to celebrate the unity brought by music.
“‘Life in Three Part Harmony’ is a love song to the awesome connective power of live music,” said Harris. “There’s something magical that happens when a music lover is watching their favourite act perform live. They become immersed in music. It takes over their mind, body and soul, and for those precious few minutes or hours, they are connected on a near-spiritual wavelength with the artist.”
“This is a song for anyone who understands that moment when an artist hits the high note and it penetrates your soul, and you look around and notice another human experiencing that special rush too,” added Harris. “That moment has completely changed each of our lives numerous times. On a personal note, this song is a celebration of my happiest place: the front row of a sold-out show, with my partner by my side, singing the words at the top of our lungs like our very existence depends on it.”
