With “Rational Anthems”, Catch As Catch Can present their long-awaited second long-player. It celebrates the contradictions that have long defined the band. This is already reflected in the title: rationality and pathos are sometimes played off against each other, but then also appear together. Musically as well as in terms of content, CACC play with contrasts and always take turns from one genre to another. After their first album ‘Regular Vanilla’ (Alien Snatch) and their last 7″ ‘Ghost In My House’ (Slice Of Wax), which was still strongly oriented towards good-humoured 60s rock’n’roll and surf, new paths are now being taken.
