Pedal along to the mystical metal of the single & video for “Peddle it”, the first listen taken off of the debut album why don’t you // why don’t you, go off available April 1 from Dublin’s Little L Records. Conceived & drafted between Dublin, Ireland and Louisville, Kentucky; Blaney along with Christopher Barry & Oisin Trench channel underlying sentiments of fixations, absences & profound introspection; Cat Palace takes all of our interpersonal connections & disconnects into the weirdness of an astral plane in the hopes that one day we will all find one another.

The duo takes all those stoney prog records your parents and older siblings swear by and celebrates the weirdness of what rumbling & wandering chord & rhythms arrangements can bring. “Peddle It” is the feel of trekking through the cosmos by way of analog means where the ice-cream sunglasses lens combines lonely planets from the galaxy & desolate tropical isles together in a brew that looks & sounds like VHS tape slowly melting inside of a vintage VCR. This is the single & video required by all who seek an immediate escapist holiday away from whatever ails them.

Blaney provided us with the following introductory words about the creation of the video:

Influenced by Italian neo-realist cinema, the video was shot in numerous locations, over a period of 18 months, including space.

Director Nathan Fagan had this to say:

So, yeah, we had to wait for months in the Canadian Yukon to capture the Aurora Borealis. It was a serious challenge, mentally and physically. But great art has always been borne of hardship.
