CATALANO – PATIENCE, PERSEVERANCE

Date: September 2015
Artist: Catalano

Italian-born and Oxford-based Catalano has released a brand new single and announced the release of his debut album.

Catalano has the self-confessed nasty habit of starting multiple projects without ever finishing one. A hefty, almost forceful reaction against his own scatterbrained disposition, Patience, Perseverance is the result of 18 months of self-discipline and unwavering devotion to the painstaking craft of electronic music.

The debut single sees Catalano combining quirky synth melodies with anthemic piano riffs, while multi-layered, ultra-detailed drum patterns slowly but mercilessly drive any shred of pleasantness into a fuzzy, shoegazey wall of noise.

One layer after the other and you’ve got yourself a wall of sound. Catalano is not one to like the minimalist approach. A sound engineer by trade and multi-instrumentalist by choice, he has spent years refining his maximalist philosophy working on other people’s music – now he’s decided to finally throw himself in the mix.

‘Whenever Something Is Broken, You Just Throw It Away’, available to stream underneath, is taken from the album Patience, Perseverance – which is released on 26 October 2015 and is now available to pre-order at the One Note Forever store.
