Taken from their acclaimed album Birling Gap, The Catenary Wires’ new single “Always On My Mind” is accompanied by a brand new music video.

The Catenary Wires combine Amelia Fletcher and Rob Pursey (both ex-Heavenly, Talulah Gosh) with Fay Hallam (Makin’ Time), Andy Lewis (The Paul Weller Group, Pimlico), and Ian Button* (Death in Vegas, Papernut Cambridge).

“Always On My Mind” is a track for late summer. It’s a love song full of warmth and emotion. An old photograph taken on a late summer holiday transports us back to a perfect moment when a relationship first started. But there’s bittersweet regret in there too.

In the photograph, the sun’s rays were still warm, but they were getting longer; the colder autumn evenings weren’t far away. Did the relationship survive the winter? And now, is it that person in the photo the one we are still in love with, or are they long gone – leaving us with just a memory embedded in a faded old picture?

The song and the video are celebrations of the fact that The Catenary Wires have evolved from a duo into a five-piece band, where everyone contributes to the rich instrumentation and the blissful vocal harmonies.

The video was filmed by all five members of the band, taking it in turns in the practice room – the first time they’d all been together since the start of lockdown.

The Catenary Wires are also celebrating the fact that they are playing live in September, with first show on the single’s release date (full tour info below).

“Always On My Mind” is released as a digital single via Skep Wax Records*(UK) and *Shellife Records (US).
