While we are all about the high-energy mania that electronic music offers us, it is clear that at some moments we just want to slow down. On our latest dive into the indie world, we are checking out “Filling Space”, the latest single from Loose Cattle. For those unfamiliar with Loose Cattle, they are a new New Orleans / New York Americana band fronted by two-timeTony Award & Grammy winner Michael Cerveris and Kimberly Kaye, Founded all the way back in 2011, Cerveris and Kaye connected over their shared love and passion for roots music in the vein of Johnny Cash’s and June Carter Cash’s duets. Starting off playing country covers in their friend’s living rooms, Loose Cattle gained buzz and they found themselves performing on stages such as Lincoln Center to Jazz Fest & NPR’s Mountain Stage. Their initial release Seasonal Affective Disorder snagged them plenty of praise from the country fan base as well as major outlets like Rolling Stone Country and the Los Angeles Times!
“As a person on the autism spectrum, I especially appreciate this song for so perfectly capturing that THING many of us have felt, but can’t articulate without sounding ‘crazy,’ rude, or both — where you’re so lonely, remorseful, or overwhelmed you don’t have room to listen to anyone else’s story, but still desperately need to connect with someone, anyone. We’ve all had that night where we want to scream ‘Please don’t say a thing, but also please don’t go anywhere and maybe also hold me?’ This is a song that makes that sound, and feel, a little less weird.” – Kimberly Kaye
However, after all of that praise and nearly a decade-long career, Loose Cattle finally stepped into the studio to make a proper studio album. Recorded back in what seems another life ago (early 2020), Heavy Lifting sports a wide variety of music featuring sounds that expand across the years. The album weaves in and out of the guitar-driven country, folk, and southern rock, while taking their moment in the spotlight to explore themes of resistance and true resilience of marginalized people throughout the world. The final single off of Heavy Lifting, “Filling Space” emanates the album’s core themes…all set to an almost melancholy waltz. The pain and emotion within each note overflow into your ears and heart, providing you with a serious moment of introspection if you are willing to take it. You can actually check out the album in its entirety now on your favorite streaming platform!
