It’s been almost a year since we last heard from San Francisco’s own Cathedrals, and over three years since they released their acclaimed debut EP Blush on Neon Gold Records. Just as we were starting to wonder whether we’d ever hear from our hometown favorites again (and ready to bawl our eyes out at their absence), the synth and alt pop duo are back with pure sonic gold on new single Hits Me Like a Landslide. Brodie Jenkins and Johnny Hwin even kick the level of their brilliance up several more notches with the exceptional tune. Hits Me Like a Landslide, the first single from a new set of songs they’re finally ready to share with us throughout the rest of this year, features lines lifted from the pages of love letters. It’s also the first single to feature Johnny on lead singles since Cathedrals’ debut single Unbound. Hits Me Like a Landslide is a tidal wave of emotions, a passionately gusting, sonorously soaring synthpop epic that seems to meld CHVRCHES’ electropop with The Naked And Famous’ lush soundscapes and Twin Shadow’s voluminous grandeur. It’s a gloriously gut-punching torrent of tormented anguish, assembled ever so flawlessly with sleek retro synths and the duo’s resounding vocals. DoTheBay premiered the new single last Friday, calling it ‘among the band’s most evocative cuts yet.’ We fully concur with the assessment. Alternate streaming and download links can be found, here. To say we’re head over heels for Cathedrals once again, is an understatement. The same can be said about how excited we are to hear the rest of their new songs.
