Bio

Tijuana Cartel's remix of 'Strong Hands' now up on Unearthed!

After returning from a UK festival (feat. The Fratellis) touring across Australia and supporting Ash Grunwald, Tijuana Cartel, Seth Sentry, Mat McHugh and OKA, Perth's Ben Catley recently released AA side 'Strong Hands/Open Skies'.

Recorded with Matt Gio (Birds of Tokyo, San Cisco, Illy), first single 'Strong Hands' originated as a challenge Ben gave himself of writing purely during shows. A mostly instrumental journey that hammers hard for two super fun minutes before ending sharply to the surprise of Ben screaming vocals into his acoustic guitar; a part of his live show he has become renowned for.

'Open Skies' cruises into dreamy coastal feels, while still keeping plenty grit and attitude, with the simple theme of always trying to keep relationships and conversations honest, and that even little white lies can get us in trouble. A super catchy, feel-good tune with a summery bounce.

First Tijuana Cartel remix your track and then you go and remix their track... if that's not love, I'm not sure what is! I'm a huge fan of Tijuana Cartel and I've loved what you've turned this into. I particularly love that build and drop at 1:30 min...what a raver!
