Funking along at a frenetic pace with a bubbling bass and chunky guitars, ‘Catch Your Flow’ is a sparkling and bright piece of electronic disco from Brisbane duo Syrup.
Mixing an indie sensibility with something that traipses along with an electronic hum and catchy refrain, this is energising stuff. And it’s not all superficial hedonistic dance floor excesses, either. The duo says of the themes:
Catch Your Flow is a song about uncertainty. At its root, the song explores the precariousness of thought. The patterns of thinking, moods and mental dispositions which we all face. How one can fall into a mood and what caused it to be (ref. “Seems I’m starting to panic, I just wish I knew why.”) Whether that be through external or internal means. It’s the awkward questions that arise from not understanding why or how. The rhetorical and uncomfortable consultations we place ourselves in every day. It’s also how we escape this, the process of discovering and evolving (ref. “in case of something sporadic I’ll lean into something steady”).
It’s every bit about how the little moments fashion the grand whilst focussing on the steady hand that labours you towards the right path. Taking these signals with gusto is a process of catching the flow.
Indeed, there is a jittery, almost anxious feel to the pace and a certain indefinable melancholic air. The accompanying visualiser was created by the band’s Henry Anderson;
This is a very satisfying merger of music for the brains and the feet. Bitter sweet and definitely not saccharine, Syrup is the musical project of childhood friends Harry Pratt and Henry Anderson.
