Hailing from West London dance-pop singer-songwriter Swaati has been turning heads within the music industry with her distinctive vocals and song writing skills. With a sound described as a fusion of electronic, commercial and French House, Swaati has been compared to Lykke Li, Grimes and London Grammar, with her haunting and emotive vocals.
She invites you into her life through her music and her introspective observations can’t help but seep into your subconscious. At times, you feel slightly awkward – her lyrics make you feel like you’re eavesdropping on something intensely personal. Which is exactly the idea. With lyrics such as “Let me, let me escape you, Untie these heart strings from you “- ‘Catch Me’ is no exception. She says about the track:
‘Catch Me’ is about addiction, in this case being addicted to a person so much so that overtime you try to get away, you simply can’t. You can’t live without them. It’s a song with a bittersweet backbone. It’s about the idea of Love, but some types of Love can become unhealthy when they crossover into a form of addiction / obsession & dependency.
The writing and production of the song consisted of Ross Lowe, Kaz & Luke Fitzpatrick and Karan Kashyap who all help build a hushed tapestry of complementary sounds. A sophisticated contrast of softness, vulnerability and tenacity – definitely personal and delicately portrayed. The track embodies all the rich shades of colour of her life experiences to a superb blurred electronic dance backdrop. Or as Swaati puts it:
The music alongside the smooth vocals represent this sort of rollercoaster adventure, fun and yet dangerous. It lures you in to let go and just enjoy the moment of ecstasy…
Soulful and yearning – yet powerfully bittersweet, ‘Catch Me’ lures you voyeuristically into the very heart of addictive love.
