Cat & Calmell, a new pop duo from Sydney, have released the music video for their debut single, ‘Dumbshit’, today (October 22).
Produced by Alex Wildwood, the track first hit streaming services on October 1. The duo’s debut single is a soaring R&B anthem celebrating their past mistakes, with a huge screaming chorus. Watch its video clip below:
The single is actually the first song the duo wrote together in their first session almost two years ago.
“It’s about being in your youth and not taking anything seriously; enduring the repercussions of doing dumb shit and just copping it on the chin,” the band say in a press statement.
The duo – Catherine Stratton and Calmell Teagle – first met in an after-school program for developing artists, following Cat’s move to Sydney from China as a young teenager.
Over on her YouTube channel, Cat released a behind-the-scenes vlog last month of the two in a recording session, where they also shared snippets of forthcoming, unreleased music.
This is hardly either Cat or Calmell’s introduction to the Australian public, with Cat having a substantial social media following across various social media platforms.
In addition, Calmell also recently linked up with other Aussie musicians like Becca Hatch, Lil Treezy and Latifa Tee for a Nike campaign.
