Szczecin, Poland/Berlin, Germany-based duo Catz ‘N Dogz (aka Voitek Taranczuk and Gregory Demianczuk) are in the preparatory stages of releasing Friends Will Carry You Home Too, which is due on their own Pets Recordings label on February 4. But today we have for you the video premier for one of the comp’s tracks by the pair themselves, a real low-slung groover of an electronic-pop tune featuring the vocals of James Yuill entitled “Starlight.”
“We really like James’ songs, especially ‘This Sweet Love (Prins Thomas Sneaky Re-edit),’ which is one of the most beautiful tracks in the world,” Demianczuk told Beatport News. “We contacted James when we were working on an album with Martin Dawson and we recorded one song together for our new project, and we also recorded one song for the Friends Will Carry You Home Too compilation. He definitely brought a lot of soul and positive energy. Thanks to his vocal, the song is complete.
Alex Kiener directed the video below for Catz ‘N Dogz, which seems to trace the steps of a lonely man as he traverses the city in search of a girl in a photo. “We asked Alex to do this video because we really wanted to have Berlin atmosphere in it—night driving, Berlin streets, and lights. We were often listening to this song when we were driving over the city,” Demianczuk explains. It all adds up to a somber, sobering visual accompaniment to one amazing gorgeous track. Have a peek and check back on Beatport next week to hear Friends Will Carry You Home Too in its entirety.
