CATASTROPHE&CURE have been at the top of their game for almost a decade. Since the release of their debut album Like Crazy Doves – which earned them Austria’s most recognised music prize, the FM4 Amadeus Award – in 2012, the band has been a fixture in the Austrian independent music scene.
In 2020 Catastrophe & Cure are back with their new album “Somewhere Down the Line”. The quintet has rekindled its old love for guitar-driven songwriting, seemingly heading back to their roots, but nonetheless arriving at something completely different. Powerful driving drums meet melancholic vocals and grungy electric guitars while wavering synths bring just the right hint of lo-fi flavour – the work of a band that has found a new confidence and serenity after years of experimentation.
