Brisbane duo Syrup (a.k.a Harry Pratt and Henry Anderson) have an ability to craft infectious bops that penetrate your system and instantly make you feel good. Full bodied and littered with grooves and hooks, the plucky guitar is a stand out in a track that has all the hallmarks of disco, dance and pop.

With a name like Syrup, you instantly expect delicious tunes that will stick in your head all day long. Luckily, the Brisbane alt-pop duo always deliver on that front. Their early noughties electro pop style is unmistakable, with Catch Your Flow following in a very similar vein to Moloko‘s ‘Sing It Back (Boris Dlugosch Mix)’. They also offer up a more modern take on sticky hooks, as we’ve heard in revered tracks like Miike Snow‘s ‘Animal‘ or Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’ The animated video will keep ASMR-addicts happy – it’s visually soothing and hypnotic to watch, while maintaining the retro-pop vibe of the track.

At its root, the song explores the precariousness of thought. The patterns of thinking, moods and mental dispositions which we all face… It’s the awkward questions that arise from not understanding why or how. The rhetorical and uncomfortable consultations we place ourselves in everyday. It’s also how we escape this, the process of discovering and evolving … 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.
