LA based boy band, The Catching release brand new video today for their recent single “Lock That Door”. The single was produced by Matt Squire who has collaborated with Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez and Panic! At The Disco. The Catching are slated to release their new EP ‘Distance’ in June 2018.
“The inspiration behind Lock That Door lyrically comes from a first experience of being in a manipulative relationship and the vast emotions that come with an abusive relationship. It’s about the two people promising each other things they can’t deliver and evading honesty. It’s so easy to get caught up in the moment and say something that makes the other person happy, but when circumstances are tough and you’re put on the spot, it doesn’t always go as planned. It was easy to sit down and write because of how close the circumstance is to us. Love can be amazing and frustrating all at the same time. Sonically, we looked to some hip-hop to inspire the groove and integrated that with our rock side when we worked with Matt Squire back in September of 2017.”
The Catching met at a young age while performing together in a local New Jersey music programs. They quickly realized they share an amazing chemistry and a common vision. Ultimately, The Catching was formed in 2014. The video to accompany the single showcased all of their common visions very clear.
"We started in downtown LA at this old warehouse to capture the performance. Once we got that, we drove over to a sick 60’s style house off of Sunset Blvd in West Hollywood to capture the storyline. What makes this video different is that we made the story side more abstract. It’s left up to interpretation, which is cool. We were more hands-on with this video and are happy with the result. Shout out to our director Josh Sikkema. He’s the man."
The Catching released their first EP, "Teenage Fiction Part 1," in 2016 and toured throughout the US, gaining a national fan base along the way. MTV.com called The Catching one of the "9 Boy Bands that can fill the void of One Direction's Indefinite Hiatus.
