Cattle & Cane release their euphoric and sun-drenched new single ‘Mexico’ on Friday 14th June 2019 via Believe. Produced by Pete Hammerton (Kylie Minogue, The Shires, Wandering Hearts, Tom Gregory), the confidence and maturity on display delivers an enticing statement of intent from sibling duo Joe and Helen Hammill.
“For the first time ever, we took a step back last year and actually thought about how Cattle & Cane should sound and where we want to take it” says Joe. “Being in a band isn’t always easy and sometimes it can take some time to find your way, but this is undoubtedly the most excited we’ve ever been about sharing new music” he adds.
“We’ve always been ambitious,” explains Helen, “but I think locking ourselves away with Pete [Hammerton] for the last few months has enabled us to create some songs that really justify our ambition” she adds.
Having spent the past couple of years sharing stages with the likes of Tom Odell, Brian Wilson, The Head & The Heart and Nerina Pallot, Cattle & Cane have every right to be ambitious.
Sold-out signs are commonplace at their own headline gigs, including huge statement dates in their native North East at Sage Gateshead and Middlesbrough Town Hall, where a crowd of over 1,200 witnessed a magical performance alongside the Northern Orchestra last June.
Helen and Joe have also appeared at acclaimed international tastemaker events Canadian Music Week and Reeperbahn festival, as well as at some of the UK’s finest boutique and inner-city showcases like Tramlines, Live At Leeds, Liverpool Sound City, Black Deer, Cornbury and Deer Shed.
