The View From Here #11: Catlips

Wednesday 4th November / posted by Chris Wheeldon

The wonderfully wonky dance sounds of Perth's Catlips is the latest Western Australian artist to feature in RTRFM's twelve-part short film series, The View From Here.

Katie Campbell is the mind behind Catlips, one third of dreamy Perth band Kucka and she joined RTRFM in the lush courtyard of Northbridge venue The Bird for The View from Here's eleventh episode.

Catlips has fast garnered both local and national acclaim with an unmistakable aesthetic in both her colourful, dense production and homemade visuals. Said to channel everything from Four Tet to Nicolas Jaar through a neon glazed blender, it is no surprise that this intriguing artist has recently been nominated for WAM's Most Popular New Act of 2015.

Launching her latest EP Casual (released through Perth label Pilerats) in March 2015 with a raucous pool party, Catlips had the opportunity to showcase at Bigsound in September and bring her own flavour of multi-sensory house music to venues across the country.

After her set at Camp Doogs this year, Campbell returned to Perth and released a much awaited single Silver Smoke on October 15. Basslines drip through a haze of European-inspired house sounds, capturing the warm essence of our city, while maintaining her undeniable global appeal.

The View From Here is a twelve-part short film series that launched in November 2014 with support from the Department of Culture and the Arts. The series aims to showcase the wellspring of talent in Western Australia's music scene, across a variety of genres and locations.
