Cat Be Damned Announce Daydreams in a Roach Motel, Out May 20, Stream “Soft Collision” Now

Richmond’s own Cat Be Damned has recently stepped into the role of Joy Void Recording’s newest signing. To commemorate this signing, Cat Be Damned has announced their first release with the label, Daydreams in a Roach Motel, out May 20th. The record can be pre-ordered here

The first track from the impending release, “Soft Collision” is available to stream below. The track keeps with Cat Be Damned’s lo-fi, ethereal, almost melancholic sound, with Stereogum calling the track “an evocative lullaby, sleepy and warm”.

Erik Phillips is Cat Be Damned, and with his initial release explores weighty themes such as social anxiety and a secular perspective on Christianity. Moderately and concisely recorded throughout his Richmond apartment and his parents’ kitchen while exploring such topical and global themes is the perfect indication of Cat Be Damned’s ambition and ideals.

Phillips takes a great deal of influence from his upbringing and life in Richmond, VA and its distinctive lack of a music scene, calling Cat Be Damned a “very Virginia-centric project”. A tracklist for Daydreams in a Roach Motel as well as cover art can be found below.
