Katvanger return to Aldora Britain Records with their latest single, a journey into the rootsy universe of blues and more.

'You Hear The Damnedest Things In The Middle Of The Night' is a composition full of pain, betrayal and abandonment, a classic blues song in every sense of the word. Built around gritty and earthy vocals, a beautiful blues guitar, and subtle yet precise rhythm, this is Katvanger exploring themes that bluesmen have sung about for generations. As is always the case with original tunes from this much-loved trio, there are heavy doses of irony and sarcasm. This suits their harmony and swing perfectly, and really builds the song up, layer by layer.

Describing the sound and style, band member Jim Wake says, "Apart from dubious blues, there is slightly twisted roots, counterfeit country and western, and improbable jazz".

Jim says about this specific track, "The tune is a slightly surrealistic, stream-of-conscious piece of theatre. It features insomnia, bad weather, Frank Sinatra, and a woman on the prowl."

For fans of Tom Waits, Randy Newman, The Kinks, Dr John, and J.J. Cale.
