In just the few years since they've been a band, Catbite has become a household name. Formed in 2018, the Philly-based ska punk band has been showcasing their range, sense of community, and an all around good time since their inception. Pulling from influences such as The Specials and Elvis Costello, they've managed to create their own sound within the genre, one that's musically diverse and something everyone can dance to. Their songs spanning from their self-titled album to their newest album, Nice One, display beautifully constructed layers, seamless harmonies, and catchy yet insightful lyrics, proving to everyone that they're at the top of their game.
We were fortunate to sit down with guitarist/vocalist, Tim Hildebrand and lead vocalist/keyboardist, Brittany Luna to discuss their introduction to ska and the formation of Catbite, their new album, Nice One, ska through the years (are there really "waves?"), and we compare scenes throughout the world and talk about how one shouldn't be afraid to broaden their musical horizon.
