​Cat Burns Battles Against Herself To Open Up On "alone"

​Cat Burns Battles Against Herself To Open Up On "alone"

February 28, 2024

Cat Burns is back with her latest offering, titled "alone", and it sees her continue with her candid, introspective style of songwriting although the track itself suggests that being so open doesn't come as easily as it might seem.

Produced and co-written by Steve Mac, "alone" underpins Cat's heartfelt vocal and honest lyricism with uplifting vocal harmonies and fluttering guitar melodies that create an almost hymnal effect. Confronting her yearning for companionship and the barriers she's trying to overcome to find that loved one, her vulnerability is impressive given that she regrets that she "finds it hard to open up".

Relatability has long been Cat's superpower, and "alone" is another example of her ability to make people feel seen through her lyrics. In all likelihood, we'll be getting a project from the South London singer at some point this year, and this track is a taster of what's to come.
