Catherine Moan drops hypnotic new song "Drop It" - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

Catherine Moan ushers you to a dream world on her new song, “Drop It!,” mixing the haze of electro-pop into an alcohol-addled party anthem. The follow up to her cover of Depeche Mode’s “Fools,” the Philly area artist wears her 80s influences on her sleeve for the third single from her upcoming album, Chain Reaction, which will be out via Born Losers in September.

Absolutely ethereal, the song feels like something you could melt straight into. Whether it’s the flashing lights of a club or your own private party, it makes you want to dance. The product of digital love and spending the last year stuck in her bedroom, it embodies the quarantine nostalgia for nightlife. As Moan commands, “lose control of your mind” over a hypnotic groove, you can’t help but fully surrender. With a surreal build-up, it’s an out-of-body experience when the beat finally does drop. Hitting you all at once, her glittering synths and futuristic drum machine are a rush of adrenaline. 

In a press release, Moan said “’Drop it!,’ is about a burst of desire to drop what you’re doing and go out dancing with someone you love. I wrote it in the middle of the winter of the pandemic trying to channel the harsh isolation into an exciting and catchy dance song.” 

Moan will also be playing a sold-out show with Total Rubbish on June 15 at Ortliebs; she just added an August 13th show at Underground Arts with Grace Vonderkuhn, They Are Gutting A Body Of Water, and More. Get more details at the XPN Concert Calendar and stream the video below.
