MUSIC NEWS: Covet Announce New Album ‘catharsis’

Covet, the Bay area trio fronted by the effervescent, and wholly unique guitar whiz Yvette Young, return with their third album, catharsis, on 7th April.

Young explains:

“We did a lot of risk-taking on this album. I try to follow what excites me without heeding anybody’s expectations. I’m leaning into melodies, tones, and textures and trying to use them to transport listeners. The whole concept is escaping into a fantasy realm where the songs depict different characters and their own worlds. Each song is like their theme song. It’s mostly instrumental, but when you close your eyes, I hope people will be transported into the character’s story. Music has always been escapism for me and a great source of therapy. My hope for this music is that it will take people somewhere and stir their imaginations, or at the very least, make them feel something. I named this record ‘catharsis’ because the word to me feels like a triumphant exodus. No matter the dire circumstances, music is one of those things that I’ve always needed to create to survive (in all senses of the word), and time and time again, I turn to guitar and songwriting as my outlet to uplift and feel like I have control over something in this chaotic universe.”

A preview of the new record has also arrived with the release of firebird, a track that Young says she hopes will take listeners on a “total melodic joyride”.
