Led by siblings Joe and Helen Hammill, Cattle & Cane’s sophomore album ‘Mirrors‘ was released on Friday 5th May 2017. Produced by Luuk Cox at ICP Studios in Brussels and Temple Studios in Malta, and mastered by Frank Arkwright (Arcade Fire, Coldplay, New Order) at Abbey Road Studios in London, ‘Mirrors’ features ten tracks that effortlessly showcase Cattle & Cane’s ability to shift even the hardest of hearts with their perfect, soaring harmonies.
Recent support slots with Brian Wilson, Tom Odell and The Head and The Heart have helped Cattle & Cane build on their loyal and passionate following – a fan-base that propelled ‘Mirrors’ into the top 20 of the Official UK Independent Album Chart back in May thanks, in part, to a successful PledgeMusic campaign which reached an impressive 280% of its target.
The past year has been pretty exciting for Cattle & Cane, with Elton John declaring his love for ‘Mirrors’ opener ‘Love On Your Hands‘ on Beats 1 and ‘7 Hours’ picking up numerous radio-plays from long time champion Dermot O’Leary, who previously showcased the band on his ‘Saturday Sessions’ compilation following a live session on BBC Radio 2. ‘7 Hours’ also passed the 1 million streams milestone on Spotify in less than 6 months, while ‘Fool For You’ picked up coverage from Sunday Brunch, Made In Chelsea and The Only Way Is Essex. Furthermore, the video was also playlisted by BT TV and earned the band a live session on Vintage TV.
With extensive support from BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 6 Music and Amazing Radio, Cattle & Cane have been heavily championed by the BBC Introducing team and previously performed on their stages at T In The Park and BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park. They’ve also appeared on Tom Robinson’s BBC Introducing Mixtape a number of times and earlier this year, they were the BBC Introducing Artist Of The Week with tracks syndicated across all BBC regional stations.
They’ve also appeared at acclaimed tastemaker events such as Reeperbahn Festival, Live At Leeds and Evolution Emerging, as well as at some of the UK’s finest boutique and inner city festivals including Cornbury, Deer Shed, Liverpool Sound City, Twisterella, Liverpool Sound City, Stockton Calling and Bingley Music Live.
