Ralphie, Nicky, Tommy. Purveyors of punk pop for now people. Bringing buoyant bursts and big boppers. Like life itself, the songs come at you fast. Hooks are immediate. Melodies soaring. Rhythms driving.
The band began in fits and starts (or was it fizz and suds?) several years ago, with Ralphie & Nicky occasionally wandering into a practice space together. Songs were half written, then wholly forgotten. Beers consumed and discarded.
By the end of 2018, Tommy was roped into the mix, and suddenly, Cathedral Ceilings was a real band. Fueled by Ralphie’s infinite trove of riffs and melodies (and more beer), the songwriting was easy, free, and joyous. Like being teens in a band again, and the songs came just as quick.
Two of these songs make up the debut single from Cathedral Ceilings, out on the venerable Dromedary Records. “Bonfire of the Manatees” and “Creme Brûlée” are a duo of energetic, jumpy tunes steamrolling underneath Ralphie’s soaring vocals. Come get hooked; there’s plenty more where this came from.
