New Jersey punk veterans, Cathedral Ceilings, have shared the video for Nancy. The band’s upcoming album, Summer Of Misguided Dynamite, out on vinyl via Dromedary Records on 5/27/22, is a collection of high-energy, melodic, punk anthems.
“Nancy” is the second single from the album. The track is a fast-paced, intense banger with super catchy lyrics, and it comes with a bonkers video. Basically the whole package! You can watch/listen the video below.
Here’s what Ralphie Malanga of the band had to say about the track: “This song could have had any woman’s name. Paula. Carla, Megan. But the January 6th insurrection happened when I was writing lyrics, so Nancy got stuck in my head.”
Ralphie riffs at random, something from nothing, exciting but familiar. Tommy and Nicky fall in then lock in. A sudden, spontaneous melody, then a chorus. A song is born, then several. Then finally, a record. This record.
Cathedral Ceilings is in the moment. Songs like fireworks blast off, dazzle, and shimmer into the next eruption. The band had begun in fits and starts (or was it fizz and suds?). Songs were half written, then wholly forgotten. Beers consumed then discarded. But by the end of 2018, Tommy was roped into the mix, and suddenly, They’re A Band!
From that initial big bang arrived the two lathe cut sides, Thanks for the Guitar, Mommy and I’m a Band! By the time they were released, the band had amassed a rockpile of ragers—the ones you’re now hearing.
Recorded and mixed by ace record maker Tom Beaujour and delivered to you via the venerable Dromedary Records, Summer of Misguided Dynamite is unflappable energy and unforgettable hooks. Windows-down, volume-up, high-voltage rock n roll.
Drop the needle, load the disc, tap the screen and blast the feel-good explosion of the summer.
Summer of Misguided Dynamite releases on May 27th, 2022.
