The Cathode Ray – Heightened Senses DL/Stream/Video single

  • Heightened Senses

Taken from the "Heightened Senses" album, the infectious title track digs deeper into the more positive side of The Cathode Ray, previously hinted at on earlier singles such as “Mind” and “This Force Of Nature”. Simultaneously a simple ode to the joy of life and a love song, chief songwriter Jeremy Thoms sings of “living in the here and now” and how “this energy inside” gives him “heightened senses, intensified and true, magnified for you”, all set to an insanely catchy slice of skewed perfect pop which The Cathode Ray do so well. Think Portugal The Man meets The Strokes via Pharrell and OutKast.

The Cathode Ray are: Neil Baldwin: Bass - Phil Biggs: Lead & Rhythm Acoustic & Electric Guitars - Steve Fraser: Lead & Rhythm Electric Guitars - David Mack: Drums & Percussion - Jeremy Thoms: Lead & Backing Vocals; Keys; Lead & Rhythm Acoustic & Electric Guitars; Bass
