Check Out Katterwaul's New Video for "Sound of My Name"

Looks like local rock quartet Katterwaul is getting a little national love this morning, as CMJ premiered the video for the band's new single, "Sound of My Name." The song is one of nine tracks on the band's first full-length LP, 15 Forever, which was released via Commercial Appeal Records in September 2015.

In a recent interview with TW, Brittany Katter, the band's frontwoman and namesake, explained the song's message as such:

Katter references people referring to her music as “sexy” and even how the members of other bands treat her after performing, exploring that idea further in “Sound of My Name.”

“I don’t want to be objectified for expressing my sexuality,” Katter continues, “At first it’s flattering, especially if it’s a band you respect, but then you start to ask, ‘do you know who I am?’ and you start to think of your own self worth like ‘am I taking advantage of my own sexuality?’” While she looks forward to seeing more women taking the lead in shaping the sound of rock ‘n’ roll and becoming less of a spectacle, she admits she sees why it can be a little tough to get up there and take charge. “It’s hard for women to get up on stage. It’s an aggressive statement and aggression is seen as unattractive for women,” she says.
You can watch the groovy, sun-warped video, which was directed by Daniel Martin Diaz, right here, right now:
