Bambie Thug Announces New EP ‘Cathexis’

News of hyperpunk newcomer Bambie Thug's new EP comes alongside the release of two singles and a Halloween show announcement.

Before the arrival of ‘Cathexis’ on October 13, Bambie Thug has shared two hypnotising new singles – ‘Careless’ and ‘Last Summer (I Know What You Did)’.

Speaking about the two new tracks Bambie has said:

“Careless maps the regret I felt for trusting someone with my heart who wasn’t brave enough to hold it. While Last Summer is about those gut feelings you have when you think your partner is cheating on you, and how you’re usually right. Finding other people’s underwear in your bedroom and hearing them say another person’s name during sex only solidified my suspicions. I know what he did.”

Check out ‘Careless’ below:

The first taste of Bambie’s upcoming EP, they have commented on the meaning of ‘Cathexis’ ahead of its release:

“Cathexis is emotional investment in another, being deeply drawn to someone for how they make you feel. Many people who are cathecting will claim they are in love even when they are emotionally neglectful or abusive to a partner. When things aren’t going how they’d like, it is easier for them to wipe their hands clean of things and end the relationship because they were in Cathexis not Love. Love is the will to nurture and support the spiritual wellbeing and growth of another. You cannot
claim to be in love if your actions do not match the definition. This project is about me realising that I was in love and that he was only in Cathexis.”

Following their debut appearance at Download Festival earlier this year, Bambie Thug has also announced a headline London show at Hackney’s Oslo on Halloween (October 31), set to feature a host of theatrical performers, cabaret style dancers and actors.
