Covet’s ‘Catharsis’ Was Created To Uplift And Transport The Listener

Indie band Covet have released new album, catharsis, which is out now via Triple Crown Records. In advance of the album, the Bay Area trio released a pair of videos that capture their enthusiasm, including “firebird,” and “lovespell.” Both videos were directed by Tom Flynn.

Catharsis is available on a variety of limited-edition vinyl variants, as well as on CD, and digitally. A collection of catharsis-themed merch is also on-sale now.

Yvette Young says of the album:

We did a lot of risk-taking on this album. I try to follow what excites me without heeding anybody’s expectations. I’m leaning into melodies, tones, and textures and trying to use them to transport listeners. The whole concept is escaping into a fantasy realm where the songs depict different characters and their own worlds. Each song is like their theme song. It’s mostly instrumental, but when you close your eyes, I hope people will be transported into the character’s story. 

Music has always been escapism for me and a great source of therapy. My hope for this music is that it will take people somewhere and stir their imaginations, or at the very least, make them feel something. I named this record ‘catharsis’ because the word to me feels like a triumphant exodus. No matter the dire circumstances, music is one of those things that I’ve always needed to create to survive (in all senses of the word), and time and time again, I turn to guitar and songwriting as my outlet to uplift and feel like I have control over something in this chaotic universe.

Fan interaction has been a cornerstone of Covet’s career, with the band slated to continue that tradition as they mark the new album’s arrival with both a Reddit AMA (r/music) on Monday, April 10th, 2023 at 1 pm Pacific/4 pm Eastern as well as a virtual gallery exhibit showcasing fan photos, videos, artwork, and other artistic mediums. The catharsis gallery opens its virtual doors on May 4th, 2023. Fans can submit their artwork here:
