You might recognize Bruno Catrambone from the Philadelphia based indie-pop band, CRUISR. However, Catrambone has been devoting his time recently to his solo project, Spirit Haus. He began experimenting with home-production as a way to collect demos and piece together ideas during downtime between tours and on the road. What was originally a lo-fi inspired pop pursuit, Catrambone’s interests in self-production and songwriting grew, shifting his vision for the project and recreating how he wanted to pursue it. Looking to refine what he was working on, Catrambone teamed up with Andy States, frontman and brainchild of CRUISR, in hopes of bringing a new life to the songs. Together they produced the first single from a new catalogue of Spirit Haus songs entitled, ‘You Don’t Love Me (Like You Used To)’.
When listening to the track it is interesting note Catrambone’s wide range of sounds between the songs created in CRUISR and the more etherial sound seen in Spirit Haus. Upon the first listen, “You Don’t Love Me (Like You Used To)” appears to remind listeners of the sounds of a more tranquil Tame Impala or Passion Pit. However, Catrambone puts his own twist on the song through his in depth and personal lyricism that allows the listener to relate in a stronger way.
