Catherine Gunther to release new EP ‘A Dangerous Game’ on mid 2021.

Somewhere in a small coastal town, hung in mist and shadow, lies the resting place of a once grand romantic love. Now it’s spirit roams free, twisted and haunting, its melancholic heart singing in warning.

A Dangerous Game is a dark and enchanting collection of songs charting different forms of love and destruction; the damage of a toxic lover, the hurt of an unexpected ending, the loss of oneself, the betrayal of a confidant, and the strength that can be found to rise above it all. 

Catherine Gunther is an Alt-Folk/Americana singer-songwriter. Known for her dark and melancholic style she has a way with words that haunt the heart and won’t let go. 

A Dangerous Game is her third EP, following Livin’ On the Land (2015) and Bittersweet Memories (2016). Both were well received and recieved nationwide airplay on community radio. She has also performed a various music festivals including Tamworth Country Music Festival, Urban Country Music Festival and Bleach* Festival as part of the Gold Coast’s Commonwealth Games Cultural Program.

More recently has already released two singles from A Dangerous Game; Buried Alive (2018) and Dangerous (2019). 

Triple J’s Nkechi Anele (Roots N’ All) described Buried Alive (2018) as: 

‘If this song was the weather it would be a thick dense fog – there is something hauntingly captivating and utterly frightening about this track. I’m going to sleep with my nightlight on for the rest of the year now.’ 

Catherine lives in Sydney, Australia.
