In the middle of July, Catey Shaw's "Brooklyn Girls" became (for better or worse) the talk of the Internet, as the hipster salute went viral and scooped up over 300,000 YouTube views. Her follow-up single is titled "Human Contact" and previews the aptly titled The Brooklyn EP, due out on Sept. 9; hear the new single and watch its new video exclusively on Billboard.com:
Instead of once again celebrating Brooklyn, Shaw turns her attention to a budding, too-loud romance: "If you just shut that pretty mouth, we'll forget what the fight's about," she croons. The video for "Human Contact" is another colorful clip from the singer-songwriter, who this time smashes a croquet club and curls her hair with yellow bananas -- a hipster move if there ever was one.
"This release is extra special to me -- it was my first time co-directing a video," says Shaw. "I was very happy to be working with my good friend, and extremely talented director, Bryan Russell Smith. We kept the budget low by putting in weeks of pre-production, making the sets and most of the wardrobe ourselves. I'm really proud of this one."
Shaw's Brooklyn EP will feature seven songs, including the previously released singles "Brooklyn Girls" and "Revolution." Pre-order the release here.
