Hot Press Track of the Day: VerseChorusVerse, 'Category'

The former And So I Watch You From Afar member will have you gagging for a sun holiday

Today's Track of the Day is 'Category,' a song from the third album of Tony Wright's VerseChorusVerse, outro.

No video has ever so fiercely proclaimed its artist's DIY ethics quite like this one.

The song itself was written by Wright, who was also on vocals and guitar. Wright used an iPhone to direct and edit the video, which was shot on a whim in Casalittico, Italy.

The song's lo-fi beginnings suit the video's film-grain effect, which in turn compliments the footage of the mountain village it was shot in.

With the help of Andrew Coles on Drums and Herb Magee's uplifting base, the song builds into a summery pop bop that makes you wish you were the one prancing around an older-than-Rome Italian village as locals enjoy their siestas.
