Although you may know her better as one half of The Pierces (whose 2011 album You & I is one of my personal favourites), L.A.-based singer Catherine Pierce is currently pursuing a solo career as CAT.

Earlier this year, she shared the first taster from her new solo venture, 'You Belong To Me', and now she's back with the smooth, yet powerful 'Weapon of War' - which relies heavily on her warm and hypnotic vocals.

The synth-flavoured slow-burner deals with her experience of going through an abusive relationship - something which can be felt in every word. Cathartic in its own right, 'Weapon of War' inhabits a universe where sadness and pain are overcome through one's overwhelmingly beautiful work. Stream it below.
