It's now seven years since Kate released her first single, ‘Caroline's a Victim’. Her childhood growing up in Harrow, north London, seems a distant dream. She was a MySpace phenomenon before she even had a record deal. Such was the excitement about her debut album that ‘Made of Bricks’ was released two months ahead of schedule. It went straight to number one.
2013 will see Kate release her third studio album. ‘Girl Talk’ is a bold, passionate and personal album. An immediate reaction to the world around her. “I wrote songs really quickly. They are ballsy. You can hear the anger. I've learned a lot about people. I used to be really naive and trust people too much. Not any more.”
Kate says that ‘Girl Talk’ is a kind of mission statement about what it's like to be a woman. "Working with an all-girl band has been incredibly liberating as well as being brilliant fun. I really believe in women being able to be whatever they want to be. We don't have to be one dimensional. I can be sensitive. I can be angry. I can do a song that is screaming and then add a backing vocal that is really sweet. I've never been one thing.”
