New Noise: Kate Nash

on Sunday, February 14, 2010
Another day, another reinvention. I'm getting a little bored of it all really. Not that I could ever have envisaged Kate Nash's turn. Maybe this is what happens when you have a minor indie celebrity (Ryan from The Cribs) as your boyfriend. Certainly, she's updated her "look"....although perhaps not in a favourable direction. I think one Ida Maria is plenty really.

New track 'I Just Love You More', available for free download on Kate's website, has come out of the leftfield. To call it divisive would be stating the bloody obvious but judging from my Twitter feed, it's almost 50/50 as to whether you'll love this or absolutely hate it. I'm a fan.

This isn't the Nash of old - no more piano pop. Instead, this is a Le Tigre-meets-PJ Harvey punk anthem, wailing and yelping its way to your ears. Throw in some strings and repetitively minimalist lyrics and you're not sure if it's a complete mess or not. But maybe you're like me. Maybe you like things a bit messy.

The forthcoming Bernard Butler-produced album is out on the 19th April in the UK.
