Never one to disappoint, Kate Nash’s triumphant return sounds like nothing else around right now: a hypnotic bass guitar riff sets the scene on the title track for new EP ‘Death Proof,’ eventually revealing itself as a wicked Dick Dale & His Del-Tones meets Debbie Harry dirty club track. The EP will be released on November 19th through Dine Alone Records and is available for free by pre-ordering her third album titled ‘Girl Talk’ – due for release early next year – via Pledge Music
Whilst recording in LA, Kate has honed a new sound that she developed from using the bass guitar as the centrepiece of her writing. Despite this being new territory creatively for Kate, her undeniable and unconventional lyricism is stamped all over it. The EP also includes a new take on The Kinks’ classic “All Day and All of The Night,” which she transforms into a grunge lament.
Kate has been busy working on her forthcoming third album for the past twelve months. She’s also been performing with her all-female band to sell-out-crowds across the country, including a jubilant slot at this year’s Bestival. In 2010 Kate set up ‘Rock n Roll for Girls After-School Music Club’ to inspire teenage girls to develop their songwriting and create their own music. On December 1st a group of these students, from participating schools across the UK who have been part of the project, will perform at the ‘End of Year Gala’ at the Queen Elizabeth Hall at the Southbank Centre in London.
