Katie Kate is a force. A dark horse with an extensive classical background, she channels her quirky, emotive lyrics through the lenses of hip hop by blending the swagger, attitude, and rhythms with an undeniable pop appeal. Her first album, Flatland, was lauded as "a stellar introduction to an exceptional multifaceted talent." (KEXP). Now, with 'Nation', Kate refines her rhythmic complexities and idiosyncratic production into a bolder palette of emotional geography and musical complexity. 'Nation' is pop song style and filthy rap verses colliding across the landscape of Americana. Musically, Nation highlights the collision between digital and analog. The music and beats were composed by Kate, with live elements and analog synths added to flesh out the material. Live drumming was incorporated with vintage synths and re-amping. This parallels Kate's own duality as a classical musician and an electronic composer, intertwining the two worlds into something much more than the sum of its parts. 'Nation' is the result of this contradictory raw new landscape, brimming with harshness, optimism, and attitude. The release is packaged with a 5.5"x7.75" 21-page colour art book with lyrics, credits, hand-written notes and sketches by the artist.
