New longplayers ready for release
24 August 2023
Artist: KATIE MF
Who: Singer, guitarist and songwriter from London who embraces the anti-conformity, anti-authoritarianism, do-it-yourself ethic of punk rock, effortlessly combining this with
the socially conscious storytelling associated with folk music.
Press info: “FSOE is hard to pin into just one genre, but is at its heart a proper guitar album built on punk principles. The lyrics are thoughtful, the tempo high and the choruses catchy – you’ll want to get your hands in the air and scream along. And maybe have a little cry too. Ultimately this is an album for everyone who likes their guitars loud and their air punched, with driving yet jazz-tinged drums by Tobias Alexandar and top-notch production from Nick Harris.
It was mastered by Tim Debney.”
TUTV: As I had the opportunity to hear the album already, I can tell you it’s a hell
of a puissant punk-rock record. The combination of a tsunami of manic riffage, at
times when the guitars are cranked up I hear Neil Young‘s raw rollicking play, and
Katie‘s monumental voice will overwhelm your ears.
To warm up KATIE MF gave us three singles.
– JAPANSE WHISKEY –
A high-speed punk-rock knockout.
– WORK DRINKS –
An in-your-macho-face uppercut.
– CONFIDENCE CRISIS –
A reflective mid-tempo burner.
Once again, powerhouse guitars and
