The best thing to come out of Scandinavia in recent years (and that’s saying a lot!), and one of the best and most exciting live acts around Kate Boy have unveiled yet another new track. Following August’s Self Control this new single is the second to come from their hotly tipped début album, which we have been looking forward too ever since Northern Lights. Open Fire has us more eager than ever.
Wearing that Kate Boy ‘sound’ on it’s sleeve, Open Fire powers along on those post-EBM rhythmic synths and high energy percussive arpeggios forming an irresistibly compulsive soundtrack for Ms. Akhurst’s imposing and passionate performance. Managing to maintain a balance between being hard hitting, grinding alt-Pop and, at the same time, being funky as hell; Kate Boy seem to have found a sweet spot in Pop that no-one else has been able to get right in a long time. Open Fire is another instant anthem from Kate Boy, we can;t wait for this release.
