The most amazing thing to come out of Australian/Swedish ancestry every, probably, Kate Boy have announced the imminent release of the début album. This is very exciting news. We are very excited. You should be too. Kate Boy have, so far, been consistently of the highest quality, both on record and live, and hopefully the new release, titled The One, will be the culmination of the last couple of years of awesome musical experiments. The LP is due out in November and, if we needed any more reason to be eagerly awaiting it’s release, check out album track Midnight Sun, which Pitchfork premièred on Friday, below.
Midnight Sun rips straight into Kate Boy’s trademark rapid fire percussive synth bass, which is, at the same time, both aggressive and bubbly. Kate Boy serve up yet another storming anthem, we don;t know if they deliberately write songs with live performance in mind but each of their single and EP track so far are pure blistering live gold, including this one. And live Kate Boy definitely have the chops to pull of Midnight Sun’s uplifting symphony and massive powerhouse vocals (which Kate Akhurst can definitely replicate live, boy can she sing!). We are totally ready for The One right flippin’ now!
