Bands to keep a watch out for in the future: #10: Kate Nash

By on Sunday, 29th July 2007 at 7:26 pm

Kate NashRecently garnering a lot of attention in the British press, Kate Nash is being touted as one of our brightest stars of the future. Current single “Foundations” has been a staple of the UK charts for the last couple of weeks and her forthcoming album “Made of Bricks by Kate Nash” has been rush released to come out next Monday, 6th August.

The 20 year old has been described by many as a “Lily Allen wannabe”. However, after listening carefully you realise that lyrically she is much more than just another Lily Allen. Her dry humour, mixed with her accent adds together to make something that is a tiny bit more special than just another cookie cutter Avril Lavigne or James Blunt.

“Foundations” has cemented her in the British public’s mind, with witty lyrics (who can forget the infamous ‘You said I must eat so many lemons ’cause i am so bitter. I said “I’d rather be with your friends mate ’cause they are much fitter.”‘) and her instantly reconisable style (the missing Pipette anyone?)

Either way that you look at it, Kate Nash is here to stay. She’s going to be the solo female voice of the summer, and is sure to be casting infection tunes around the UK for years to come.
