Kate Nash releases Foundations on 18th June 2007. It's been a wicked year for young Kate Nash, she fell down the stairs, broke her foot and found that, actually, she could write. Not only that but her voice, both in literal terms and in what she was writing about, hit a chord totally in harmony with her peers. From bedroom/ bedridden noodles to the poignant, sophisticated joshing of 'Foundations' - her first single since signing to Fiction Records, Kate fused poetry with performance and beats and has produced peerless pop confections - all in less than twelve dizzy months.
The video for 'Foundations' can now be found here.
Perhaps it is Kate's unerring ability to articulate the heartbreak of splitting with yet another loser boyfriend or as in her previous single, the independently released, 'Caroline's A Victim' / 'Birds': taking the piss out of a bessie mate or Kate's charming and lopsided slant on declarations of love that have endeared her so quickly to music fans up and down the UK, selling out venues and all the pressings of 'Caroline' on pre-orders alone.
Not only here but in the US Miss Nash has translated; midwestern school girls have been making home videos to tracks such as 'Merry Happy' and writers from France have called from their holidays in China all in an attempt to be closer to Kate.
'Foundations' could truly be the rock solid base of something big. Kate Nash has found her feet.
