With a platinum-selling debut at just nineteen years old, four studio albums under her belt and a recent acting stint over two series of Netflix’s Glow’, Kate Nash has truly built a career upon 2007’s ‘Foundations’. After a string of releases, such as 2016’s ‘My Little Alien’ and the Agenda EP in 2017, Nash dropped her most recent body of work, Yesterday Was Forever, last April. This was truly a project for, and made possible by the generosity of, her loyal following. This artist maintains her capacity for tastefully unromantic, confrontational lyrics on the record, yet doesn’t shy away from unpicking themes of anxiety and compulsion through tracks including ‘Call Me’ and ‘Drink About You’. Following this, Nash also delivered the angsty anthem, ‘Trash’ in January this year.
Coincidentally, Bank Holiday weekend saw Kate’s contemporary, Lily Allen fill a headlining slot at Bristol’s Love Saves The Day festival. Despite little animosity between them, the pair have historically been subject to extensive pitting. Coupled with the artist’s UK tour kicking off at The Fleece next Thursday, we might speculate: does this signify a second coming of late-noughties indie-electro pop? Kate Nash will play a sold-out show at the Fleece on 6th June.
