FROM DEBUT ALBUM ONE RELEASED TODAY
“A masterclass in synth voicings…bubblegum electronica at its finest” **** Metro
“One is a fantastic collision of the old and the new, the organic and the digital, the broodingly dark and the glitteringly bright” 8/10, The Line Of Best Fit
“A potent cocktail of unceasingly industrial, foot-stomping electro-pop with boundless kinetic energy” London In Stereo
LIVE @ OSLO HACKNEY, WEDS 2ND DECEMBER
With their critically acclaimed debut album One released today, Swedish-Australian electro-pop duo Kate Boy have announced details of their new single When I Was Young. Premiered last night by Annie Mac on Radio 1, When I Was Young “feels like Peter Gabriel’s emotional juggernaut Don’t Give Up thrown through a computer and out onto a smoky dancefloor” (The Line Of Best Fit). Available now and impacting on January 8th, When I was Young is the fourth single to be lifted from One, following Midnight Sun, Higher, and Self Control. Teaming impeccable melodic hooks with whip-smart production, One is surely a contender for 2015’s best pop album.
Since signing to Fiction Records last year, Kate Boy – Kate Akhurst and Markus Dextegen – have been touring across the globe including sets at SXSW Festival, Secret Garden Party and The Great Escape as well as headline shows at Koko, XOYO, Sebright Arms and The Lexington in London. Kate Boy will return to London next month for a headline show at Oslo Hackney on 2nd December as part of their upcoming US & European tour.
