Kate Boy made their mark in the UK last year with the release of ‘Self Control’ and ‘Open Fire’, now the Stockholm based alternative electro poppers are returning with the release of their new single ‘Higher’ on 27th April via Fiction Records.‘Higher’ is the latest single to be taken from Kate Boy’s highly anticipated debut album, set for release through Fiction Records later this year. ‘Higher’ sees Kate Boy’s ultra-slick production, bellowing bassline and red-blooded beats provide a powerful backline for Kate’s melodic mantra to rise above, building a definitive narrative throughout the band’s phenomenal new release. “’Higher’ for us is about evolving to a higher ground where everybody is equal, no matter who you are, what you believe in or who you love. A fundamental human right that everyone deserves all over the world.” says Kate Boy.
Kate Boy are a Stockholm based trio (Kate Akhurst, Hampus Nordgren and Markus Dextegen) who have been making waves across the globe, armed with their effortlessly catchy electronic beats and sultry vocal hooks. After signing to Fiction Records last year Kate Boy have been in the studio writing and recording their self-produced debut album, following up on their critically acclaimed tracks ‘Northern Lights’, ‘The Way We Are’ and ‘In Your Eyes’ which received praise from the likes of SPIN, V Magazine, Vogue and Pitchfork.
Last year saw Kate Boy electrify audiences across Europe with their remarkable live shows including London shows at The Lexington and XOYO as well as various shows throughout the UK, rest of Europe and a phenomenal set at Secret Garden Party. Kate Boy are returning to the live circuit this month for a string of shows at SXSW Festival (Texas, USA) and The Great Escape (Brighton, UK).
