HAVE FAITH WITH KATE NASH THIS CHRISTMAS AVAILABLE DECEMBER 10, 2013 VIA DINE ALONE RECORDS
(December 2, 2013– Toronto, ON) – Fresh off of sold out tours in Europe and the US, platinum-selling British starlet and renowned ‘Indie Queen’, Kate Nash will release her first Christmas EP entitled Have faith with Kate Nash this Christmas on December 10th via Dine Alone Records in Canada.
Featuring all-girl three-piece punk band, The Tuts, the EP’s five songs celebrate Kate Nash’s signature style – a fun and catchy blend of punk and pop, with hints of 60s undertones punctuating elements of a cappella, and for this EP, some traditional instrumentals. What is definite is that it’s not your typical Christmas collection. In place of a warm-hearted, feel-good opening track, “I Hate You This Christmas” will no doubt be the Christmas anthem dedicated to cheating boyfriends and bad best friends. Heavy guitar overlaid with Kate’s trademark vocals, will have the Girl Gang singing along to, “yeah it’s Christmas once again, but you’re f—kin’ one of my friends,” all season long.
The track “Faith” made its first appearance in 2012 and was featured exclusively on Tavi Gevinson’s Rookie magazine. A nod to the 60s, the slow melody, replete with a jingling bell start will score points with her global fan base, as will ‘Tuts Christmas Is In The Air’. It plays between soft 60s-esque music and vocals and ramped up guitars and drums. If you’re not jumping around the Christmas tree to this one, you haven’t listened to it properly.
Traditionalists will flock to Kate’s dreamy acoustic rendition of “Silent Night” and “Auld Lang Syne” backed by understated bagpipes and subtle percussion is holiday perfection.
“I just love Christmas and the old fashioned tradition of writing original material for it,” says Kate, “I sing “Auld Lang Syne” every New Years and I love it so much, I really like the sensation of a New Year starting. I chose “Silent Night” because my mum always plays hymns around the house and it’s such a beautiful traditional song.”
Kate has much to celebrate as the holidays approach. 2013 has been an incredible year; she released the acclaimed album Girl Talk, along with several singles and EPs this year. There have been tent-filling shows at Reading and Leeds festivals, a triumphant homecoming to Shepherds Bush Empire and Kate has toured extensively across North America.
She is now starring in Brit flick Powder Room alongside Jaime Winstone, Sheridan Smith and Oona Chaplin.
Kate will return to the U.S later this year to begin co-writing a Broadway musical based on the songs from her current album Girl Talk. Entitled Only Gold, the production will include tracks from across her career to tell the story of a maharaja in 1920s Paris.
