Something For Kate have been a bit absent of late. Their previous album, Desert Lights, came out in 2006; it’s a length of time that generally becomes grounds to start thinking about whether or not a band is no more. Turns out, they’re still going, which is brilliant as I’m still as much in love with the name of the group as I previously was: yes, past self, it is still very much an ‘awwww’ reaction!
Anyway, they have a new album out now, and though I haven’t had a chance to listen to it yet, the first single off it is just lovely. It starts off sounding a bit like the hipster/indie track of the month, but it soon re-establishes the wonderful poetic mood that their music has always evoked for me. It’s also pretty rockin’!
