I first heard of Kate Nash early last year when Lily Allen posted a bulletin telling all her myspace friends to check her out. I did and didn’t really think much of it. Similarly ‘Birds’ and ‘Caroline Is A Victim’ passed me by without much interest.
Today on the show we played Kate’s new single, her debut on fiction (an imprint of polydor) – “Foundations” – and finally I begun to see what the fuss is all about. Despite being 3 years younger than Lily, Kate sounds like a more grown up version of her famous friend. “Foundations” is in a different league to her last single, but I’m unsure whether it will break through because of the Lily Allen similarities. Her almost identical accent and cheeky chatty style will certainly get the Lily haters despairing.
“Foundations” is out in June. I love the video, especially as it makes me think of something Rod would make.
