"It was a rainy day in January or February at about 9pm after class, and I'd gone to a co-write at my friend Amy Peters' house. My friend Jordan Xidas and I sat down writing to a hook about how "we'll be the gossip, the talk of the town," and it was just not flowing. We decided to stop it and talk about life.
We started talking about different relationship problems, and for me, I had just gotten out of a relationship with a guy that I dated for way too long! I thought he was so perfect, and put him up on a pedestal, and didn't see the flaws that he had that were hurting me because I was so blinded by a puppy love crush. So it's really about that, and how for one blind moment, everything was perfect."
- Kat Saul on "Iconic"
Kat Saul may have grown up singing country music as a Nashville native, but this girls new sound is anything but! Prolific in her songwriting, Kat is releasing a string of singles leading up to her debut pop EP in the fall. "Iconic," the first single, is out now and has the sound and production to fit right in with today's hit radio hits. Nashville Offbeat is excited to see where this bubbly 19 year old goes with her new persona! Follow her on Facebook, and check out her latest single, "Body Language," released Friday, July 7th!
I love how stripped down this song is. In a world full of over-production and being as loud as you can, “Sidewalk” is an easy-breezy breath of fresh air.
“What’d You Think” was performed, recorded, and shot live on Delmarva Life TV in Maryland earlier this year. I found their performance to be full of passion, emotion, and life.
For instance, the band laments the trials and tribulations of dating a vegan: …
You’re in the sky, grazing the moon with your hands, rearranging stars, and smiling wistfully. This is where my mind takes me when I hear “Are You The Girl” by Kira Hooks, just released on April 17th, 2018.
With a little bit of sass, blues, and rock n’ roll, Lauren Anderson is bringing us a song reminiscent of early Grace Potter. Released March 30th, “The Game” is a head-banger that will pump you up and empower your day!
Released on April 17th, I find “Body Language,” to be timeless, sexy and beautifully produced, and think that you will too.
Capturing the essence of drama, the pain of heartbreak, and the freedom of letting go, “Strangers” is a beautifully written song about the romantic tragedy of losing a part of your identity in someone else.
He’s waiting for a call from someone in an emptiness that extends beyond his physical being.
One of my favorite songs on the album, “Just Wanna Meet You”, puts into words the longing we all feel to find someone to live our lives with. The idea that there’s a person out there meant just for you is one that brings comfort to all the hopeless romantics of the world.
The video features the band playing in Somer’s garage/rehearsal space, cut with kaleidoscope-like outdoor and driving scenes, giving an overall feeling of psychedelic displacement and trippiness (you may want to break out the sticky-icky for this one, gang).
