A couple months ago my sister, She Who Listens To Hipster Music*, gave me a whole bunch of songs by Mumford & Sons, Noir Desir, Temper Trap, Barcelona, and a whole bunch of other artists I’d never heard of, because it wouldn’t be Hipster Music if I had. You’ve already heard how Mumford & Sons has changed my life. Another artist who’s not necessarily my new favorite, but still comes up a lot on my Ipod, is Kate Nash. She’s…unique. Quirky. Brash. English.
Here’s a simple formula for figuring out Kate Nash:
Kate Nash=the sincerity and musical simplicity of Ingrid Michaelson + the fierceness of Ani Difranco.
Imagine a British Ingrid Michaelson who swears a lot when she sings “Far Away.” If you still can’t picture it, here are a couple tunes to get you started.
*She also did an interview for us for Average Fantastic!
