Kate Boy's Premieres New Single, 'Self Control'
"Self Control," the first single off Kate Boy's highly anticipated debut full-length, is streaming now at Pitchfork (http://bit.ly/1tWmvnh). Details on the upcoming, self-produced release are coming soon. The Stockholm-based trio spoke to SPIN in February about their writing and recording process (http://go.spin.com/1eaKBpW) and will preview the new track at various international appearances, including a recent sold-out show at The Lexington in London. See below for touring details.
Kate Boy is Kate Akhurst, Hampus Nordgren and Markus Dextegen. Originally from Australia, Akhurst moved to Stockholm in 2011 with a vision for her music that she'd been unable to find. A chance encounter united Akhurst with rising Swedish producers Nordgren and Dextegen, and the three immediately realized the music that each of them wanted to make aligned perfectly. Debut single "Northern Lights" was the first song that came of their meeting.
