Kate Teague Shares New Single, GILLY, Readies Fall Tour With Julie Odell

Kate Teague Shares New Single, GILLY, Readies Fall Tour With Julie Odell

Oxford, Mississippi's Kate Teague is gearing up for her North American tour and today is releasing her newest offering, the yacht-meets-slacker rock, "Gilly". An immensely personal song with ubiquitous emotional underpinnings Teague says that "a loved one of mine was going through a difficult time while living away from most of her friends/family. I wrote this in an effort to make sense of the pain she was experiencing, and to console her considering I couldn't be there for her in person."

Teague has released two impeccable singles so far in 2018 with a debut release on Muscle Beach Recordings slated for 2019. Kate Teague's most recent single, "Good To You," is an upbeat summer jam, guided by Teague's precise, emotive guitar lines and a disco-infused rhythm section. The track is a rumination on our self-examination, specifically when it bites us in the ass. Teague explains that "Good To You" is about her "struggle with comparing myself as a partner to other people as partners, and relaying my frustration at inopportune times... like at a wedding." "Good To You" follows on the heels of her debut single, the laid-back slacker "Low Life" that was released earlier this year, that first showcased Teague's incredible, raw, soaring, emotion-packed vocals.

There's something in a great voice that can wake you up to living, that can make distance-the distance between here and then, between memory and lack of faith-seem less terrible. Kate Teague's got one of those voices. It's a cathedral of enchantments. A pre-dawn glow.

Recorded at Delta-Sonic Sound in Memphis, what's clearly captured here is a performer with an intransigent spirit. Teague, originally from Mobile, Alabama and currently living in Oxford, Mississippi, sings and plays rhythm guitar, and she's backed by Kieran Danielson on guitar, Adam Porter on bass, Gabriel Hasty on keys, and Ian Kirkpatrick on drums - they bring a floating feeling to Teague's songs.

Teague's songs are honest and frank, and they avoid drama. They're quiet in a restless way, absorbent, they dream of you while you dream of them. They move movingly. They host a widening brightness. There's no easy this-sounds-like-that to hand over (though I'd say Teague stuns and shimmers most like Dolores O'Riordan and Hope Sandoval). These songs are starlight. They punch a ticket on the best carnival ride. They're long shadows in the grass. They generate their own power.

Teague's debut album will be released on Muscle Beach Records in early 2019
