To be honest, I don't know that much about Kate Nash. From a cursory internet search, I've discovered that she's a mere 19 years old, and that she loves Harrow (the area of way out North West London where she hails from) and garageband. She also loves cake. There's been a bit of a buzz about her around. From what I can hear, her music is pretty good. She did a live studio session for John Kennedy on Xfm at the beginning of December, and these are the songs she played. Birds and The Nicest Thing are lovely acoustic tunes. Caroline's a Victim is an unusual version of her slightly sleazy electro-rock tune, which is going to be her debut single. It's all good stuff, and no doubt her lyrics, delivered with London-accented glottal stops are going to get her mentioned in sentences with words like 'Lily' and 'Allen' in the very near future. She'll be one of my tips for 2007 next week, for sure.
