Nearly twenty years into her ever-evolving career, London and LA-based, Brit award-winning singer, songwriter, actor and activist Kate Nash has seen it all, from finding huge commercial success in 2007ʼs hit single Foundations, reaching number 1 in the UK, rocking the world as an independent punk artist and even starring in HBOʼs hit wrestling drama, GLOW. Nash isn't finished shape-shifting just yet; in June, she'll release her fifth album, 9 Sad Symphonies, under the legendary label Kill Rock Stars. Inspired by old Hollywood, vintage musicals and a desperate quest to find beauty in a rotten world, it's another sonic shift following her “rage-y” recent output. Two things fueled that moment of the album's creation: her work on Only Gold, a musical Nash co-created, and a global pandemic that curtailed filming on the fourth season of GLOW and sent Nash – and everyone – into a tailspin. These melodic, bright-on-the-surface but deeply layered songs started to emerge out of creative scenarios that had been completely changed by the pandemic. On 9 Sad Symphonies, Nash has taken another huge step towards cementing her place as one of Britain's most unique and fearless talents.
