British award-winning singer-songwriter, actress and activist, Kate Nash, returns today with the release of “Misery”, her first new music in 18 months. Offbeat, yet bittersweet, “Misery” is a total reflection of the feeling of quarantine.
Speaking about the new track, Kate reveals “I definitely went through depression. For the most part of the year, I just didn’t have the energy and I was kind of lethargic and very lackluster. Rather than fighting that, I leaned into it. It’s about the trauma: the trauma of everything changing.”
Kate Nash explains: “I feel like there was a live streaming diarrhea that was happening at the beginning of quarantine where everyone was producing content like crazy from their living rooms. My living room is a home, it’s not a set. There’s only so much I can do to make it look good. There’s something charming about it, for sure, but as a performer, I was thinking, ‘What can I do that would make this more interesting for my audience?’ We’ve been in people’s intimate spaces, and I’m gonna go safely out of there.”
