Oxford, Mississippi singer-songwriter Kate Teague released her eponymous debut EP late last year to great acclaim. She’s not resting on her laurels though, as you can tell from new track The Temporary.
Now based in The Big Easy, Teague has added hints of electronica to her previously more organic, Americana sound. Her voice still retains in delightful indie-meets-country tone, giving extra frisson to the dreamy, rainy feel to the song.
Kate says about the song, “I wrote this song when I first started to listen to a lot of experimental artists like Colleen and Jenny Hval, so I was beginning to play around with drum and synth loops. I also wrote this right before a massive transition in my life (which I’m still very much experiencing), but those feelings of hindrance and uneasiness about the future have taken on a new meaning for me during this pandemic.”
The Temporary is out now via Muscle Beach Records to stream or download on all major digital outlets, including Spotify. Be sure to check out Kate on her Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter socials for news about the artist and her music.
Bandcamp sales from the track go to New Orleans charity, The Roots of Music, which operates an after-school program that provides academic tutoring and music mentoring for at-risk middle school students ages 9–14. You can support The Roots of Music by donating to their GoFundMe page.
