Teasin

- February 2nd 2013 24 Comments Screen shot 2013-02-02 at 12.54.21

This month has become a bit of a finger biter. Which is why it makes perfect sense to post a little teaser to my next music video 3AM! You should think of this as a prologue, a teaser. When I watched this video I was both horrified and humoured. It is like so painfully obvious what is about to happen to these two. It is beautiful and sad and hilarious. I feel like the video for 3AM should probably come with a warning for couples on the edge. Like maybe you shouldn’t watch this because it will snap you. Or perhaps you should, maybe a wake up call is needed! Kind of like the feeling couples on the edge might have had when watching Blue Valentine. It’s a little too close to home and a little too much and obvious what you’re supposed to do. It’s like that person in your head that sometimes screams at you for not doing what you’re supposed to “ERRR HELLLO!??? WHAT ARE YOU STILL DOING?!? ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? YOU CAN’T IGNORE THIS LITTLE VOICE IN YOUR HEAD FOREVER??? NOO I AM NOT THE SAME SPIDER ON THE BACK OF BART SIMPSON’S HEAD THE TIME HE THOUGHT HE WAS GUILTY BUT A SPIDER WAS JUST BITING HIM””

That little voice is always there. It’s so ANNOYING! I swear I have lived through so much denial that definitely at the time I would have called hope. I don’t know whether it’s wrong to call it that. Sometimes it’s so hard to tell the difference between hope and denial. anyway.

Back to this month! It is gonna be so friggin exciting and a lot of hard work and eye openers for me which is why I have no nails left. I have been super busy doing promo for the record which feels great, I just want to expose this album to the world in a huge open hearted kind of manor for some reason. I am also going to NY fashion week, watching some shows and also DJING for the wonderful Chloe Moretz’ sweet 16 at the teen vogue party. OMG! can we please invite taylor swift and jennifer lawrence?! I’ll be going to see some of my favourite designers at London FW. We’ve got the listening valentines day do for those of you who bought tickets on pledge, this is shaping up to be super sweet and awesome. I’ll also be throwing a fabulous record release party on march 4th which some of you will be able to win tickets too! And trust me it will be fabulous. I watched sex and the city, plus 1 is the loneliest number, the one where carrie has her book launch party and I was like “RIGHT! I’M CARRIE BRADSHAW AND I WANT A PARTY”. I am also going to Africa with the charity Plan USA, which will be life changing, eye opening and probably painful and beautiful and the most real thing I’ve ever been exposed to. Then I have some shows coming up, I’m playing with the most wonderful Brigitte Aphrodite in Reading and then London and then from there on it’s pretty much Tour central.

Ok so enough blurrr here’s the teaser prologue video I’ve been going on about.

WARNING FOR COUPLES ON THE EDGE. YOU SHOULD TOTALLY WATCH THIS AND GET YOURSELVES IN CHECK.

    Ah bless….. but of course sometimes love just doesn’t work out, no matter how much you think it is going to. Right ?

    Looking forward to the gigs, the album and whatever else 2013 holds for you.

    Oh god I saw Blue Valentine in the cinema and by the end I had completely lost faith in my love life ever existing ha! On another note, such a lovely video. Sounds a bit grim but it reminds me of a really lovely quote by Chuck Klosterman that goes…
    “We all have the potential to fall in love a thousand times in our lifetime. It’s easy. They all count. But there are certain people you love who do something else; they define how you classify what love is supposed to feel like. These are the most important people in your life, and you’ll meet maybe four or five of these people over the span of 80 years. But there’s still one more tier to all this; there is always one person you love who becomes that definition. It usually happens retrospectively, but it always happens eventually. This is the person who unknowingly sets the template for what you will always love about other people, even if some of those lovable qualities are self-destructive and unreasonable. You will remember having conversations with this person that never actually happened. You will recall sexual trysts with this person that never technically occurred. This is because the individual who embodies your personal definition of love does not really exist. The person is real, and the feelings are real-but you create the context. And context is everything. The person who defines your understanding of love is not inherently different than anyone else, and they’re often just the person you happen to meet first time you really, really want to love someone. But that person still wins. They win, and you lose. Because for the rest of your life, they will control how you feel about everyone else.”

    Living in denial is the worst!
    In my case I wasn’t really in a relationship but I was talking to this girl who was also my best friend and after opening up to her about how I felt towards her she said she felt the same way and things were beautiful for a couple of weeks until she hooked up with other girl and long story short I was really really hurt but I couldn’t let her go. I though I could save ‘what we had’ but every day I could feel her losing interest and not fighting even though she was the one that screwed up and I knew I had to stop it and let it go but I couldn’t. Like you say, I had a voice in my head telling me “what the hell are you doing? this is not gonna work!” but it was hard to accept that :(

    Anyway. The video was beautiful and touching and made me tear up. Can’t wait for the actual music video wooo <3

    This video is just amazing. I was actually texting to a guy that im crushing on quite hard at the moment whilst watching this, but he was telling me about how he might start seeing this other guy -insert sound of my heart dropping – but its now prompted me to stop ignoring the hints he is sending my way and stop playing coy and go out and actually tell him ‘HEY! IM INTERESTED IN YOU AS WELL’

    Thanks Kate
    xoxo

    ok kate-
    omg i love you so much babyyy
    everything you do is literally so perfect, this video is the most beautiful thing ive ever seen in my life omfg its so cute
    you cant ever understand how much youve affected my life, i used to be a very depressed chickk, slit my wrists, not eat and all that shit. but your music basically has turned my life around. your lyrics sometimes were sometimes the only thing that’d make me want to hold on to life. your words were the ones that kept me going every day. and i can never be more thankful to you for that because without your music, i dont even know where i’d be at the moment, if i’d even still be here. you are my biggest inspiration and i geniuley think you are the most perfect human. thank you for everything you’ve done and please keep making music for the rest of your life you are fucking amazing.
    im seeing you like next week in reading and brigitte aphrodite’s withh youu and i literally have been counting the days down for a fucking year. im so excited cos i know you’re gonna be perfect.
    i love you. keep doing what you’re doing and have an amazing life, you deserve it xxxx

    Thats proper emitional stuff right there. Everyone that watches that has literally just felt your heart break then thats proberly opened up the flood gate of when they went through the same thing. We’ll that happened to me anyways, which kinda sucked cos no1 wants to re live that time when your heart felt it was about to explode!

    Break ups are shit right? Apperently when your a lad you just have to man up and sleep around where as a woman can cry and eat chocolate with her mates… Prefer to be a woman tbh lol. Everyone has there own process of dealing with things, it takes time which people seem to forget. Im a ex royal marine who still thinks about my ex everyday after 4 years, had one girlfriend since… Maybe one day ill actually move on :-/

    Your a brave lady kate for letting people share them moments with you! Ur a epic artist, down to earth and funny! Also you gave me sweets in hackney attic which makes you even more awesome. Good luck! Were all right behind you x

    Hi I’m Miri and I co promote and host a monthly live music night at The Boogaloo. http://www.groups.to/blue monday It’s a really supportive night and we get a lot of young female artists performing there as well as more established artists trying out new material. I know your busy with touring and promotion at the moment but Just wondered if you fancied coming down one month? It might also be a good opportunity for some of the girls you’ve been working with in schools to perform their material in front of a supportive crowd. Wishing you all the best for the tour. Miri x

    Denial is a dream that hope has already happened and all is well regardless of the truth. For hope you need to be able to face the animilistic and the not so great without running around in a circle and headbutting things.
