Perth artist Katy Steele has shared her latest offering – sparkly alt-pop track ‘Come And See Me’, written, recorded and produced entirely in her home studio with the help of Josiah Padmanabam (Grievous Bodily Calm).
With a pounding beat that rolls into a shimmery infectious chorus, the latest single is an elevated dancefloor filler guaranteed to brighten your mood.
Discussing the track Katy says, ‘This song was born when we were asked to contribute a song for a travel campaign that never eventuated! We were trying to capture the spontaneity of two people travelling exploring new terrain and looking for a new landscape. We were drawn to the classic feel of those eighties hits with the big synth and wanted the song to feel nostalgic, like hearing a classic track for the first time.’
Showcasing her talents as a creative chameleon with previous singles ‘End is Near’ and ‘Feel So Bad’, she’s forging ahead and today she announces the release of her second studio album Big Star out Friday, June 9. Quintessential Steele… upbeat, energetic, pop nostalgia.
Katy reflects on the process, “Of course, like many projects that demand so much energy and creativity, there were times I questioned everything. However, one of the most important lessons I’ve learnt about myself is that I will never stop creating, no matter what life throws my way. This is what I was born to do. All of the elements that you will experience when listening were lovingly created and recorded in my home studio, by me and my life partner. To be able to hit record whenever you feel that spark inside you is pretty incredible. The world we live in is forever changing and now this album is a part of it.”
To coincide with the release Katy Steele will be heading out on a massive National Tour presented by Double J. This will be the first time fans get to witness the album in its entirety along with a few crowd-favorites.
