SXSW 2014: Future, Sam Smith, Kate Nash & More Added To Lineup

A fresh new batch of artists has been added to the 2014 South By Southwest lineup, and there’s plenty of fodder to bring pop fans down to Austin on March 7 (if previously announced acts like Charli XCX, Betty Who and A Great Big World weren’t enough of a reason to attend). Atlanta space-rapper and father-to-be Future will perform,…

Free Agent: Kate Nash On Forging Her Own Path

Free Agent is a video series where we profile artists who have decided to forge out as independent acts without the support of a major label. From those who left of their own volition to those unceremoniously dropped to those who wanted to circumvent the system altogether, these artists may not have big backing, but

Kate Nash’s “Fri-end?” Music Video Gives Fans The Gift Of ‘Buffy’

We were lucky enough to get treated instead of tricked by Kate Nash this October 31, with a Halloween-themed music video — and new track. Though things have been pretty quiet from the “Do Wah Doo” singer following the release of her 2010 album My Best Friend Is You (one of our favorite albums of…

10 Out Of ’10: Idolator’s Favorite Albums Of The Year

With the year just about wrapped up, we here at Idolator decided to get together, pore over our individual iPods and revisit the music that got us motivated in 2010.

PHOTOS: Goldfrapp, Kate Nash, La Roux, Lissie And More At Britain’s V Festival

One glance at the bill for this year’s V Festival, and it’s easy to see how the annual double venue music spectacular sold out in a mere 90 minutes. From Elly Jackson’s giant black druid-esque hood, to Kate Nash‘s fringed unitard, the theme for the festival’s second day seemed to be “Outrageous Outfits”. None of…

Kate Nash Is One Sexy Circus Performer In The “Kiss That Grrrl” Vid

The last time we spoke to darling Brit-pop singer Kate Nash, she told us that she was inspired by the HBO Documentary Cat Dancers when coming up with the concept for her video for “Kiss That Grrrl”, the next single off her sophomore album My Best Friend Is You. But we see a few other influences: namely, Britney Spear’s “Circus” video…

We were cursing ourselves for not being across the pond this weekend for Europe’s biggest free ticket event of the year: BCC Radio 1’s Big Weekend. Thankfully, we have some smashing concert pics that are almost as good as being there (well, not almost). Flip through to see recent Idolator interviewee Kate Nash, our fav

The Idolator Interview: Kate Nash

Fame caught Kate Nash a little off-guard – after a sudden burst of popularity on MySpace helped land her a record deal, she saw her album soar to #1 on the UK charts – and promptly suffered a breakdown. Two years later she’s back, with an album that reads as a determined effort to wra…

PHOTOS: Kate Nash Takes L.A. To A Higher Plane

Kate Nash began her L.A. show last night at the El Rey Theater by warning the audience if they weren’t there to have a good time they would be escorted out of the venue. She then kicked off the night with the first track off of My Best Friend Is You “Paris”. Kate’s infectiously fu…

Kate Nash Goes Sky High With Retro “Do Wah Doo” Video

We expect pre-flight emergency landing instructions to be the hottest new dance trend after watching Kate Nash’s adorably nostalgic mile-high music video for “Do Wah Doo,” the first single off her second studio album, My Best Friend Is You. The quirk-tastic Brit singer plays a lovelorn flight attendant in the vid, which seems to have…

Kate Nash Gets Her Retro Girl Group Vibe On With New Single “Do Wah Doo”

Phew! There’s hope after all for Kate Nash’s upcoming as-yet-untitled album. After the singer released the off-putting, tuneless “I Just Love You More” as a free download two weeks back, SPIN.com is now streaming Kate’s official new single “Do Wah Doo” (hear it below). Handclaps, horns, ’60s girl group backing vocals and Brill Building piano…

Kate Nash Offers “I Just Love You More” As A Free Download

Waaaaay back in 2007, Kate Nash bubbled up in the post-Lily Allen pop pool with her UK hit “Foundations” and debut album Made Of Bricks. Now she’s set to release her yet-to-be-titled sophomore LP in April. Ahead of that, Kate’s offered up a free song download, which you can hear below. (Warning: fans of the…

Kate Nash Thinks One Lousy Record Entitles Her To An Opinion

Kate Nash, who according to Maura is “a lot less cloying than on record/in the press,” probably should consider visiting every single person who reads British music coverage, because at this rate, “cloying” is leading “not completely self-absorbed” by six lengths.

Coachella line-up update! Hot shit! Five-words-or-less take on each new addition: Aphex Twin (ooh), Goldfrapp (yay), Kate Nash (ugh no), Serj Tankian (iffy on the solo stuff), Redd Kross (!), and Adele (eh).

Kate Nash Has A Lot On Her Mind, And She Wants To Tell You All About It

With the new year all rung in, it’s time to once again round up the all-important, all-summarizing last sentences of the biggest new-music reviews. Today’s entry is Made Of Bricks by the nu-Lily-Allen Kate Nash, which hits stores in the United States today:

Lily Allen, Take Two: Kate Nash Slips Into An Abandoned Pair Of Sneakers

Now that Lily Allen has lost about 20 pounds and traded in the sneakers (no, I will not call them trainers) for heels, who will be cute (“real-life cute”), spunky, catchy, relatable, over-hyped, and British for us? Who will weigh at least 120 pounds, wear quirky garments, and sing to us about boy trouble over…
