Berlin based Kat Koan & The Lost Souls return with a brand new release ‘Slow’ on 29th July, taken from the forthcoming debut album ‘Coccon’ due later this year to be released on Vinyl and Bandcamp only.
Following on from recent tracks ‘Fangs Out’ and ‘Lost Souls’, ‘Slow’ sees Kat Koan and her new band ‘The Lost Souls’, rework Kylie Minogue’s original song in their own inimitable style. Peppered with subtle nods to esteemed peers like Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Blondie and Wet Leg, the accompanying video pays homage to the city of Berlin where Kat Koan is from.
Kat explains: “I love Kylie, the undisputed queen of sparkly hot pants. We wanted to take one of her songs and make it darker, grittier, more psychedelic sounding. So that’s what we did. The video is an Ode to Berlin and what this city is all about, a colourful dirty messy haven for free spirited people. It was shot by Patrick Tichy and features my awesome friends Megumi Eda and Tish William Wood, two insanely talented ballet dancers, who embody the sense of freedom and liberation I was keen to express.
Living in Berlin has totally changed what’s important to me in life. It’s not about material possessions, but finding ways to actually LIVE. The work / life balance is a lot healthier here than in most other big cities. A big part of that is finding creative fulfillment and enjoying the process of making stuff, not being too hung up about some kind of commercial success, whatever that might mean in the first place.”
