Singer/Songwriter Kate Nash has announced two low key London dates to perform tracks from her eagerly awaited third studio album. She will play the Attic upstairs at Hackney Picture House for a Buffy the Vampire Slayer-themed Halloween Party on October 31st, and then onto the Shacklewell Arms on November 1st, proceeds from which will be donated to Michael Sobell House hospice, which provides patients with life limiting illnesses support for them and their families. Hackney is an area she is familiar with, being a regular frequenter of the “Cat & Mutton” Gastropub on Broadway Market. And she is obviously a community girl at heart: Last year Kate was instrumental in helping to clean up London after the 2011 Riots, where she led a brigade of helpers and volunteered to collect donations for those made homeless by riots in Tottenham, setting up her own public donation stand and delivering donations to Tottenham Leisure Centre in her car.
Coming in the wake of her last album ‘‘Under Estimate the Girl’’ which garnered widespread coverage, the 25 year old Singer from Harrow is currently putting the finishing touches to the widely anticipated follow-up album. Produced by Grammy award-winning producer Tom Biller, the yet unnamed album fuses elements of punk, rock and shoe-gaze to create a distinctive and unique soundscape. Starting her career in 2005, Kate garnered widespread critical acclaim and a loyal live following in the wake of the release of debut album ‘’Made Of Bricks’’ which featured international hit single ‘‘Foundations’’. Her second studio album, entitled My Best Friend Is You, was released in the United Kingdom in 2010 and in spawned her second biggest chart hit to date, the single “Do-Wah-Doo”.
