With her album Strange Moon available now, Katie Burden is certainly a name sure to be on everyone’s lips soon enough. Having already been championed by the likes of Noisey and having been the support act for Warpaint bassist Jennylee, she’s also amassed a strong and growing following on both sides of the Atlantic.
Raised in Colorado, Burden went on to spend time in NYC and, later, San Francisco, though it wasn’t until 2012 that she was well and truly bitten by the music bug after meeting a group of musicians that included producer/drummer Norm Block and guitarist Jen Turner of Here We Go Magic.
Having recorded numerous voice memos on her phone and playing them to her new acquaintances to take on board their advice and feedback, together with their support, she put herself firmly on the path to a music career which began with her debut EP My Blind Eye.
With her music described by some as a blend of impeccably stylized atmospheric rock with a shamanistic delivery, she’s so far received comparisons to the likes of a modern-day Jim Morrison and Bat for Lashes.
In terms of her song-writing, her new collection Strange Moon has led her to dig deeper than ever before and offers up an array of emotional tracks to which she admits:
I have a hard time feeling emotions sometimes. Art makes me less afraid to feel and also less alone.
PopWrapped is delighted to premiere a track from the album entitled “My Kind,” which Katie has said is based loosely on Natural Born Killers.
