Sonically evoking the spirit of Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia and building on the disco resurgence of the last few years, Penkin’s latest offering is an upbeat earworm ready to soundtrack your next carefree night out.

““Love Sex Fame” is about stepping out, feeling yourself and living for yourself and your own wants and needs,” Kat explains and she certainly gets what she wants in the track’s music video. Starring as a Marilyn-esque figure, she fools the players of a back room poker game with her charm, wit and girl gang by her side.

For Kat, the song is about taking things at face value, something which comes naturally to the rising star. “I feel so empowered when I’m listening to “Love Sex Fame”,” she says, “I’ve never really been too precious about transactional interactions with people, I don’t tend to feel too attached or think too far ahead, I just want to enjoy the funny little dance you do with a potential love interest and take it for what it is.”

Born in Devon, raised in Perth, Australia, and now based in Brighton, Kat has been hard at work writing and developing her nostalgic, but fresh sound. Blending relatable lyrics with pop, R&B and soulful influences, her music is a unique melting pot of sensibility and sass.

Fostering a community of loyal fans and tastemaker support through her independent single releases last year, “Love Sex Fame” is the second preview of her forthcoming debut EP Checkmate, set for release early next year with Ultra Records.

The new single follows her lockdown-inspired debut “A Better Time” supported by Wonderland and New Music Friday UK. Already a shapeshifting artist, the first single leans into Kat’s love of soul, whereas “Love Sex Fame” takes on disco and there are more exciting twists and turns across the six-track collection, which is set to establish Kat as one to watch as we move into 2022.
