Kate Boothman’s new single “17” was written in 20 minutes and emerged fully formed “I wrote it after a particularly heavy day during a particularly heavy time in my life. I was overworked, overwhelmed, under-slept, heartbroken, and generally confused. I got home at around 11 pm after being away for a while. I lay down on the floor for an hour and when I finally got up I wrote the entire song.”
Watch Here :
The washed out folk track features twangy guitars, sweeping strings, and heavy bass. Lyrically, “17” is about that confidence and arrogance that comes with youth, and then all of a sudden you’re an adult and you realize you knew nothing. You look back and can’t help but examine everything you‘ve learned and lost.
