Today LA-based rockerKate Clover shares, “Daisy Cutter,” the latest track off her forthcoming debut LP, ‘Bleed Your Heart Out’ (due April 22, 2022 via SongVest Records / SVR). The track is a true rollicking punk-rock number, exhibiting Kate’s affinity for fuzzed-out riffs and toe-tapping melodies. The single comes alongside a music video, directed by Nicole Lipp and featuring Kate performing the track live in front of gawking onlookers.
Speaking on her newest single, Kate wrote:
“‘Daisy Cutter’ is the first love song I ever wrote. It was sonically influenced by The Buzzcocks, Ramones and Pub rock. I wrote it while falling in love and wanted it to reflect the adrenaline rush of that feeling and how your heart feels like an exploding grenade. To me, there’s no greater feeling.”
Touching on her forthcoming debut album, Kate continued:
“Bleed Your Heart Out is inspired by the glitz and grime of classic LA punk. Bands Such as X, The Gun Club and The Germs, spiked with a power-pop punch of the Buzzcocks. Lyrically inspired by Nick Cave and X’s transgressive and poetic approach to songwriting and the wit and musical cadence of Hunter S. Thompson. Thematically, it explores the intricacies of government conspiracies, self-discovery, love, hate and self-preservation. It’s a rallying shout to would be believers.”
In celebration of her forthcoming debut album, Kate has also shared a handful of North American tour dates, taking place April through May.
