In The Spotlight

Katie Wood – “Uh Huh Yeah”

Brought up listening to Blondie and Paul Weller and influenced by the likes of Tear For Fears and Kate Bush, this London-based singer and songwriter douses her music in nostalgic, New Romantic hues. She studied songwriting at the Institute Of Contemporary Music and gained support of Billboard and MTV as well as BBC Introducing. She debuted her ethereal, emotive sound with “Steve” earlier this year.

Narrating her personal struggles with agoraphobia, her new single takes her vulnerability and honesty and travels through her 80s-inspired auditory realm. Totally self-produced in her bedroom, the driving bass, retro rhythm and neon synths splash out in a sanguine, yet wistful way. Vocally expressing the frustration the condition brings, her smoky voice bends the vintage tune to do her bidding.
