Kate Nash: Good Summer
I don't know about the rest of the world, but me and my fellow Angelenos have FORTY-FOUR more days of Summer to make the most of. There's been a lot of decent seasonal music to help soundtrack my vodka cocktails table-to-mouth flights, my shoes and their temperamental cutting of rugs, and the salty wind whipping through my hair down the PCH, but few are on that GOOD (in all CAPS) level that Kate Nash and her new single reside on.
Of course I started writing this having only the Soundcloud link. Turns out, this pop offering comes equipped with a technicolor visual. The music video for "Good Summer" checks off all the right boxes: directed by Lee Jones, shot in Kate's mum’s garden, and features all her best girl friends in their element. Speaking of...Kate adds, “In Britain, in the summer you let go of the stuff on your shoulders and go, Fuck it, I’m gonna get on this banana boat. Go crazyyyyy!”
