Kate Bradley – ‘Gold Body’

Listen to

Hey guys! Do you remember back in ’07 when US Billboard Magazine named Brisbane as one of the top five unlikely hotspots for new, original music? Do ya?  Well, they did and they also picked singer-songwriter Kate Bradley as an up-and-coming artist to watch.

Her songs are strong, her live performances are great, but both Bradley’s music and personal appearance strongly resemble “Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea” era PJ Harvey. That’s not a bad thing, I really like PJ Harvey, but if you’re one of those music snobs who won’t listen to anything even slightly derivative consider yourself both warned and deprived.

Bradley and her band The Goodbye Horses are the winners of the most recent Toohey’s UncharTED competition, scoring a slot on the 2009 Big Day Out tour.

    Really? I’m not a music snob, but I very much dislike her music, and her band absolutely did NOT deserve to win the UncharTED competition.

    Consider also the number of people she stepped on to get where she is today; it’s no wonder she’s almost universally disliked by Brisbane’s indie scene.

    Yup! Have to agree with Snood. I don’t get the “new band members every month” bit.
    She seemes to change her line-up more often than her wardrobe.

    “NEXT PLEASE!!!”

    It seems you don’t value your time then. If you don’t like it, turn it off and move on. Do you think she stood on people to get to SxSW and the number of other selections she’s had? I don’t think that would be possible. I do think though that there are a lot of grouchy envious moaners in town. Get over it.
