WATCH: KATE NASH – OMYGOD
British pop icon Kate Nash premieres her brand new video for the single ‘OMYGOD’ today on MTVU, MTV2 – Artist To Watch, MTVU.com & MTV Buzzworthy and is pleased to announce she will be returning to North America next month for another round of tour dates in continued support of her critically acclaimed third album ‘GIRL TALK’.
The video and single for her current release ‘OMYGOD’ (directed by Aram Rappaport) tells the tale of a love gone sour and the longing for better days. Kate, who wrote the song whilst on vacation, also stars in the summery video which involves synchronized swimmers, friends by the coast and a rather disgruntled Nash at times.
Due to popular demand since her last sold out North American tour on the east coast, Kate Nash will be returning to US turf this spring with a handful of west coast dates. Impressively, select dates are already selling out since announcing earlier this month. Supporting her on this tour will be Ottawa based Allie Hanlon (of White Wires) and her minimalist bubblegum, surfer punk-pop side project Peach Kelli Pop.
Hot off the heels of her international album release of ‘GIRL TALK’ in March, Kate is showing no signs of slowing down. Currently on tour in Europe, the fiery feminist has also found time to be an active global ambassador for her charity Protect A Girl with Plan USA, and Because I Am A Girl Foundation, having traveled to Africa in February to meet young and under-privileged girls in the third world, Kate has helped raise funds and awareness for those in need of education and empowerment. She also launched her Rock and Roll Afterschool project in the UK, which aims to actively encourage young girls from ages 8 to 16 to pick up instruments, join bands and express themselves via music and creative writing.
Also, in a continued effort to support and publicize the Russian punk band Pussy Riot and their imprisonment, Kate released the single titled ‘Free My Pussy’ for International Record Store Day this month and has continually used her profile to educate the public about the unjust goings on towards women across the world today.
In other news, Kate has announced she will be in the upcoming Jeff Buckley biopic ‘Greetings From Tim Buckley’ by Daniel Algrant. The film is based on the biography Dream Brother and will star Gossip Girls Penn Badgley and 28 Days Later actress Imogen Poots. Also this summer, Kate will also be gracing the big screen with the release of the upcoming indie flick titled ‘Powder Room’, starring Jamie Winstone, Oona Chaplin and Sheridan Smith. The movie is an adaptation of the Scottish play ‘When Women Wee’ and was produced by the acclaimed Damian Jones and James Cotton (The Iron Lady, Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll). The comedy is set in a nightclub, and will explore the goings on within those tiled, marbled domains of the women’s toilets.
Kate Nash’s current album ‘GIRL TALK’ (Have 10p Records / INgrooves) is available in all good record stores across the U.S and available digitally on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.
