Following the release of her aforementioned new single, we felt that it was about time we got to know the artist a little better and found out some more about the path she has traveled to where she is now and what plans she has for the future.
Who TF is Kate Lomas?
Kate Lomas is an indie pop artist that aspires to make her audience dance and cry at the same time.
How long have you been making music?
I’ve been giving it a go for around 12 years but it was all a bit dodgy to begin with, I feel like it perhaps got to a level that could be enjoyable to listen to in the last 5 years.
Why do you make music?
I really feel like if i didn’t make music it’s likely that I’d explode. I often feel like I don’t have a choice but at same time i’m so grateful for the opportunities I have to express myself
What are your biggest influences?
Bill Nighy, Lana Del Rey, room noise, electronic dance music + London
What would you say has been your best moment so far?
Lemar describing my music as ‘good stuff’ – there is justice in the world
How would you describe your sound to somebody unfamiliar with it?
A deep chaotic introspective mess with big dreams of a sweeter place
What’s your dream “I’ve made it” moment?
Just give me pyramid stage Glastonbury and i’ll stop pestering everyone about it
We love your new release ‘Lemonade’, could you tell us some more about it?
Thank you! This song is a bit of an anomaly amongst my other tracks. I wrote it a long time ago with a friend (Scott is Okay), we gave ourselves the mission to write a whole song in an hour and this was the result! I went on to play Lemonade at live shows and it’s always seemed to be the one everyone remembers and sings back to me. My manager has always been obsessed with the song and after years of persuation I just thought fuck it let’s do it!
What else do you have planned for the near future?
Lots and lots of music and fingers crossed live shows! I miss everything! So ready to get back out there again
And finally, who is your biggest fan right now?
My pal George Prior has claimed number 1 fan from the beginning (love you George). I have to mention Jhair from Columbia too, he’s very supportive on instagram
