KATIE KIM - HOUR OF THE OX[+ EXCLUSIVE SIGNED PRINT]
All pre-orders will include an exclusive signed print
Hour Of The Ox will mark the long-awaited return of singer, multi -instrumentalist and songwriter Katie Kim for her sixth full-length album.
The Dublin based artist enters a new epoch with this raring release. A sonically opulent and majestic new territory, written and recorded while in the process of moving to New York and subsequently mixed after being forced back to Ireland during a global pandemic.
Hour of the Ox tells a story of longing and desperation for something connected. An incompatible, disparate but devoted view of the world, told through lush strings, an orchestra of synthesizers, up front vocals and live minimalist drums.
Produced, arranged and recorded by Katie Kim and long-time collaborator John Spud Murphy (Black Midi / Caroline / Lankum) across Dublin, the sprawling Irish countryside and New York, this collaboration between the two, may be their most ambitious. Featuring a roster of previous bandmates, friends and allies.
Katie Kim (Katie Sullivan) has been writing and recording for over 15 years.
Mood is central to the expansive musical landscape throughout her releases. Whether they be bedroom, field or studio recordings. Darkened corners, icy atmospheres and hypnotic knife edge soundscapes. Piano chords stretch to infinity. Cinematic in scope and tectonic in delivery, many have used her scores in documentaries, film and TV to help deliver their stories. She has collaborated extensively with many artists over the years, throughout the genre spectrum and continues to scout the unexplored.
