Occupying a unique place in the musical landscape, Something For Kate have been a household name for 20 years. To their credit, their music has proven difficult to classify; cerebral, subtle and fiercely original, bending the will of audiences to their particular brand of guitar based science-fiction folk-rock to amass a massive cult-like following. They’ve had 5 Top 10 platinum & gold selling albums, won Australian Music Industry Critics Awards for their intense live performances, multiple Rolling Stone gongs for Best Band, Best Album and Best Male Vocalist, had 15 songs in the Triple J Hottest 100 and have toured with everyone from David Bowie to Death Cab For Cutie. Something For Kate continue to make intelligent, beautiful and original records.
They returned in April 2020 with new single, the glorious anthem ‘Situation Room’, from their new album The Modern Medieval. Their first album in over 8 years since 2012’s Leave Your Soul to Science, The Modern Medieval was recorded in Byron Bay by Nick DiDia (Powderfinger, Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen) and mixed in Toronto by Canadian pop-electro auteur Howie Beck (Feist, Hayden, Chilly Gonzalez). An exciting, eclectic collection of songs, a rich hi-fi rush of warm, dynamic vocals, gorgeous guitar work, lush keyboards, and Dempsey’s always compelling story telling – The Modern Medieval finds the band of Paul Dempsey, Stephanie Ashworth and drummer Clint Hyndman united behind a renewed focus.
