It's taken me ages to get hold of a copy of Kat Flint’s EP The Secret Boy’s Club EP, and having finally managed to get my grubby paws (twas a fun weekend ;-), I’m glad to have persevered. Coming across like a scottish Missy Higgins (female, great turn of phrase, guitar – I’m crap with comparisons), TSBC is a beautiful, gentle collection of songs.
Kat sings with a powerful clarity that manages to be vunerable and powerful within the same breath. Although recorded on a shoestring, the tracks come across as accomplished complete songs (and one even features handclaps and a kazoo! Yes! A kazoo.)
Fans of the aforementioned Missy Higgins, Suzanne Vega, Janis Ian or even Judy Collins should check her out.
