PREMIERE: Anna-Kat is a captivating presence on Fifteen

It was back in November, with the release of her debut single Sink Or Swim, that we were first introduced to the vibrant folk-pop sounds of Anna-Kat. With the track’s release, she immediately built a sound that feels equal parts grounded and explorative; it’s rooted earthy tones, but reaches far wider.

Now, as she gears up to release her debut EP, she has shared her second single Fifteen—and with its release, she flaunts her incredible sonic versatility. If you’re not already familiar with this name, we strongly recommend you change that.

On her new single Fifteen, Anna-Kat presents a striking piano ballad that balances gracefully between vulnerability and power.

Fifteen sits in starkly different sonic territories to Sink Or Swim, but somehow Anna-Kat manages to rope it into one cohesive musical vision. While Sink Or Swim played out like a vibrant explosion of colour, Fifteen is a far more delicate piano-driven ballad. Across the new single’s four-minute run-time, Anna-Kat balances gracefully between vulnerability and power, delivering a truly captivating piece of music.

The new single arrives alongside a Sammy Hawker-directed video clip, perfectly capturing the track’s raw power. Together, the black-and-white clip and the spell-binding song form a perfect audio-visual alliance. We guarantee that once you dive into this new release, you’ll be unable to rip your attention away.

Catch Anna-Kat launching the new single live at LongPlay in Northcote on June 7th. More info on that show here.
