Video of the Day | Coachella Preview Edition: Kate Nash

Share this post

Kate Nash is a firecracker. The British artist came on our radar somewhat accidentally, pop isn’t normally our milieu. Hers is an edgy, whiplash version, and her headlining set at 9:30 Club last November was a revelation (we were there to see La Sera open). Her vigor and verve was peppered with a naughtiness that seemed more organic than most, in the vein of Lily Allen rather than Miley Cyrus.

And, while absolutely pop, her live show is a guitar-driven romp of danceable ditties, somewhat embarrassing and entirely enchanting at the same time (for the average indie rock male). She brings her irrepressible personality and lively theatrics to the Coachella Music Festival the next two Fridays, and is sure to surprise those guys only there accompanying their girlfriends. Her track “Foundations” will almost certainly feature a lady-led sing-a-long — and the aforementioned guys will love every second of it.

Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
