Nash spreads the Brit pop-rock spirit in Norway / Entertainment / The Foreigner

Nash spreads the Brit pop-rock spirit in Norway. The great British pop-rock singer Kate Nash is performing today at John DEE in Oslo to promote her second album “My Best Friend is You”. The album was released in April, and has already received positive reviews from many British and US newspapers: “Not only has the sound been plumped up with girl-group strings - for which thank producer Bernard Butler - she's been listening to Bikini Kill and Sonic Youth and is consequently far more daring a writer and singer," – The Guardian. The Times wrote: “My Best Friend is You” is definitely the sound of Nash growing up”, and RollingStone Magazine thought “Nash is an oversharing spitfire who won`t be ignored- not to mention a huge talent.”

Piano turns grrl-raw

The album was released in April, and has already received positive reviews from many British and US newspapers: “Not only has the sound been plumped up with girl-group strings - for which thank producer Bernard Butler - she's been listening to Bikini Kill and Sonic Youth and is consequently far more daring a writer and singer,"The Guardian.

The Times wrote: “My Best Friend is You” is definitely the sound of Nash growing up”, and RollingStone Magazine thought “Nash is an oversharing spitfire who won`t be ignored- not to mention a huge talent.”

Very often, Nash is compared to feminine Brit Pop’s recent strong card, Lily Allen, on the UK music market.

Rolling Stone Magazine calls her music as being like “spiky piano pop turns Brit-pop brassy and trot grrl-raw”.

A hit

Kate Nash was born 6 July 1987 in London. She became interested in music as a child and firstly learnt to play the piano, then guitar.

She entered to the music scene with a bang in 2007 with the song called “Foundations” on her first album “Made of Bricks”, which became a UK chart-topper.

The album brought her the title of Best Female Artist at the 2008 Brit Awards. Nash also received the NME Awards’ title of Best Solo Artist in UK, as well as Best International Indie/ Alternative Solo Artist in the US the same year.

Her first album came 36th in the US Billboard 2000 rankings of the 200 highest-selling music albums.

She continues her Scandinavian tour tomorrow in Stockholm and Copenhagen on 14September.

Place: John DEE at 21:00
Admission: Kr 230.
