Kate Davis has shared “Open Heart” a new song from her upcoming album Trophy out November 8 on Solitaire Recordings (Common Holly). The song makes a poignant comparison of heartbreak to open heart surgery; Kate wrote it to commemorate an ex-boyfriend. Kate Davis has also announced an East Coast tour to follow album release, including shows in Brooklyn, DC, Philadelphia and more. The full list of dates is below. This is the third single from Kate Davis’ highly anticipated indie debut, preceded by “rbbts” premiered by Sharon Van Etten.
Kate’s approach to music grew more emotional than that allowed of a jazz darling. Days spent practicing and performing standards became nights spent writing — cathartic indie rock. Forbidden chord progressions emerged like diary entries, documents of an internal reaction to routine. Time intended for technique slipped into secret listening sessions of Beach House, Elliot Smith and TV On The Radio.
