Katie Von Schleicher "Party Down"

Today sees the release of “Party Down”, the new single by Katie Von Schleicher, and off her upcoming 7” Glad to Be Here, out May 4th via Ba Da Bing & Full Time Hobby (UK). On May 30th, she will be performing a collaborative set for the HUM series with label mate Julie Byrne, “a concert series that celebrates, instigates, and nourishes the community of female and non-binary musicians in New York City and beyond.” In June, Von Schleicher will tour the US alongside Mitski (dates below) and play the Northside Festival in Brooklyn with Sam Evian June 7th.

Von Schleicher on “Party Dawn:”

“On a break from touring this winter I went alone to Maryland, where I am originally from, and made these two songs, taking the gear I’ve very happily accrued since making my album Shitty Hits. I built a fire, I set up my gold drum kit, I saw a ton of stars and felt smushed by silence, and it was lonely, so I made these songs. “Glad to Be Here” is where I find myself right now. “Party Dawn” is tied to Maryland, to my friend and our adolescence. Both are a bridge toward the subject matter of my next record. Back in New York, my collaborator Adam Brisbin (Sam Evian, Jolie Holland, Buck Meek) contributed guitar and bass, and Julian Fader (Ava Luna, Frankie Cosmos, Nadine, Palehound) mixed it.”
