Sundance Film Festival 2015:
Via Radio X96:
“Kate Tucker: Here’s an interview and two performances with Kate Tucker from the band “Kate Tucker and the Sons of Sweden”. Seattle-born, Nashville-based Kate Tucker and the Sons of Sweden play lush, layered indie rock with sparkling melodies and shimmering soundscapes. On their new album, The Shape the Color The Feel, echoes of Cocteau Twins, Cardigans and early U2 can be heard in songs that explore the darker moods and brighter vistas of Metric, Spoon, Interpol and Phantogram. The high intensity single “Blue Hotel” is fast becoming a radio favorite, charting both CMJ and Triple A stations.”
In the interview Kate mentions our upcoming film, Dream Out Loud directed by Miriam Bennett (currently in production).

Blue Hotel – Official Music Video directed by Miriam Bennett (Moving Studio Productions)
Kate says, “After giving ten different filmmakers free reign to create music videos for each of our songs, it felt good to dial it in and just do what we do.” I couldn’t agree more. With a helping hand from Jason Smythe, a camera and a few lights at Silver Point Studios I wanted this video to bring the focus back to what I love about the music and the performance. The band is on tour now and, quite possibly, coming to a city near you.
Check out the other videos on the The Shape The Color The Feel album as they are released.

Running out of party ideas? Heres one to try out for your next weekend gathering. Locate an abandoned house that is at least 1 mile from the main road. Borrow a small generator (thanks Silver Point Studios!) with enough juice to power several sets of fairy lights. Locate the “champagne room” (this should be clearly marked with spray paint courtesy of a former visitor). Turn the champagne room over to your bartender and set up the thump trunks in the adjoining parlour. Add Kate Tucker, Matthew Thompson, Wes Chandler and Ethan Place and a bunch of other people who are wondering what they are up to. Make sure to build in extra time beforehand for an impromptu tour with Jessie English for interested members of the local police force.
Pre-order the new album and support their kickstarter project at the same time.

I took this photo of Kate through a mirror in back of my house. It’s featured on the CD cover for her latest release Ghost of Something New.
Available in Record Stores and through iTunes, the album features a lovely design by Irene Barber. Take a listen here http://katetucker.bandcamp.com/album/ghost-of-something-new
