Kate Nash - I Just Love You More

by Rich Morris Rating:8 Release Date:2010-02-15

"I'd rather be with your friends mate 'cause they are much fitt-ar," she sang in 2007, defining a summer in the most irritating mockney fashion imaginable. I'm sure she's a lovely girl, but good God, it was annoying. So what has Kate been working on since then, in between hanging out with her rock star boyfriend? Has she taken the Lily Allen route - cheesier music, snarkier lyrics? No. 'I Just Love You More', available as a free download on her site, sounds exactly like the Pixies, fronted by PJ Harvey. That is to say: absolutely brilliant.

It opens with a chug of distorted guitar, before big drums and a killer riff kick in. Is this really Kate Nash? "I just love you more…than anything", she moans rather creepily, sounding thrillingly desperate and obsessed, before letting out a demented shriek of pain as the guitar wails with feedback. Then things build to a nightmarish crescendo before abruptly ending; we are left only with Kate panting, out of breath from her emotional exertions. Astonishing. If she carries on like this, her album might just be worth listening to.
