New Sounds: Kate Nash is here to break up and ‘Drink About You’


Kate Nash’s new single is about an “unhealthy obsession” with an ex. Well, now we have an “unhealthy obsession” with her latest single. And it’s hella refreshing.

The brilliant British lyricist and star of Netflix’s Glow is back to give us all the modern romance commentary we need in her infectious new single, a rousing bit of bubble-bursting indie-pop that we imagine what dating in Los Angeles must feel like (it also reminds us a bit of “Foundations”).

The video was directed by Holychild’s Liz Nistico and shot in the Los Angeles National Forest; of the song itself, Nash says that it’s “about breaking up with someone and becoming obsessed with an idea of who they are, to the point you can’t think of anything else or move on. It’s an unhealthy obsession, you imagine things are better than they are and latch on to whatever you can about the relationship that could be turned to good. And you deal with the pain in an unhealthy way, too.”

Nash certainly has a way of narrating how we all feel about the arc of relationships. “Drink About You” is a taste from her forthcoming album, Yesterday Was Forever, which hits March 30, just as the songwriter and actress heads our way for a North American tour. It kicks off April 4 in Vancouver, wraps May 2 in New York City, and along the way crashes Royale in Boston on April 25. Tickets go on sale Friday (February 9).

Drink about it.
