NEW MUSIC: Katie Brianna – Birmingham


Sydney’s Katie Brianna has announced that her new album Victim or the Heroine is set for release on Friday August 19 (MGM Distribution). The Shane Nicholson produced album is reportedly a more restrained set of songs than her previous album.

Here’s Birmingham, the first single from the record, of which Brianna says in her own words:

“I think this one gets a little Fleetwood Mac in terms of production, and it’s a bit different from stuff I’ve done before. I was on my first big overseas adventure with my sister to the UK and Europe. We were in Birmingham when I started writing this, that’s why it’s called that, even though there is no reference to it in the song. I think she had gone up to the hotel room and I stayed at the bar to be sad and was missing my husband. In the lyrics I talk about the places that I’ve heard about in songs, songs that he (my husband) introduced me to. I mention Basingstoke which I had heard in a Robyn Hitchcock song, and I thought it was pretty cool when we went through there on the train, and it made me miss him more”.

ALBUM LAUNCH: Thursday, August 18th @ Django Bar, Marrickville NSW Special Guest: Adam Young
