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 www.camelotlounge.com Special Guest: Adam Young
