My Kamikaze Heart
Reviewed by: Jen Levins
Kat McGivern’s art for My Kamikaze Heart looks something like riot girl meets Annie Lennox. While this isn’t too far from the truth, it might imply more sophistication than this album has to offer. It’s probably more appropriate to think of Kat as a modern 80s pop star who grew up listening to Avril Lavigne and the Cranberries. Her music is youthful, catchy, and radio friendly. Her lyrics are not particularly original or clever, but they are easily digestible. The production on the album makes itjust different enough from the current selection of pop artists. Given her potential for success with the pre-teen crowd, it wouldn’t be a surprise if we hear more of her in the future.
