Singer/songwriter, Katrina Ford (of Celebration and Mt Royal) announces her debut, self-titled solo EP, due June 24 via Violin Films. To celebrate the announcement of the EP, she has also shared the EP’s second single, “Gleaming The Cube,” along with its accompanying music video.
Katrina wrote:“Haste makes waste makes treasure. – ‘I meant to do that.’ Fuck ‘outside box.’ We are inside the cube, pushing the light. Finding the levity in inevitable law of gravity. SO I get layered like a cake in rock piano and shuffle beat, meshed into chunks of backing vocals and swirls of synths topped with a roto-tomic filled, club whistling, marching band field recording and a dab of harp on top.”
Over the last 30 years, Ford has been in a wide range of records to support including support roles for TV On The Radio, Jaks, and Unkle. Since then, she’s also worked on the Gothic, art-punk of Love Life, the melodies of Mt. Royal, and the various shades of Celebration and its short-lived predecessor Birdland. The only thing that connects the two is that Sean Antanaitis has been Ford‘s longtime creative partner, the singer’s other half ever since they met in art class during high school.
“When you listen to music, it’s all about the emotion behind it,” says Ford, “but it’s also all about the emotions you’re feeling — set and setting, you know? Sean always seems to be in the same place as me emotionally. I feel lucky that we found each other.”
