Hailing from both Sweden and Australia, Kate Boy are flourishing with the synth sensibilities of both climes and a groundswell of critical support the world over. Their first few singles have been nothing short of pristine, a bipolar fusion of ice cold synths and warm enveloping beats, and new single "The Way We Are" maintains the impossibly high standard they've established thus far. Its churning synths and concussive percussion reinforce the explosive teen-streaked vocals with the dark and stormy personality of Wednesday Addams fronting Icona Pop or The Knife, as the whole thing goes full Silent Shout in the finale.
We're bringing Kate Boy over for their debut US shows in NYC and LA next month, and with the band's Popshop Brooklyn show supporting HAIM already sold out (in 45 minutes no less), interested parties are going to want to lock in their NYC and LA tickets in posthaste.
