Hot Sounds In The City
FLOCKING TO KAT LOCK
Ranging from rock numbers to piano ballads, Kat Lock's music pushes against stereotypes not only within pop/rock genre structures but in greater society as well. Her songs flow directly from the eyes and ears of a young American woman navigating her 20s, and they prove time and again that these experiences can't be boxed into basic "avocado toast" takes by out-of-touch gatekeepers. Maybe it's the Mercury in Libra in her astrological chart, but her music considers multiple dialogues as it embraces the funny, the emotional, and the unpredictable, all qualities of modern life reflected in Lock's technical and narrative turns.
Whether it's millennial and Gen Z listeners alike forming her immediate fanbase or Norman Music Fest declaring her a "festival favorite," there's a reason that people flock to Lock, and it's not hard to find. She's entertaining but not a sellout, confident but not a diva, serious about her music career but not pretentious about it. She's a person, not a brand. Wherever the wind may carry her creative backbone, her voice will continue to reach audiences through honest songs and charismatic performances because, in music and life, Kat Lock gets that sincerity is key.
What hot sounds in the city should fans be listening to of yours right now? The first two singles off my upcoming EP: I Like You, But and Dead Deer. But you should be listening AND watching my latest music video for the track "...u up?", especially if you're spooky. How has the reception been to new music? This music *is* new, but it is also old. The Retrograde EP is all about taking the first songs I ever wrote, and reimagining them now. Retrogrades have a bad reputation, but they bring great opportunities if you look for it! What are you looking forward to most when it comes to the new music? Plating live shows all over the place and connecting to new people, and making new videos. I love a good music video. What was the intention set for your music? That it finds whoever is meant to hear it. What music do you put on when you need some good inspiration? Fiona Apple, Mitski, and Sara Bareilles. Lately I have been hyper-fixated on Sabrina Carpenter's album pretty hard core. What is a song of yours that you have on repeat right now to set the mood for the rest of this year? Mars. I love this song because it's about a million different things, and it's about one thing. Movement!
