Fresh off the back of a UK and European tour with Aldous Harding, Katie Von Schleicher has shared her new single, ‘Life’s A Lie’, taken from her upcoming debut album Shitty Hits (out on Friday 28th July 2017 via Full Time Hobby Records in the UK/Europe and Ba Da Bing in the US). See full tracklisting below.

Katie said the following about the song and video: “‘Life’s a Lie’ is about imposter syndrome. I felt really good writing the music, it’s a bit inspired by Todd Rundgren or Emitt Rhodes’ cheerful pop tunes. On the surface, it’s just that. The narrative is from that unrestrained inner voice, the self-critic, which has the power to isolate you from the good stuff. In practice, this all happens on a subconscious level, that’s why I thought it apt to be paired with the most joyful sounding track on the record.

Matt Strickland (with whom I’ve done all my videos) is a comedian as well as a film-maker, and together we appreciate humour and depression. In keeping with the song, everything on the surface is just fine, nothing is amiss, unless you’re watching the lyrics float by.
