about

Kata's story: katamusic.com

"Feist getting intimate with Air in Snow Patrol’s bedroom"

Previously known as Nut, she recorded the album for Sony. Described at the time as a “little known masterpiece”, it was championed by DJ’s Phil Jupitus, Mark Radcliffe and Jo Whiley

Her unique blend of acoustic guitars, seductive pop and vintage electronics is certain to appeal to fans of the likes of Florence and the Machine, Sia and Emiliana Torrini. Co-produced by Andy Ramsay (Stereolab) Kata has created an album which she describes as sounding like Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath before the inception of the Birthday Letters.

Track Name: The One
I want to paint a thousand flowers, I want to paint you nude
I want to paint the assassination of every one of your moods

And you are urging me on
Finding me out
I’m searching for the light
But you’ll never let me go

So why don’t you bow your head in shame?

I want to find my true self
I want to bend my knees
I want to kiss the ground when you walk at my feet
I want to be the fall out
I want to be the one
I want to be extraordinary
But I’m so mixed up
Cos I’m so in love with you

Because you are the moment, when God forgot his plan
Because you are the moment when I reach for what I am

And you are turning me on
Trying me out
I’m searching for the light
But you’ll never let me go

So why don’t you bow your head in shame?

I want to find my true self
I want to bend my knees
I want to kiss the ground when you walk at my feet
I want to be the fall out
I want to be the one
I want to be extraordinary
But I’m so mixed up
Cos I’m so in love with you
Track Name: But I Feel Alright
Behind my eyes are all my thought
Behind my clothes is all my skin

Can I stay. With you. Can I call your cell phone come right up.
Can I stay . With you.
Will you lift me off my feet so I don’t touch the ground
I don’t touch the ground.
I whisper to a star. I tell you who you are

Behind my mouth are all my words
Behind my heart are all my hurt

Can I stay. With you. Can I call your cell phone come right up.
Can I stay . With you.
Will you lift me off my feet so I don’t touch the ground
I don’t touch the ground.
I whisper to a star. I tell you who you are

My home has forgotten me
My man doesn’t know who I am
My life is a fucked up thing
My world has come crashing in
But I feel alright

My home has forgotten me
My man doesn’t know who I am
My life is a fucked up thing
My world has come crashing in
My world
Track Name: Everywhere You Go
Put your lips close to mine
Can you feel what I’m feeling this time?
I was lost now you’ve found me
It’s the nature of what we can be

Let your hair down to touch the ground
That you walk in your sleep I have found
This is not what I thought it was
Face to face, it’s the lesson of love


I wanna be outside your window
I wanna be outside your door
I wanna follow you everywhere you go

This was not meant to hurt you
This was not meant to be that way
But I can’t pull myself together
So will you mend, can you mend me whole

I wanna be outside your window
I wanna be outside your door
I wanna follow you everywhere you go
Will you take me with you everywhere you go
Will you take me with you everywhere you go
Track Name: Mountain Talk
If mountains and rivers could talk they would cry
If I knew what I was before I’d be wise
I can’t hang around here all day, have to go now
I think that you really love me though you don’t know

Almost closed down I thought you’d gone away
That sudden feeling, I want you to stay
I’m trying not to stamp my feet but all I wanna do is be with you

I don’t need to know why the earth spins round the sun
But I want to know why my world has come un-done
I never want to subtract myself from you
So when can we be born again, be brand new

Almost closed down I thought you’d gone away
That sudden feeling, I want you to stay
I’m trying not to stamp my feet but all I wanna do is be with you

Travel in your mind, walk around your body, breathe at the same time,

I’m trying not to stamp my feet but all I wanna do is be with you
All I wanna do, It’s all I wanna do, All I wanna do, It’s all I wanna do
Track Name: Dare
I’m not sure if I should stay the night or go
I don’t know what you’re thinking
I’m not sure if I should stay or I should go now
If I wait too long then weeds will grow beneath my feet

We stare but we don’t dare do all the things we wanna do
I’m reeling, screaming, inside out of you

Will you please please me. Will you please me
Will you call my name. Will you drive me insane
Will you please please me. Will you please me

We’re not born to survive, to just stay alive
I want to write my world all over you
There’s nothing of me that’s out of bounds, that is sacred ground
And you can hold my future in your hands

We stare but we don’t dare do all the things we wanna do,
I’m reeling, screaming, inside out of you

Will you please please me. Will you please me
Will you call my name. Will you drive me insane
Will you please please me. Will you please me

And everyday I will live as though it’s my last
Cos maybe it is today. Maybe it is tonight
Who are we to know

Will you please please me. Will you please me
Will you call my name. Will you drive me insane
Will you please please me. Will you please me

Will you please please me. Will you please me
Will you call my name. Will you drive me insane
Will you please please me. Will you please me
Track Name: Hotel
My body is your hotel, it’s on the 42nd floor
Take the lift, I’m waiting inside for you, I’m hiding in your bedside drawer

And I love the way you do
And I love the way you do

My body is your hotel, I hear you knocking on my door

And I love the way you do
And I love the way you do

Cos I know that I am not beautiful
And all you really want is a friend
But I want to put my arms around you
I want to touch my fingers to you
I want to rest my head on your shoulders
Cos you are my weakness
My worst habit is you
I want to put my arms around you, touch my fingers, rest my head, my worst habit is you.


My body is your hotel, I feel you walking through my door

And I love the way you do
And I love the way you do
Track Name: Save My Life
You don’t know me so don’t pretend you do
You want something from me but I won’t give to you
Pretend I’m dreaming, I’m walking on thin air
Pretend I’m laughing like I don’t even care

I don’t even care about the boys that shout
The girls that brush their hair
I don’t even care about the summer time
The little things that drive me

Can you save me from drowning?
Can you save my life?

What can I tell you that you do not know
What can I think about to help me let you go
I’m learning how to fall down,how to spin around and round
I’m learning how to stand up to what is on my mind
Track Name: Count 2 Three
I’m creeping through your house but you don’t know, you don’t know
I’m opening your door but you don’t know, you don’t know
I’m crawling in your bed but you don’t know, you don’t know
I’m disturbing everything but you don’t know

It’s a wonderful night
It’s a wonderful day
It’s a wonderful life
But this won’t go away

I’m colouring the sky but you don’t know, you don’t know
I’m casting my net wide but you don’t know, you don’t know
I’m hurling into you, but you don’t know, you don’t know
I love everything you do, but you don’t know

And if you all I want
I would ask you to hold my hand
And count to three again
It’s a wonderful night
It’s a wonderful day
It’s a wonderful life
But this won’t go away
Track Name: Things That We Repeat
Pale, it’s paler than I thought
Morning, I’m waiting for the dawn
It hurts, when you hold me in your arms
Cos I know, our time is running out, time is running out


But don’t go chasing after green grass
Cos it’s not as good as what we had
I want us to be how we were before
I want us to start out over again


Delete, the things that get you down
Swallow, the thought of who I am
The wise men, don’t bring me to my knees
It’s solid now, the things that we repeat, things that we repeat, things that we repeat


But don’t go chasing after green grass
Cos it’s not as good as what we had
I want us to be how we were before
I want us to start out over again
Track Name: Shy
You come round to my place and I don’t know what to do
We sit on the sofa trying hard to be so true
I make us some coffee and we roll a cigarette
But all I can think about is what we could do instead

Why don’t we go to
Why don’t we go to

I’m holding my hands down and I’m staring at the ground
I don’t want you to notice me and I don’t want to be found
My bodies going crazy and my mind has got no room
I know I’m not a good person cos all I want is you

Why don’t we go to
Why don’t we go to
Why don’t we go to

There’s a bed in the room next door, we can sleep deep deep sleep.. there’s a bed in the room next door

Crush Me
Figure eight Me
Steal my Skin
Come Away With Me
Come. Away.With. Me.
Track Name: Breaking Up With You Is The Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me
So what if we don’t talk and we don’t call and we don’t even text no more
So what I eat alone but I can’t eat, I sleep alone but I can’t sleep now

And I don’t want to say goodbye but now I know we can never say hello
And I don’t want to be alone but can you tell me what place can I go

Breaking up with you is the best thing I can do
Breaking up with you is the best thing I can do
It’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me
I will make sure that this comes to be

Since you’ve gone, I am dry eyed cos I refuse to cry when I feel sad
Since you’ve gone I wear the same clothes that I wore it’s like I’m going mad

I don’t know what I want, tell you when I know, when I work it out
I don’t know when will I feel the difference between the day and the night

Breaking up with you is the best thing I can do
Breaking up with you is the best thing I can do
It’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me
I will make sure that this comes to be
