Cat Turner returns with new single ‘Situation’ ahead of her upcoming EP release. The electro-synth artist first made waves with her debut EP receiving national airplay and drawing comparisons to artists like Grimes and Tove Lo. Her Clash Music-approved single ‘Waster’ saw her unpicking the complexities of millennial relationships, and live performances have included the Electric Picnic festival and slots with fellow ones-to-watch Pillow Queens.
Turner has won praise for her goth-pop sound, complete with her distinctive raw vocals and driving synths. She was recommended by Hot Press in their ‘Hot for 2019’ list, signalling the Galway-based singer-producer as one of the most promising voices on the Irish music scene and ‘Situation’ marks an ever-growing confidence for this exciting young artist. As always, there is a real sense of honesty with the lyricism on the new single as Turner dissects her own experiences –
“It’s a song about everything I’m not doing. I’m very driven and tend to get into my own bubble in life. It burst a little recently and I realised I was really missing out on a lot in life and generally just in what was going on around me. The song is that realisation and trying to figure out what to do with that.”
