Katie Goes to Tokyo. It’s almost an unfortunate band name, given recent events and given that this band makes sunny songs with lead vocals by Swedish singer/songwriter Kathrine Bergström, who has a voice of smooth, pop perfection. But it’s not her fault: The band has been around–in other forms and under other names–since 2002, when Kathrine met some of her current band partners and they formed The Wilson Hospital, who released their debut in Sweden and Japan. Hence the name she took on for her 2006 “solo” album, created with some of the same folks.
My Naked Heart was released in Sweden in 2010, and recently in the U.S. It’s her second album. Cop it at CD Baby.
Here’s the vid for “Will You Be Gone All Summer?”
