Berlin-based Australian singer, songwriter and producer Kat Frankie can't wait to embark on an extended tour with BODIES in October, full of new ideas and concepts.
The "BODIES" EP was released in 2019, and in January 2020 the eight-piece ensemble made their full-evening debut in the sold-out RBB broadcasting hall in Berlin, followed by four concerts in Germany, which were also sold out.
Since then, the singer has spent a lot of time producing soundtracks, practicing painting and recording her fifth album, Shiny Things, which was released last year.
“There are no instruments, which for some reason is incredibly liberating. When there are eight people on stage - eight bodies, eight voices and nothing else - the usual structures and expectations don't seem to apply," says the artist of the live experience. “I'm a songwriter and the stage show carries my song DNA. But there are also plays that I have written about autonomy, work and colonization. Great, dramatic songs and very beautiful, almost tender, harmonious moments. I don't think there is anything quite like it," says Kat Frankie.
