Kaia Kater

New Single “The Internet”

New Album and Film Score in 2024

The first single since 2021 from talented and rising artist Kaia Kater is out.

“The Internet” is also Kater’s first single after signing to Free Dirt Records and a preview of a new album coming in later this year. Kicking off 2024 with new music and an upcoming tour to the UK and Europe in January and February, Kater intends this year to be a triumphant return to recording and touring. She will also be appearing in 2024 as part of newly formed Black string band supergroup New Dangerfield, featuring Jake Blount, Tray Wellington and Nelson Williams. Kater’s album will feature key special guests and celebrates the power of women and oppressed people throughout history as they rise up and turn the poison of centuries of oppression into a strange kind of medicine.

“The Internet” encapsulates the manipulation of our modern digital age. Inspired in part by Kate Bush‘s song “Watching You Without Me”, in the chorus Kaia riffs on old modem sounds by rendering some of the lyrics barely intelligible and slightly garbled.

We loved her 2016 album Nine Pins (see our review) and the follow up 2018’s Grenades added more fans, drawn to her fresh take on Black North American roots music.

Following this album, she took a break from recording solo work, choosing to focus on film composition and songwriting, though she did release a single with jazz trumpeter aTunde Adjuah (formerly Christian Scott) in 2021. Her work in film is also coming to fruition this year with the release of the new film My Dead Friend Zoe, with Kater playing banjo throughout the soundtrack. The film features performances from Sonequa Martin-Green, Natalie Morales, Ed Harris and Morgan Freeman and will have its global premiere at SXSW 2024.
