Catey Shaw

Isn’t it funny how what once may have been a byword for cool suddenly becomes a term with which to slate. Take Brooklyn. The neighbourhood is now pilloried for being a hipster cliche as a result of that other dirty word:  gentrification. Catey Shaw was pilloried for her video for debut Brooklyn Girl, people bellowing it as the final nail in the coffin of cool. Screw ‘em. Shaw makes poppy plastic music doused with suggestive coos that sticks in your head. An undeniablely sharp buoyancy oozes throughout album ‘The Brooklyn EP’ – and you know what, she sounds happy? There’s nothing wrong with that. Sometimes being cool as fuck isn’t that cool.
