—real name, Katrine Ottosen —is a Danish art-pop gal we swear you'll have a hard time shaking, should you choose to give the premiere of her new video for "Rolling" a whirl. Totally up to you of course, but aren't you at least a little bit curious about a 4 minute head high, complete with kazoo solo? Yup, you are.
Behind the internationally acclaimed alternative psych-pop of CALLmeKAT stands Copenhagen-based musician, composer and singer Katrine Ottosen.
Ottosen grew up in a forest in the Danish countryside, where she would always find herself secretly drawn towards an old beat up piano. Now later in life her ongoing love for vintage and analog keyboards shines through in her music, infused with an earthy feel and a rare talent for the balance between electric and organic elements.
Her first self-released album (Fall Down/When Owls Are Out) gained fans and followers all over. Even before an international release the music spread continuously through word of mouth.
