Premiere: Katie Mac ‘Eye to Eye’

Bio: Katie Mac is a singer-songwriter from Huyton, Liverpool. Taking influence from Laura Marling, Joni Mitchell and Regina Spektor, she has also been compared to the likes of Patti Smith, PJ Harvey and Kate Bush. Katie took her music to the next level by adding five band members to her solo act, and self-organising two full UK tours in 2016/2017. She has found great support off Dave Monks of BBC Introducing in Merseyside, and has been opened up towards a national audience with the help of BBC Radio 6 Music. Katie Mac and the band have recently been in the studio to record her new EP which is out on Friday 24th August 2018. The EP has been produced by Sam Duckworth of Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly., and the project was funded by Merseyside Arts Foundation.

‘Eye to Eye’ explores difficulties during the chaos of a forced unhealthy relationship, where rules are set but they are hard to abide. You’ll find the video reflects this by the soft movements of two women pushing and pulling at each other, with the idea that they are caught in a web and can’t get unstuck. Including a sense of repetition in the relationship made by the repeated hand gestures and the tempo in which the melody of ‘Eye to Eye’ keeps.

The lyrics, the video and the richness of Katie Mac’s voice match beautifully making a real sense of turmoil in ‘Eye to Eye’.
