KATY STEELE SHARES NEW SINGLE ‘BROKEN’ – TOUR KICKS OFF THIS WEEK

“It’s another collection of incredibly strong pop songs, built around glistening synths and bassy rhythms. Songs that have the kind of sparkle required to match the majesty of Steele’s distinctive voice.” – Double J, Feature Album

“Steele channels the glittering pop melodies of Blondie and Fleetwood Mac and couches them in slick production, which always lifts up that phenomenal voice” – The Australian

“….delivering a powerful blend of Steele’s iconic vocals alongside the greatest elements of pop music” – Forte Mag

“An effervescent glam stop that floats buoyantly along with spirit” – Backseat Mafia

2023 saw the huge success of WA artist Katy Steele’s sophomore album Big Star which received wide-spread support from Double J, including Artist in Residence, Feature Album and landing in the Best 20 Albums of 2023, plus was nominated for Soundmerch Australian Music Prize 2023.

Today she is back with brand-new track ‘Broken’, which has been sitting in the vault for several years waiting to make its long-awaited debut. The latest hit is a preview of what to expect from her upcoming EP set to be released in June.

‘Broken’, originally penned during her time in New York, has been brought to life with help of producer GRAMMY and mixer Tony Buchen (Smashing Pumpkins, Montaigne, Troye Sivan, G-Flip)

Katy Steele reflects on the track’s evolution – “Broken unintentionally has always reminded me of Carly Simon’s classic ‘You’re So Vain’. The lyrics are straight up, a little like myself. It was inspired by some of my personal experiences of heartbreak during my years in New York. Like all my songs though, there tends to be more than one pivotal subject within the song, so I will leave it up to my listener’s own interpretations.”

Katy and her partner GRAMMY will be hitting the road in support of the latest single for a run of intimate shows across Australia, showcasing a stripped back performance of her catalogue.

On the tour Katy says, “This tour is so exciting as it’s a chance for us to really explore my catalogue in a fresh way. Just myself and my partner, reinventing these songs in a refined and sonically distinctive way After the full band tour last year – which was a huge undertaking, it’s nice to hit the road for a few capital cities in some unique intimate venues that lend themselves well to this particular show. I’m really looking forward to playing my new single ‘Broken’ in its new format too!”
