Recommendation – Kate Tempest – ‘Bad Place For A Good Time’

Following the release of last year’s astonishingly brilliant Everybody Down, which gained her a Mercury Prize nomination, Kate Tempest is already releasing new music – yesterday she dropped ‘Bad Place For A Good Time‘, a haunting ode to the nihilism of modern life. What I love about this track is its pace; Kate has stepped away from the frantic delivery adopted on her previous releases, choosing instead to deliver her lyrics in a deeper register at an almost walking pace. The music here is equally brilliant, with a minimalist beat accompanied by piano gradually building into a swing pattern with a dark synth bass line. Have a listen here:
