In 2015, Australian recording artist Katie Dey experienced a sudden wave of attention that saw her debut, "a 21-minute sugar-rush" of demented bedroom pop, sell out in a single day from the Orchid Tapes site and land on a number of year-end lists (including FACT's). With Flood Network (out on Joy Void), she furthers that highly distinctive sonic palette—best distilled by The Fader: "jumpy melodies, inhuman voices, and what feels like a million layers of texture... yet always sad and beautiful and eerily familiar, as if it had been your favorite song on some alternate plane of existence." The formula thrives in the full-length format: hypnotic, exploratory interludes, outros, and reprises give the sweeter, more structured moments additional space to breath and brighten. A hyper-color universe, certainly all her own.Coverage on music sites Official website
