Fresh out of Fremantle, WA is the gorgeous Kathryn Rollins who has just released her debut single ‘Who Shot The Bird Down?‘.
Taken from her impending debut EP, due for release early next year, Kathryn Rollins showcases a pretty delicious husky voice in the single, and for the first 40 seconds had me thinking she was more of the Sarah Blasko peaceful singer/songwriter type. However, once the chorus kicks in with the thumping drums and stoic guitar riffs, it becomes clear this is not the case. It’s almost a Jekyll and Hyde type of song, so delicate and quiet to start and then totally rockified into a heavier little indie rock number. I have to admit, I loved the surprise and ‘Who Shot The Bird Down?’ has definitely grown on me further with every listen.
As a debut single, ‘Who Shot The Bird Down?’ should pigeonhole Kathryn Rollins as one to watch for 2013.
