    Katie has emerged with 14 tracks that comprise her sixth full length album. The album is about the material conditions of our lives, working, rebelling, resisting, loving, learning, and how we participate, which can be messy and beautiful, encouraging and darkening. There is a feminist edge in this music and a strength that motivates confrontation and also non-compliance!

lyrics

one fast look in your eyes, breakdown compromise
i don't need anything i want, i don't need anything i got
but you keep telling me I should have it all, ride the wave and take no blame
i don't want it on my shoulders, i won't shave and i won't behave

thats when I knew there was something wrong
when they told me i was doing something wrong

and if they make it
you can break it
and if you don't know how
you can fake it
and when they drag you down
you can take it
when they drag you down
you can take it

my jagged tooth and a kissing booth
i left my heart for the wolves to chew
they will feed on anything you got
while you live on all the scraps they don't want
and these ugly streets seem to have it all
dig my grave and have a ball
get me out of this so called dream
get me away from the beauty queens

thats when I knew there was something wrong
when they told me i was doing something wrong

and if they make it
you can break it
and if you don't know how
you can fake it
and when they drag you down
you can take it
when they drag you down
you can take it

thats when I knew there was something wrong
when they told me i was doing something wrong

katie and the lichen Vancouver, British Columbia

KATIE AND THE LICHEN
A 5 piece pop-verisimilitudes/sister/pop-verite band.
Playing ukes, and melodicas, guitars and drums, and more, they
focus on the anti-pop-anti-folk aspects of the lo-fi music universe,
this includes crunching class divisions and endorsing and eating feminism.
They are unladylike. They are encouragable, endearing and effing adorable.
