  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    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

back from a dream
straight back to the wastelands it seems
back from the beach
straight back to the darker side of things
where time is a race and this place
throws it in your face
where time is a waste and this place
shows how hard it is

how could you bail on me
off with the wind and set sail on me
out with the tide, leaving me upstream
leaving me upstream
Yeah its calling you back so you go
build a nest from the best that you got
make it home
make it home

every things so real when theres so much you have to face
wasn't built to feel, every second of everyday
you turned your back on the pack, go on, keep on turning
what a stab in the back, go on, try shallow breathing

Go back to the streets stay calm
it's the safest place to be

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.
