    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

coming up for air I've been captive
down and under where the dirt lives
all expectations blow them a kiss
and go on without me go on
I did it for the glory
i crushed so hard
took a beat down on a broken heart
all the kings and queens don't mean anything
go on without them go on

bin a long time in the act of collapse
coming up for air doesn't seem so bad
all they kings and queens they don't mean anything
go on without them go on

went into the brine
before i could swim
it took a long time for it to sink in
i saw so far down, i saw myself in you
you are everything that has happened to you
feeling tall but the wall holds you back
and I'm on the other side and you don't even try
you went down down down hope you feel it all
i went down down down just to watch you fall
every fleeting thought never said out loud
sometimes you just need something to cry about
when up to no good is at its best
drain all the water and start again

all of my wishes breeze in the distance eventually hit the ground
new dandelions more wishes to try again
but you set a fire that can't be put out

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.
