Kat Leigh Announces Self-Titled Debut EP, Shares New Song “Criminal”
American alt-rock singer-songwriter Kat Leigh announced their self-titled debut EP would be released on October 11, 2022 via BMG.
The EP comprises 5-track, produced by Erik Ron.
From the EP, Kat Leigh unveiled the second single called “Criminal”, following “Somebody Else”.
The track was written by Katherine Leigh Regan and Kevin Howard Gruft.
“‘Criminal’ to me is a very personal song believe it or not,” Kat Leighsaid of the song. “I’m from a conservative, religious family so my darker style was not something they took lightly for much of my life. They would throw away certain decorations I had in my room if they felt it was ‘anti-religion’ or even ‘anti-republican.’ They would say I only liked these movies and listened to this music because I ‘hadn’t found God.’ One day I came home with ‘red rum’ (The Shining) tattooed on the backs of my wrists and that was their last straw. My step-mom called me a murderer/an advocate, they said it was evil, etc. I’ve always kind of been the ‘devil's daughter’ in their eyes and for no reason other than I like scary movies, tattoos, and loud music. So to be literally called a murderer for simply having my own style was my last straw. ‘Criminal’ is an ode to that time and also poking fun at adults who take kids finding themselves and their styles so seriously.”
