Best Girl Athlete, aka Katie Buchan, has released her latest single Seven Seconds, via Fitlike Records. It's available to buy digitally on iTunes.
Seven Seconds is an effortlessly catchy track, filled with simple yet effective Americana style musicianship, mixed with upbeat pop sensibilities, as the acoustic guitar and gentle violin float and swirl beautifully throughout the song. The single premiered on The Line Of Best Fit and you can listen to it now via the ABoF SoundCloud page.
The video for Seven Seconds premiered on Amelia's Magazine and is available to watch now via Best Girl Athlete's YouTube channel.
Katie’s earthy, delicate vocal tone, and impressively mature lyrical content, merely illustrate the wisdom and talent Katie continues to exhibit. Lyrics such as “what is seven seconds when you have a life time” resonate repeatedly at the end of the track, immersing the listener in the vision Katie is expertly creating with her undoubted natural flair for music, mirroring the sound of more mature artists such as Feist and SOAK in the process.
Based in the north of Scotland’s Aberdeen, Katie’s profile has risen considerably in the last year or so. Having played and written with her father, singer-songwriter Charley Buchan who also runs Fit Like Records, Katie has managed to co-produce an album that has seen her reaching a bigger audience with each and every track released. Carve Every Word itself picked up great support from the likes of The Herald, Artrocker Magazine, Musos Guide, BBC Radio Scotland, STV, Clash Magazine, Folk Radio and Amelia’s Magazine.
The summer will see no respite for Katie as she heads to the US on tour in August.
You can stream and download album tracks 'He's Calling Me Over' and 'Talk' for free from the ABoF SoundCloud page.
Seven Seconds is out now via Fit Like Records and available to buy digitally on iTunes. . The single is taken from Best Girl Athlete's debut album Carve Every Word, available now on CD via BandCamp and digitally via iTunes.
