Canadian born, London based pop singer Cate releases the animated country infused acoustic track, ‘One Hit Wonder’ – stream here.

Drawing influence from early noughties country pop records, One Hit Wonder is an end of summer anthem which reflects on a past lover who emulates the same excitement and sudden abandonment as a one hit wonder does. Referencing Thin Lizzy’s ‘The Boys Are Back In Town’, Fountains of Wayne’s ‘Stacy’s Mom’, Toploader’s ‘Dancing in the Moonlight’ alongside many more, Cate’s lyricism continues to flare with creative artistry.

Talking about the track, Cate explains: “I wrote One Hit Wonder with my friends last summer after making a joke that a man that I was dating was one. Then the joke went a bit too far when we wrote a whole song out of a whole bunch of one hit wonders. It’s about someone who only really gives you one good summer of fun, but never anything else. And as much as you want to get the song out of your head – you just can’t.”

After taking to the stage as Maisie Peters’ support act on her recent tour and performing to a packed out crowd at this year’s The Great Escape Festival in Brighton, Cate continues to lure in new listeners with her infectious and confessional pop. Inspired by the likes of Dolly Parton and childhood hero Hannah Montana, Cate combines sugary pop-hues against playful yet vulnerable lyricism, drawing resemblance to noughties-era Taylor Swift.

Racking up over 10 million overall listeners on Spotify since her debut single in 2019, with monthly listeners rising to 630k, Cate shows no sign of slowing down, with a support slot for Australian singer songwriter Gretta Ray kicking off this month across Australia and a UK headline tour all happening this year.

The headline shows kick off this Autumn, making stops in Leeds, Glasgow, Manchester, Dublin, Birmingham, Bristol and London throughout October. Tickets are on sale now at
