Kat Hamilton is an LA based singer-songwriter who builds vivid vignettes out of deep-cut lyricism and lush soundscapes rooted in setting. Her latest EP, I wish this was a love story, is a five-track coastal daydream that ruminates on the bends of falling in and out of love.
I wish this was a love story feels like riding a rollercoaster on a beachside pier. The pitched up acoustics, dopamine-laced riffs, and saccharine vocal will enthrall you in a web of sugar-spun bliss. Hamilton paints each moment with a stirring palette of never before seen colors as she drifts through her imaginative archive of memory.
The EP is unlimited by genre as Hamilton allows each story to be told with a different degree of intensity and energy. At one moment, she’ll have your head up in the clouds with her sunshine-brazen pop opener “Lightning Bug” and at the next she’ll have you all choked up with her stirring ballad closer on “No Regrets”.
For every twist and turn of Hamilton’s visceral journey, there’s a moment of pure beauty that sticks with you long after the EP’s finish. Hamilton is undoubtedly an artist to keep on your radar for her powerful sense of storytelling and ethereal nature in sonic construction.
