Catching Up With Kate Nash

My favorite thing about Kate Nash -- and there's lots to love about her -- is the way she takes the most mundane parts of life (jealousy, insecurity, the desire to snog without having to deal with commitment) and presents them as meaningful, universal moments that we can all relate to. Her latest album, My Best Friend Is You, picks up where her celebrated debut album, Made of Bricks, left off with more relationship woes but ventures further into the cosmos of life experience with more experimental tracks (both musically and lyrically) about everything from coming out to catching an STD from a cheating boyfriend.
I recently met up with Kate in her NYC hotel room as she was wrapping up her North American tour to chat about why writing about relationships always makes for good songs, homophobia and the song "I've Got A Secret," and why she loves touring in the U.S.:
My Best Friend Is You is now in stores and available for download on iTunes. Nash will kick off her upcoming U.K. tour in Stoke-On-Trent on March 20 and wrap it up in Carlisle on April 7. To purchase tickets, click here. For more info on Nash, visit her official website and follow her on Twitter.
