The duo Call Her Kate consists of the drummer Fredrik Okazaki and the guitarist Carl-Johan Bohlin, where one of them lives in Tokyo and the other one in Stockholm. Apparently the collaboration works fine in spite of the distance, as they in September released the excellent EP “Color Kay”, where they also get assistance from singers like Tomas Rusiak, Paola, Jonna Lee, Malena Uamba, Seinabo Sey and others.
Modern pop they write themselves, and it is, but an alternative, creative variation rather than a common mainstream one. You’ll find five tracks on the EP, each one with it’s own character, good melodies, unexpected harmonies and playfulness. Here below are two songs.
