We’re still waiting for news of Kate Teague’s debut album, but with singles like these, how can we complain? Her latest is “In Our Element,” released via Muscle Beach Records Wednesday ahead of the Oxford, Miss., singer-songwriter’s first SXSW.
“In Our Element,” fittingly, finds Teague inhabiting her twang-tinged indie-rock sweet spot, her rhythm guitar subdued and built upon by slow-burning, oft-bent lead notes. “It’s in my head, I’ll push it away / I’m glad to have you here anyway,” she sings.
Teague explains that she “wrote this song in response to completely misinterpreting someone’s body language at a series of parties. I began falling in love with the idea that someone was falling in love with me, but I ultimately realized it was all in my head.”
“In Our Element” is the latest in Teague’s aforementioned string of killer singles, following “Gilly, “Good to You” and “Low Life,” all three of which were released in 2018. As for her debut album, all we know for now is that it’s coming sometime in early 2019.
Teague will perform at SXSW alongside New Zealand’s French For Rabbits.
