Kate Nash is our dreamgirl. Her lyrics are sometimes like short stories, sometimes like scenes from movies, and sometimes like a letter from your best friend. Her melodies have the push and pull of actual human emotions. She sings like an angel. And she’s just cool and strong and she supports women and girls and artists and activists, and when she decided to start producing music the first band she worked with was our BFFs Supercute!

So imagine our total rapture when Kate agreed to write and record our December theme song. Our hearts are still aflutter! Yours will be too when you listen to this gorgeous holiday tune, called “Faith.”


Kate Nash’s new album, Girl Talk, comes out in spring 2013. You can pre-order it on her website, where you can also buy her latest EP, Death Proof, and watch a video for the song of the same name.
