Theme Song: Kate Nash

December 2012: “Faith”

Collage by Minna, using a photo by Petra.

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.”

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.

If you want to pitch/submit a Rookie theme song by you or your band, please write to us at submissions@rookiemag.com, and write THEME SONG in the subject line.

    A few years ago, Merry Happy was totally my best friend’s and my jam. So when I saw her name, I thought for a minute about where I knew it from. Then: ‘dancing at discos, eating cheese on toast.’ Thank you, Rookie!

      Same here! It’s still one of my favorite songs

    Perfect for Christmas oh my god!

    GUYS GUYS GUYS! I love Kate Nash! Like, seriously, have you been hiding under my bed and reading my mind? Because I’ve been listening to her nonstop lately.

  • ShockHorror December 14th, 2012 10:50 AM

    She does have some good songs, but even so. Unimpressed with the bindi wearing in her recent video.

    Good on you guys for getting someone so well known I suppose.

  • rachelisms December 14th, 2012 11:21 AM

    Such a gorgeous pairing. The song is fab.

    On a slightly off-topic Nash related note. I’m massively in love with the direction she is taking with her music of late – you can tell how passionate she is about what she’s creating. It’s exciting to witness.

    Gah! I love Kate Nash! Her accent is the cutest and I really admire how passionate she is.

    this song is amazing!!! I have never really been a Kate Nash fan (I didn’t even realise that she was who I was talking to at the Rookie Road Trip!) but I will be soon hehe

  • Greer December 15th, 2012 6:22 AM

    this is soooooo rad! is there any way to download it so it’s compatible with itunes?

  • EmmaAmerica December 15th, 2012 2:05 PM

    Made of Bricks was my FAVOURITE EVER when I was ten-ish. It’s still in the top fiveish albums that I play all the time. ‘Birds’ is probably my favourite love song, ever.

    So. basically, this is the coolest thing, and I have probably played it upwards of fifty times so far and now I’m sure my fam are super annoyed at me, but it’s totally worth it!

  • gwen December 16th, 2012 11:25 AM

    How do you download this?

    • Anaheed December 16th, 2012 4:55 PM
