The New Kate Ellis Single ‘Scars’ Is A Story About The Fine Line Between Love and Hate
Scars by Kate Ellis is a damaged love song about the balance and interplay between love and hate in relationships. Kate was born in Louisiana, raised in New York, and now lives in London. Her path as an artist began when she decided to forego her law degree and start writing songs instead. The result was her acclaimed ‘Carve Me Out’ album, released in 2017.
Her new song ‘Scars’, released on the 7th of January 2022, is from her long-awaited follow-up second album, ‘Spirals,’ which is set to be released on the 4th of February 2022. Like all the songs on the new record, ‘Scars’ is produced by John Reynolds who has produced iconic artists like Sinéad O’Connor, the Indigo Girls and Damien Dempsey.
Kate gets her musical inspiration from classic singer-songwriters like Mary Chapin Carpenter, Leonard Cohen, Nanci Griffith and others – this track also draws from more contemporary Americana artists like Hayes Carll and Andrew Combs. According to Kate, the songs on the album Spirals create “a series of scenes, moments and moods”. But while some tracks are more emotional, beautiful and tender, Scars by contrast: “makes you feel like you’ve just walked into a rowdy bar where two lovers are arguing like cats and dogs, but then kiss and make up.”
Kate says she loves the humour in it and how even after the passionate and stormy fights in this relationship, love and togetherness remains in the end. Don’t forget to check her out on social media: Instagram, Faebook, Twitter.
