Hot Press Track of the Day: Cat Turner's 'Waster'

One of the most promising voices in electro-pop, Galway-based newcomer Cat Turner brings us her haunting new track ‘Waster’ from her debut EP.

The electro-synth artist has steadily gained fans with her own niche of 'goth pop', which has signalled the young producer-singer as one to watch. There is an uneasy balance on ‘Waster’ that feels at any moment about to be disturbed; the shadowy synths and deep bass making for an unnerving mood of menace.

Having started producing a year ago, Cat has honed the nurtured sound that we hear now and shows immense technical maturity. She takes her cues from acts like Grimes and Tove Lo, and incorporates elements of electro and alt-pop that evoke her own keen sense of her own identity. Cat builds a visual style around her sound, choosing to make bold and artistic statements while defying convention. “The reason I started producing and doing everything myself first came from a place of necessity… now it comes from a place of total passion. It scared me to do it myself, which was the exact reason I had to.”
