Kate Nash exploded onto the scene in 2007 with her quirky and eminently relatable hit “Foundations,” a hook-laden narrative about a delightfully dysfunctional couple. The song earned her a slew of fans, though very little indie cred–Pitchfork scoffed, and at the Record Collector they were literally giving away the 7” single. Still, Nash fits squarely within the rich tradition of snarky UK pop songwriting, from Kirsty MacColl and Nellie McKay to The Streets. Her debut album, Made of Bricks, was fun and slightly raunchy; follow-up My Best Friend is You was released last year to less attention, but with equally great songwriting. She’s astute, entertaining, and has a great accent, which puts this one firmly in the must-see category.
