Kate Bollinger Signs to Ghostly, Shares Video for New Song

    Richmond, VA-based artist Kate Bollinger has signed to Ghostly International and shared her first single for the label, ‘Yards / Gardens’. Co-written with her longtime collaborator John Trainum and guitarist Chris Lewis, the track comes with an accompanying video from director Mitch deQuilettes. Check it out below.

    ‘Yards / Gardens’ reflects “feeling resistant to change, during a time when it felt like everything was changing,” Bollinger said in a statement about the track. Of the video, deQuilettes added: “For ‘Yards / Gardens,’ Kate and I wanted to take the sonic spirit of the track and translate its feeling into the video instead of using the direct lyrical meaning. We wanted to give homage to 60’s & 70’s films such as Godard’s ‘Pierrot Le Fou,’ Melville’s ‘Le Cercle Rouge’ and Altman’s ‘The Long Goodbye.’ It was important to us to keep the piece campy and light, while keeping it grounded in realism.”

    Along with the news, Kate Bollinger has also announced a 2022 European tour, including stops in London, Manchester, and Paris. Find the full list of dates below.
