Kashka is the moniker for Forest City Lovers’ Kat Burns and her friends and collaborators. She started writing these songs in 2009 with the help of James Bunton (Ohbijou, Light Fires), where the two would collaborate over long distances (Bunton on tour with Ohbijou, composing beats in the van and Burns sequestered away on Toronto Island for a composition residency). The winter of 2011/2012 had Kat assembling what was to be her full length debut in Vichada; a recording process that pushed Kat to think outside her normal songwriting process and channel this new voice.
Look for the record out July 17th, recommended for fans of School of Seven Bells. Here’s “This Machine”.
