Bio

Hannah Kate have earned themselves a reputation for their raucous live shows and their intelligent brand of rock and roll. They’ve attracted a diverse audience with frontwoman Hannah’s exciting songwriting ability, her sense of humour and her DIY attitude.

Their debut single ‘Cry July’ was described by Claire Mooney as ‘..a feel-good punchy af slice of let's enjoy being careless and free. What a soundtrack.’ In January this year the band released their second single, ‘Moreland,’ which Dave Ruby Howe stated was a ‘..sensational follow up to ‘Cry July’, which I loved. This is full of layering and brains and the warm and fuzzies.’ ‘Moreland’ was subsequently featured in the Unearthed ’Top 5 Songs of the Week’ podcast. Throughout 2019 Hannah and the band kept busy. They supported Ali Barter, Bad//Dreems and Lime Cordiale to name a few.

Now, Melbourne garage rock princess Hannah Kate has returned with the release of a stellar single by the name of ‘Sunday Mourning’. The song, which probably feels all too relatable in the current climate, showcases frontwoman Hannah Kate’s smooth vocals and warm storytelling ability.
“Stuck somewhere between dream and nightmare, ‘Sunday Mourning’ captures the lethargy and languid listlessness of that limbo between energy and apathy, hope and hopelessness.” - Ivy Emily (HUM Zines)

Definitely think you captured this accurate feeling of a strange halfway house of mixed feelings. Felt like a hazy purgatory with a wondering finish.

more five and a half min songs on triple j Unearthed dot com! esp. when they're as far-reaching and hypnotic as this.
