Katie Wood shines in ‘Uh Huh Yeah’
London-based artist Katie Wood tackles the emotions of agoraphobia in her new single ‘Uh Huh Yeah’. The new release follows on from her previous release ‘Steve’ and shines with its warm 80’s sound.
‘Uh Huh Yeah’ depicts Katie Wood as she struggles with agoraphobia and the powerless feeling it entails. “I couldn’t face leaving my flat, let alone go to work or see my friends and I just felt so powerless”, reveals Wood. “So the song is about that feeling and in many ways accepting it as a way to move on through it, I do believe that you have to face your fears to overcome them.”
Thus, despite the emotions of powerlessness, fustration and fear it explores, the song is also heartwarming with its exploration of hope and self-acceptance. With ‘Uh Huh Yeah’, Wood hopes to provide her listeners with power and comfort. We are not alone in this world, and this postivity definitely shines through the track’s dream pop sound, 80’s drums and emotional vocals. The fuzziness of the track also warmly nods to the spheres of post-punk, glam rock and new wave. In terms of vocal comparison, ‘Uh Huh Yeah’ sounds like a likely lovechild of a collaboration between Haim and Kate Bush.
