Scottish singer songwriter Kate Buchan just released her second album as Best Girl Athlete. The self titled release is out now via Fitlike Records. The latest single off the record is a stark, striking gem named Lucy, inspired by the film of the same name starring Scarlett Johansson and directed by Luc Besson. With it, the compelling musician continues to blur the lines between folksy alt pop and orchestral indie rock, all the while bewitching us with her brittle and willowy yet sonorous ringing voice. Lucy feels honest and raw, weathered and earnest. The single arrives with a B-side named Frayed, which you can stream below. Mournful strings and gorgeous piano guide us through the poignant and sorrowful dirge. Both songs are available from iTunes, here.

If music were a sport, there’d be no doubt that Best Girl Athlete is one of the top players in the indie game. Scottish singer songwriter Kate Buchan is preparing to release her self titled sophomore album on October 2nd via Fitlike Records. On the heels of last month’s preview, In Your Head, comes this bewitching song, Baby Come Home, oh so sweetly drenched in misty melancholy but rooted to the earth with its delicate twang. Jack Hughes chimes in with an unexpected rap verse, creating a transfixing juxtaposition on the genre defying single.

I love watching sports, and I love playing sports. I only wish I could be really good at it, too. I’d love the title of “best girl athlete”, but I’m pretty sure I’ll never be bestowed that honor in this lifetime. I don’t know how great of an athlete Kate Buchan is, but this gifted singer songwriter from Scotland who releases music under the name Best Girl Athlete is definitely a phenomenal musician. She recently announced a self titled sophomore album to follow on her 2015 debut, Carve Every Word, and it features this intrepid marching, vigorous stomping fusion of folktronica, indie rock, and pop named In Your Head. It’s uptempo and plucky, yet cinematic and dark. There’s no escaping from its brassy resolute grasp. Best Girl Athlete’s eponymous self titled album will be out on October 2nd via Fitlike Records.
