UK Artist of the Week: Coltana

Sitting comfortably somewhere between the raucous, rawness of Bikini Kill and Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner’s uncanny ability to make colloquial lyricism feel absolutely effortless, Coltana could very well be your next favourite UK rock group.

Their energetic new single “Break Her” tackles the subject of how women are seen within society and how they are often forced to compete with each other as a result of other people’s opinions. The single is oozing with racing riffs and infectious hooks that are a welcome comeback from the early ’00s. Lead singer Catherine Martindale’s London accent adds an extra lovely layer to this already addictive piece of alt-rock.

Having originally formed under the alias Poeticat, founding members Blake Kenrick (guitar) and Catherine decided to re-form under the new name Coltana alongside members Hugo Tevra (drums) and Gordon Duncan (bass) and the rest, as they say, is history.

“Break Her” by Coltana is out on 19th May 2017 via Poetical Presents.
