From what I've heard, most folk punk seems to lean more towards the folk side than the punk side. That's not the case with Katie MF. Her latest single, "Confidence Crisis," may be a mid-tempo rocker, but it's mostly her vocals that inspire comparisons to punk. Her vocals are just dripping with punk venom and make the song seem much heavier than it is musically. Her press releases refer to her style as "punk-folk." It may seem like a minor designation, but once you hear "Confidence Crisis" it becomes a huge difference.
You can listen to "Confidence Crisis" below. Fall Starts, Open Endings is due out September 15 on Lockjaw Records. For more on Katie MF, check out the artist's website.
