Kate Clover • Heaven Down Here • 2022

"Further cements her rock-star reputation [...] Dizzying and delightfully retro with a present-day pulse, the track blazes forward on Clover’s vocals and guitar."
Cool Hunting

"As a whole, Cut The Wire produces an outstanding exemplar of the artist’s road to self-discovery, and builds more anticipation than ever for the release of her LP [...] Bleed Your Heart Out promises to be a true testament to the fringe cultures of skating and surfing which surrounded the artist growing up."

"With an electrifying soundscape that draws influence from the likes of Suicide, Primal Scream and the Gun Club, the cover cuts deeply into Clover’s authentic rock sound, as she makes the well-loved song completely her own."

With Patti Smith and Iggy Pop as her artistic North Stars, Clover mastered three chords and defected to art school, where she learned to play “Chinese Rocks” by Johnny Thunders, and wrote her first song. She cut her teeth playing in various projects but was determined to go solo, seeking independence and total control. In 2019 she parted ways with her former bands and was in search of a new start. In need of self-discovery and an escape from her life in America, she headed to Mexico City to write. A four day trip turned into four months, as Clover decided to stay and record her album. Upon her return to the US she assembled a band and quickly carved out a space for herself in the LA scene. Earning a rep for explosive live shows, Clover spent 2019 hitting the road with Death Valley Girls, Crocodiles, King Dude and SadGirl. After independently releasing her first single last year, Clover’s first offering of 2020 is a new mix of “Channel Zero” by Carlos de la Garza (Cherry Glazerr, Bleached, Paramore, Wolf Alice) ahead of an upcoming EP.
