Premiere: Garrett Kato teases something big with a new single, Control

Setting the Canadian-Australian musician back on the radar, Control is the first tease of a larger Garrett Kato project to come.

Over the last seven years (!), Canadian-born, Australia-based musician Garrett Kato has blossomed into an essential name in dizzying indie-folk-pop, whether it be through his own work – his June-released new EP Distant Land being the last greater release – or behind-the-scenes, working with some other incredible acts in that space from Ziggy Alberts to Perth's own Riley Pearce. He's one of Australia's most celebrated and adored songwriters, working closely with some of our biggest acts while also pushing incredible music out on his own right, the latter of which usually exploring this subtle, hook-driven indie sound that feels like a breath of fresh air as this scene continues to saturate and deepen with new talent seemingly arriving every week.

Now, going into the later-end of 2019 and into a bright 2020 ahead, Garrett Kato is placing the focus back on himself for a bit. With Control, premiering on Pilerats today ahead of a greater release tomorrow, Garrett Kato teases a bigger project set to arrive sometime last year, debuting another track full of his rich indie charm as subtle melodies meet enchanting vocals that swirl with that signature Kato bliss. Arriving with an accompanying video clip, Garrett Kato says the video comes from this greater idea of a multiverse, as we'll let him explain: "The inspiration of this clip comes from the concept of a multiverse," he says. "The idea that we are one channel of a multilayered existence and what would happen if we had to face ourselves?"

2019's not over just quite yet, but with a big, big 2020 planned and plenty more to come, dive into Control below:
