It's a touching, down-tempo ballad that sets the Hobart native forward as a strong contender in indie-pop.

If you're yet to have the chance, make sure you find the time to acquaint yourself with Kat Edwards. In 2017, she emerged as an exciting new force is subtle indie-pop with her debut EP Sunk, a collection of seven songs that together, pushed the Canberra-born, Hobart-raised musician forward as a name to keep an eye on over the next few years. It was a sentiment shared by names including Stella Donnelly, Alex The Astronaut and Julien Baker, who each enlisted Kat to open for their respective shows, while she's also performed at festivals including Falls and Party In The Paddock; her live performances blossoming with the lessons she's learnt from years and years of busking in Hobart.
In 2019, however, she's got her eyes set on something bigger, and with her returning single Good Girl, it's well within her reach. Produced alongside two of Australia's strongest songwriting/production heavyweights - Xavier Dunn (Jack River, GRAACE, Ok Moon) and Oscar Dawson (Alex Lahey, Holy Holy, Ali Barter) - Good Girl is a moment of swirling pop that welcomes her delicate vocal with a matching, stripped-back instrumental, showcasing a refreshing vulnerability that sets it apart from everything else. "I wrote Good Girl after a very pivotal moment in my life," she says on the track. "I was feeling frustration towards myself for not doing what was best for me earlier."
Arriving with an official video produced by Hutch Collective and directed by Peter Sonic (Didirri, Ro), Good Girl welcomes Kat Edwards back as an exciting name in our scene as we approach the second half of the year, and, with the promise and potential held through her music and craft for creating special moments within, it wouldn't surprise me to see her become a national sensation before it ends.
