Katie Kim is the pseudonym of Katie Sullivan when she performs and records her Slowcore, ethereal, ambient folk/pop.
De-tuned guitars and sparse piano playing, walls of loops and echoing vocals come to the fore along with grisly tones, haunting and experimental flavours for sounds, all of which is executed with subtle simplicity. Paired with a voice that reviewers and fans alike, have tried to liken to many making their mark today , but end up agreeing, that Katie Kim’s style is entirely of her own making.
Katie Kim has released two studio albums to date: Twelve in 2008 and Cover & Flood in 2012 (UK release 2013). She has also scored an original soundtrack for the 1928 surrealist Germain Dulac silent film, "La Coquille et Le Clergyman", commissioned by The Cork French Film Festival, which she also performed with her full band, live, in front of a sold out audience. Most recent album Salt has been hailed as her finest work yet, receiving a nomination for Choice Music Prize Album Of The Year. An elusive and captivating performer, we're delighted to have her with us in Dingle in the IMRO Other Room this December.
