I’m about to go to bed, but I just found a new track by Kate Nash tonight. Not new, but less heard. Perhaps the darker companion to “Foundations,” “Old Dances” is the B-side on the 7″ single. Essentially an acapella, this timed ballad with minimal piano jumps between pensive, floating nonsense and short spurts of enthusiastic moments. “Old Dances” sounds as though it was lifted from the tracklist of Regina Spektor’s Begin To Hope, especially with the way the volume bounces between inaudibility to yelping, yet the miffed lyrics and heavily pronounced syllables solidify the track as positively Kate.
And you, what do you think?
