I've wanted Katie Brouillette-Serbian, bassist, guitarist, vocalist, and more importantly, song writer for Cheap Curls to record an album of her bittersweet power pop since I first met her nearly a decade ago. At the time, she was very much in love with my best friend who was constantly promoting her prolific song writing prowess to me At that point, however, Katie was stricken with fright when it came down to sharing her home recorded bedroom pop. Katie strummed on, continuing to discover new personal ground and gain the courage that only these turbulent and accelerated times call for. She joined the much loved maudlin act Dum Dum Girls and began traveling the world consistently even recording on the act's second full length release, Only In Dreams. Katie had grown up, so to speak, in clubs and on festival stages around the world and was now confident both in her musical and personal life enough to call time on her position in Dum Dum Girls and begin the exciting stages of recording and releasing an album of her own. She's an exciting musical mind who can wail like Dolly Parton "In Your Arms", and serenade like Roy Orbison in "Message". She also has an exceeding amount of chops as heard on the Blondie-esque "Jackie Oh." Songwriters such as Paul Weller and Pete Perrett are seemingly over looked on American shores. Let's give Cheap Curls the praise she deserves. The debut EP will be released on California's Art Fag Recordings this year.
