Coming across like Kate Nash’s edgy little cousin Alice Kat combines straight to the point vocals with melody driven songs. You get some smooth synth pop moments which give texture to a sparkling album driven by an indie rock heart. Kat’s real strength is her unpretentious delivery which makes each song very easy to connect with. The matter of fact lyrics are so much more believable, so much more engaging sung this way rather than belted out like so many wannabe pop divas do these days. The songs aren’t especially complicated, they don’t need to be, but they are played with skill and they’re arranged beautifully. The production too is in keeping with the writing. It’s kept quite stark rather than going full gloss which helps to highlight the vocals. Telephone Conversations as the name implies is about how the phone has become such an integral part of our lives. It’s a simple and yet clever album. One of those why didn’t I think of it concepts. Above all it showcases the talents of Alice Kat perfectly.
