Katie Gately's 'Waltz' Video Stars Dancer Bobbi Jene Smith
Following lead single Bracer, new track Waltz originated after Gately listened to her late mother’s favourite artist Leonard Cohen's track 'Take This Waltz' on repeat for an entire day. Her track pulses with a demented survivalist’s mulishness, and reflects the sleepless headspace Gately was in when her mother’s health began a rapid decline. The accompanying video directed by Samantha Shay was filmed at an abandoned Catholic convent and stars famed modern dancer Bobbi Jene Smith opposite Gately, who appears in her own video for the first time ever.
On February 14th Houndstooth will release Katie Gately's 'Loom', her new album dedicated to her mother who passed away in 2018 due to a sudden onset of a particularly aggressive form of cancer.
