The title of Katie Frank’s single ‘Politician’ might be a little misleading. Not actually about politics, the single was written about a co-worker who was not a team player and only cared about promoting themselves.

As she draws on her real-life experience, she moulds the music to her create relatable stories that make you laugh, cry and sing along.

The instruments all bring their own flair to the music as they come together for a rather irresistible melody. The guitar riffs that creep along the verses are great as they add a hint of sarcasm to the music while the beats are the heart of the music.

The chorus is a delightful call-out as she confronts the person and lets them know that she understands what they are doing.
