Hand Me My Bow And Arrow

Hand Me My Bow And Arrow is the second album from Kate Martin. As the title suggests, it was a difficult second album, but not for the usual reasons of writer’s block and procrastination. Instead, Kate was beset by a series of personal battles throughout the writing and recording process, beginning with the divorce of her parents, compounded by lost jobs, discarded boyfriends, unpaid rent and culminating in being evacuated from her house to escape a cyclone. Reflecting the different themes of the album, Hand Me My Bow And Arrow is an exploration of different musical styles, each showcasing Kate’s unique, harp-like fingerpicking guitar style and dreamy vocals. Even though the writing of the album came together quickly, the recording process took a torturous 18 months. Having to travel from her home town of Townsville to Sydney’s Love Hz Studios to record, Kate squeezed in sessions between touring. While most of the 100+ instruments played on the album were shared between Kate and producer Michael Carpenter, a few friends also joined in on vocals and various instruments, including Bree Tranter and Rohin Jones from the now defunct band The Middle East.'With everything that was going on, it didn’t feel like very long at all. When it was over though, I realised how much we had actually done and it seemed like such a long time ago since we started'. Like Kate’s first album, Hand Me My Bow and Arrow is a complex, eclectic album that reveals more upon each listen. It will be released through Shock Records on March 23.
