Candle Burnin’, Wax Drippin’ is the second single released from Kate Martin's upcoming sophomore album, Hand Me My Bow And Arrow, and is a pretty slice of Blasko/Feist/that chick out of The Cardigans loveliness.
According to Kate, Hand Me My Bow And Arrow, was a difficult second album to make, but not for the usual reasons of writer’s block or procrastination. Instead, the Aussie songstress was beset by a series of battles throughout the writing and recording process, beginning with family breakdown, and followed up by lost jobs, discarded boyfriends, unpaid rent and being evacuated from her house to escape a cyclone. “The album came together surprisingly easily”, Kate explains, “I wasn’t exactly short of material to write about." Candle Burnin’ Wax Drippin' is about the relationship that you know will fail from the start, but you stay in it regardless.
Kate is playing a special album preview show March 15th at Oxford Arts Factory in Sydney.
