Cat Burns is the first face of Clash 127.

Cat Burns is an understated MVP. She was the UK’s highest-selling female artist in 2022 and was nominated for three BRIT awards the following year. Her super-smash
breakout single ‘go’ went two-times platinum in the UK and she’s performed in massive
arenas on the international tour circuit supporting Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith.
Yet she remains the humble, girl-next-door you’d love to have as your best friend.
Navigating the vagaries of the music industry as a young Black queer woman, Cat Burns is unafraid to speak her truth, and this honesty is what fans dial into.

Whether it’s her No. 2 viral smash ‘go’ or her much-anticipated debut album, Cat seizes
hold of each opportunity, pushing it to the max. In this extensive cover interview, she
looks back on her roots, discusses the stresses of fame, and the reciprocal relationship
this sensational vocalist has with her fans. As she puts it: “As long as you are honest and true, that shines through in the art you create…”

Elsewhere in this issue you’ll obtain access to electronic enigmas Mount Kimbie, and
explore the world of rising songwriter Elmiene. CLASH profiles English Teacher’s
inspirational front-woman Lily Fontaine, before meeting Alice Phoebe Lou. We
encounter American force Sleater-Kinney, and dissect Yoko Ono’s new career-
spanning London exhibition. Kickstarting our 20th anniversary year in style, we also welcome Franz Ferdinand’s Alex Kapranos – our first ever cover star – to dissect nostalgia and the weight of the past in an exclusive essay.
