Kate Nash: Made of Bricks

Nick Southall, Stylus, 21 August 2007

TAKEN AT FACE VALUE, 20-year-old popstrel du jour Kate Nash is the Lily Allen it's OK to like — if you need a shot of something credible alongside your (ever so slightly) leftfield pop music. Look! She plays piano and guitar. Look! She's not the daughter of a notorious Brit Pack actor. Look! She's produced by Paul Epworth. Look! She's a child genius. Look! She came through the MySpace ranks. Look! She's been ruthlessly parodied by an internet prankster.
