Katie Gately

American experimental electronic musician Katie Gately utilizes a plethora of computer programs to reshape her voice into dense, occasionally unsettling sound constructions. Her unpredictable compositions run from industrial collages to playful, abstract pop tunes, exhibiting an absurdist sense of humor and an ear for rhythm and melody. Raised in Brooklyn and currently based in LA, Gately earned a degree in film production and sound design from the University of Southern California but never formally trained as a musician. In 2012, she began uploading her compositions to Soundcloud and by late 2013 she had released a self-titled 12" EP on Public Information and an EP cassette on Blue Tapes. Following a limited lathe cut 7” single with Prayer on FET Press, Gately was invited to contribute to FatCat Records' split series, sharing an EP with Tlaotlon. In 2015, Gately appeared on Nosaj Thing's Fated LP and remixed Björk's song "Family”. Her first two EP’s were celebrated by NPR, Fact, Quietus, Stereogum, Drowned in Sound, Pop Matters, and many more. Her debut longplayer was released on TriAngle Records in 2016.

Gately’s songs are infectious the way pop should be but without perfunctory lyrics, and they stick to you because what Gately creates ends up sounding just so very big…[Color] is a blockbuster of a debut. - Pitchfork

In 2018, Abelton produced a documentary about Gately’s creative process and last year she also produced 6 of the 11 songs on serpentwithfeet's debut LP soil.   She has recently finished production on her sophomore LP and will be performing this summer at Mary Anne Hobb’s curated, Queens of the Underground Festival in Manchester.
