Thursday, November 5, 2015

Canadian born and Byron Bay local Garrett Kato released his highly anticipated record The Low and Lonesome Sound recently and is currently on a major tour opening for Pete Murray. He took some time out to take part in our latest edition of 'What Song...'

What song reminds you of your youth?
“My Own Summer - Deftones” That song reminds me of skateparks and ibanez 7 string guitars. Oh how the times have changed. 

What song is your ultimate party track?
At the moment I’m loving anything from Danny Brown for a party vibe. Maybe the song “DIP” would be choice!

What song do you listen to before you jump on stage?
At the moment with the Pete Murray tour it would have to be “Eye of the Tiger” mainly because I feel like a boxer trying to win over a crowd every night!

What song would you make your theme song?
Like if I were a pro Wrestler what my theme song be? Easy.. Jurassic Park’s theme song. It’s so romantic and adventurous at the same time.

What song reminds you of your first heartbreak?
“Clay Pigeons” - Blaze Foley

What do you have on repeat right now?
“How Much a Dollar Cost?” - Kendrick Lamar and “Speed Trap Town” - Jason Isbell. Both soo amazing with great melodies and incredible lyrics. 

What song is your guilty pleasure?
“Bad Blood” - Taylor Swift the girls look so cool in the music video and Taylor is conjuring some magic in those explosion scenes.
