Brooklyn based Rebel Pop recording artist Katie Costello has premiered the first track off her forthcoming “New World” EP, due out on July 28th (Rebel Pop Records). AXS.com premiered the titular single, which Costello described as “[a song] about staying positive and doing what's right in order to make the world a better place.”
Rebel Pop Records artist and co-founder Katie Costello has a new and fresh vision for modern pop music. With her anthemic slabs of pop positivity, tracks like “New World” burst at the seams with the kind of upbeat open-mindedness that a world currently in turmoil needs. In a recent interview with Pur Opulence, Costello described her uplifting messages of unity, diversity, and hope: “I call my style of music Rebel Pop. It’s “rebel” because I’m the artist, composer, music publisher and record label – doing it authentically and independently. It’s “pop” because it’s feel good music that is intended for everyone.”
Costello’s unique brand of pop music has already received rave reviews and praise from music industry tastemakers. Los Angeles based NPR affiliate KCRW’s Nic Harcourt featured Katie on his “Today’s Top Tune” show, and praised Costello for her mature songwriting and “making her path clear.” Interview Magazine has called Katie’s vocals “pristine and smoky,” and compared her to Ingrid Michaelson and Regina Spektor. Paste praised Katie for her “unique take on an oft-stilted genre.” With a new EP titled “New World” due out this July and a third full-length album to be released in October, Katie Costello is ready to take her bright and assured “Rebel Pop” to the next level.
Katie Costello recently wrapped up a string of live shows in Denver and Los Angeles, and will be playing a record release show at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC on July 28th.
