Derrière Black Belt Eagle Scout, se cache Katherine Paul. La jeune femme a grandi dans une réserve d’indien où elle a appris à jouer de la musique et à chanter. Elle joue d’à peu près tout, écrit et compose en solo.
Son second album « At the Party With My Brown Friends » est sorti en aout dernier avec des influences allant de Beach House pour son côté onirique à Sharon van Etten pour les allures indie rock aux influences 90’s.


Released in September of 2018, Mother of My Children was the debut album from Black Belt Eagle Scout, the recording project of Katherine Paul. Heralded as a favorite new musician of 2018 by the likes of NPR Music, Stereogum, and Paste, the album was also named as a “Best Rock Album of 2018” by Pitchfork, and garnered further end-of-year praise from FADER, Under The Radar and more.

Arriving just a year after that debut record, At the Party With My Brown Friends is a brand new full-length recording from Black Belt Eagle Scout. Where that first record was a snapshot of loss and landscape and of KP’s standing as a radical indigenous queer feminist, this new chapter finds its power in love, desire and friendship.

At the Party With My Brown Friends is a profound and understated forward step. The squalling guitar anthems that shaped its predecessor are replaced by delicate vocals and soft keys, sentiments spoken and unspoken, presenting something shadowy and unsettling; a stirring of the waters.

The end result presents a captivating about-face that redefines KP’s beautifully singular artistic vision. At the Party With My Brown Friends is introduced in greater detail here via a new statement by the artist.

At the Party With My Brown Friends, Black Belt Eagle Scout’s second full-length album, is out August 30,, 2019 on Saddle Creek.
