Steele has emerged as a fully-fledged solo artist. As sole songwriter and co-producer, Katy Steele has crafted a unique record that is sonically adventurous and bold; nothing about this new direction is subtle or safe. Combining gospel-like melodies with fractured, glitch-ridden electro-pop production, ‘Human’ marks a refreshing and timely presence within the pop music landscape. ‘Human’ debut at #23 on the ARIA Album chart and will be showcased all next week on Double J as their Feature Album. The LP has gathered glowing reviews with the likes of The Sydney Morning Herald declaring “plugging the songwriter and co-producer into the modern alternative-pop landscape via atmospheric digital percussion and conducive electronic rock arrangements.” And Forte stating “Human… marks a seriously bold return to the industry ... at times gospel, haunting and with tribal rhythms underpinning each track. … The pop tones are still there, but they’re darker, wiser and more worldly than before.”
