Waxahatchee goes coast to coast

It’s already been a whirlwind year for Alabama-born Katie Crutchfield. The release of her sophomore longplayer under the moniker Waxahatchee last month in the US earned ‘Best New Music’ and an 8.4 album score from Pitchfork as well as the ‘SPIN Essentials’ tag. This was followed by a heap of shows at SXSW and she is now playing her first ever run of European dates, supporting Tegan And Sara

On top of all this, she’s revealed a nostalgic and summery video for the current single ‘Coast To Coast’, released on 23 June. Filmed at Waxahatchee Creek in Alabama, the very place that inspired her name, it features Katie and her twin sister Alison playing guitar, messing around in the sun and diving into the lake with their doggie.
