Channeling that girl-power indie-rebel magic like Gin Wigmore and KT Tunstall before her, Kelsy Karter gives us her version of the femme fatale, with a tough veneer and some sharp personal weaponry. Catch Me If You Can is a modern pop single with elements of black leather and thick smoke; a guitar-driven backbone, and a some heavy attitude from the lead vocals.

This fits just right because it’s not complicated. The vibe is Versailles, circa the Age of Enlightenment, plus vampires. You have the plush furniture, the lace, and the teeth.

This song is featured on our CHILL Angeles playlist.
