Katie Von Schleicher Announces Debut Album & Shares “Paranoia”


Katie Von Schleicher announces her debut full-length album, Shitty Hits, for release on July 28th via Full Time Hobby Records in the UK and Europe and Ba Da Bing Records in the US. Today she also shared a video for the lead single, “Paranoia,” which was directed by Matt Strickland.

Katie said the following about the track:

‘Paranoia’ is the first song I wrote for Shitty Hits. It’s an attempt to crystallize a feeling which would later be embodied in different forms throughout the album. Deciding to self-produce — to make this maximal and woozy sound I was dying to hear — has been as humbling as it is ecstatic. The isolation of that process isn’t unlike the isolation of anxiety or depression, or the struggle for perspective. I’m human, I get sad, I feel powerless. But learning to love the thing that can’t love you back… it’s at least worth a try.

Katie Von Schleicher will be touring the UK and Europe in May as a special guest of Aldous Harding, with a London show at Omeara on 22nd May 2017. Full live dates are as follows:
