Katie Rush recently teamed up with Samantha Urbani (Friends / Blood Orange) on her new single “Dangerous Luv” (free download), an illicit pop song about a veiled love affair. “Dangerous Luv” is the second single off Katie Rush’s debut EP, Law of Attraction which was produced by Sam Mehran (Test Icicles, Outer Limitz) and Zak Mering (Raw Thrills, Greatest Hits) and is out now on Gunk TV Records. “Dangerous Luv” comes a month after Katie’s first single, “Law of Attraction” which premiered last month on The FADER
“Law of Attraction”
“The ’80s-drenched “Law of Attraction” is the kind of thing that the Breakfast Club kids would be mooning about to in a reflective montage scene given half the chance.” – FADER
Katie Rush is the creation of Katie Wagner, Sam Mehran (Test Icicles, Outer Limitz) and Zak Mering (Raw Thrills, Greatest Hits, Gunk TV Records). With Sam and Zak’s ever-innovative musical wizardry and the sum of all of their visions for dominating the indie pop 80’s vibe, Katie Rush was born from the ashes of Katie Wagner’s dying dream of pop superstardom. Over the years, worshiping the likes of David Bowie and Ariel Pink, weirdo pop became an obsession for Katie, who went to many rock shows to develop this taste, a merger between more experimental sounds and her earlier dedication to pure mainstream pop and musical theater / rock operas, in particular, Tommy, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Lagaan, Gypsy, The Little Mermaid, Dark Side of the Moon, Phantom of the Paradise, Hair, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Labyrinth.
Having left hometown NYC and returned in her 20’s to discover Brooklyn, Katie found a new appreciation for music a little less predictable, a little more raw. That’s when the flames of her love for performing and singing were reignited, going to places where performance and art thrived with no limits. At some point she learned of Sam’s and Zak’s musical acts, Outer Limits Recordings, and Raw Thrills and Greatest Hits, respectively. There was no way these guys weren’t musical geniuses, out-of-this-world in their craft.
