Katie Herzig's New Track "Drug" Is Just That

At Refinery29, our ethos of discovery means that we are always keeping our ear to the ground, hoping to unearth the very best new artist, or an exciting collaboration from a musician we already know and love. Which is why we take our music very seriously, and don't put our stamp of approval on anything that we don't already have on our own iPod/Spotify/various listening devices. So, you can imagine we are particularly excited to premiere a song from Katie Herzig off of Walk Through Walls, out April 8, 2014. Here is what you gotta know:
Who? Katie Herzig, the girl whose music you've been listening to forever, you just didn't know who she was. (It's high time you met her.)
How long has she been around? Herzig has been on the scene since '97!
What does she sound like? She sounds like your best, most memorable dream — only more awesome.
When should you listen to her? There comes a time during everyone's day where silence won't do, but talking won't, either. Then, Katie Herzig makes the perfect companion.
If this song was an ice cream flavor, it would be: We're going to go out on a limb and say it'd be rocky road with a caramel core.
Herzig first popped up on our radar back in 2009 with her tongue-in-cheek single "Hey Na Na." Since then, she's been a staple in our libraries for almost every occasion. She's maintained her cheeky sounds through the years, and "Drug" is a testament to that. Speaking with Refinery29, Herzig says it's about the addiction of new love. "We never really took ourselves too seriously," she says reflecting on the creation process with Cason Cooley and Butterfly Boucher. "I'm really looking forward to playing this one live — [it's] one of my favorites off the new album." Katie, we couldn't agree more.
