BBC Three show us this trailer for Kate Nash: Underestimate The Girl. This documentary follows the British singer as she explores the highs and lows of the modern music industry.
The singer is known for her down-to-earth lyrics and authentic style. But behind the scenes, this doc reveals that all was not was it seemed. Kate was facing extreme pressure from her label and was discouraged from exploring out new musical genres and material. For Kate, she felt trapped in writing music that wasn’t really her. She also realised the entrenched sexism that was present all over the music industry and discovered how female musicians have a much harder time being heard.
The trailer shows us the effect that the pressure was having on Kate and the dark places that she went to. But we also get to see how she managed to assert her own authority and leave her label behind. Now, she’s able to pursue her own style and music, creating stuff that’s much more true to her. It’s a story that shows us how harsh music labels can be and how artists can be creatively trapped by their greedy masters.
