Kaïa Kater – The Witch

Kaïa Kater, in collaboration with Aoife O’Donovan, releases “The Witch,” a song that elegantly weaves together strands of traditional folk, folk-pop, and progressive folk. This latest single from her forthcoming album Strange Medicine explores the deep-seated historical biases against women, using the metaphor of witchcraft to delve into themes of persecution and resilience.

Kater’s songwriting shines as she reflects on the ways women have been maligned as temptresses and witches, echoing the story of Tituba, the first woman accused of witchcraft in Salem. The track is not only a musical journey but also a narrative one, challenging listeners to engage with the lyrics for a richer experience.

“The Witch” is both beautiful and eerie, showcasing Kater’s ability to craft a soundscape that is as thought-provoking as it is listenable. Released under Free Dirt Records, the song is a testament to Kater’s unique approach to folk music, pushing boundaries and inviting listeners to reconsider traditional narratives.
