Agent K(ahunasan) Infectious Sugary mostly dreampop confections served up by crystal clear voiced Chanteuse Kate Tucker.
Reminiscent of some of the best 80's & 90's female indie pop/rock of MTV and VH1 days.
"Hangover" will hook you from the get go.
"Blue Hotel" is a should be old fashioned AM Pop Radio Hit.
The Sons of Sweden provide excellent musical backing & make this a true band effort.
Bangles, Cranberries, Lush, Tanya Donelly led Breeders, and of course the Cardigans are familiar sonic reference points Favorite track: Blue Hotel.

Track Name: Hangover
HANGOVER

My heart’s on a string
Voices carry are you listening
I was looking for a whole nother thing

Love bite bee sting
Poison the vein
You’re parading your loss
Living your heartbreak in style
Forsake your plans all the while
Car crash earthquake
Shake it all down

So you want me
And you want to taste some blood
And you need me
And you need me like a drug
And you feel me
Like a hangover like a hangover
Are you with me
Well you gotta show some love

I heard your answering bell
Ringing out like you got something to sell
I bought your story you know I’ll never tell
Love bite bee sting
Poison the well

I gave it a shot
The gun was smoking
And the barrel was hot
You think I’m joking well I’m sorry I’m not
Catch or get caught
Is that all you got

So you want me
And you want to taste some blood
And you need me
And you need me like a drug
And you feel me
Like a hangover like a hangover
Are you with me
Well you gotta show some love
Yeah you gotta show some love
Track Name: Give Up the Ghost
GIVE UP THE GHOST

Fade in the moonlight
Waiting for summer to shift
In the sands
We were sinking
Holding each other tight

Winter came last night
Filling our lungs
With a cold wind
Won’t break our branches
When we are bathed in light

And you breathe out breathe out
Hang in the air
Breathe out breathe out

One more time
If you can’t get free
In your mind
And you can’t believe
It’s all right
You can leave it up to me
One more time
I won’t give up the ghost

I won’t deny it
My heart’s open wide
My lips they are sealed
And my hands they are tied
If you cannot save me
At least I know you tried

Heartbreak or failure
Who could be blamed
But the one who created
All that we love and
All that we leave behind

And you breathe out breathe out
Hang in the air
Breathe out breathe out

One more time
If you can’t get free
In your mind
And you can’t believe
It’s all right
You can leave it up to me
One more time
I won’t give up the ghost

Breathe out breathe out
Hang in the air
Breathe out breathe out

One last time
Track Name: Looking Around
LOOKING AROUND

So you say you wanna mainline
But I can feel your beating heart in mine

So you’re heavy on the breakdown
It’s no Roman Holiday this time
But I can feel your beating heart
Beating in mine

You were always looking around
I was always looking around
Why we always looking around
When love is on the inside

Wait go easy on the ending
There’s a storm that opens up the sky

Love it takes a lot of mending
When there’s a heavy low for every high
Maybe if I take you low
I’ll take you real high

You were always looking around
I was always looking around
Why we always looking around
When love is on the inside

You were always looking around
So I was always looking around
Why we always looking around
When our love is on the inside

And when the lightning strikes you
Will you be ready to go

Cause it’ll get inside you
But you really wanted to know

Well you know I was always
Looking out for you
Track Name: Let Me Go
LET ME GO

Breathe it in
Hold my breath
I don’t have the heart
To live without it

It’s my fault
It’s your fault
If you don’t give a damn
Forget about it

I won’t call it bad
You know I wanted more than that
You know I gave it all I had
You just let it go like that
Find a fire to light
Go set your flares off in the night
I’ll be miles out of sight
Cause you just let me go like that

Don’t get involved
Problem solved
Leave it on the table
What’s the difference

I look at you
You look at me
But we can’t see the forest
For the distance
Oh the distance

I won’t call it bad
You know I wanted more than that
You know I gave it all I had
You just let it go like that
Find a fire to light
Go set your flares off in the night
I’ll be miles out of sight
Cause you just let me go like that

You go you go
You go on down
You dream you dream
You dream out loud
You eat your heart out
Everytime
Track Name: Big Idea
BIG IDEA

Oh what’s your big idea
Call me and tell me you’re missing me
Sounds like a master plan
Kill me or sleep with the enemy

Feels like another day
Could be the dawn of a century
I’ll stage a getaway
Call spades or diamonds for sympathy

I should have known
You were going crazy
Face first on the pavement
You should have known
I’m a born fatality

You and your coterie
Driving around like you own the street
If it were up to me
I might call in some medicine

I should have known
You were going crazy
Face first on the pavement
You should have known
I’m a born fatality

I should have known
I should have known
I should have known
Is there a way out of this

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

I’m full of funny words
I don’t remember the alphabet
There was this song I heard
It takes so little to break me

I should have known
I should have known
I should have known
Is there a way out of this
Track Name: Wide Open Plain
WIDE OPEN PLAIN

Given what you got
You don’t know till it’s gone
Don’t know who you love
Till it’s all undone
Love is like a freight train
Moving through the dark
Love is like a train
Rolling over me

Tell it to me lightly
Give it to me straight
You let it go too far
And now it’s too late
Holy as desire
Holy as a ring
Betting on Orion
Won’t save anything

Given what you want
You don’t want it anymore
Don’t know what you need
Till it’s walking out the door
You were counting stars
Throwing bottles from the shore
I saw a wide open plain

I will find Orion
A million miles away
Speeding in a car
On the interstate
I could use a hunter
He could use a war
You can throw your stars
On the ocean floor

Given what you want
You don’t want it anymore
Don’t know what you need
Till it’s walking out the door
You were counting stars
Throwing bottles from the shore
I saw a wide open plain
Track Name: Best Friends' Love
BEST FRIENDS’ LOVE

Love you really had your way with me
Love you really got away from me
You really got away

Home is that really where I want to be
Home is that somebody’s fantasy

I won’t take you out
Or take you down
Until you prove to me
What a best friends’ love could really be

Faith lean into your old belief
Faith feel it like a slow relief
Like a slow relief

Hope is something that’ll get you high
Hope I worry about your alibi

I won’t take you out
Or take you down
Until you prove to me
What a best friends’ love could really be
You can break my bones
But not my heart
It’s already been bought
I sold it for a best friends’ love

I’ll forgive you
But I won’t forget
All the words you wasted on me

And if I look back
Well I won’t regret
Cause at least I loved somebody

I’m not gonna tell you
What is wrong or what is right
I’m not gonna tell you
That I’m missing you tonight

Yeah I’m missing you tonight
Yeah I’m missing you
Track Name: Blue Hotel
BLUE HOTEL

Now the king has gone
Left his only son
To the throne and to the gun

Did you lose your nerve
Round a hairpin curve
If you want me I will run

I was falling for show and tell
Heartbreak in a blue hotel
You were calling I know you well
Heartbreak in a blue hotel

We were so in love
We thought nothing of
How we’d live to see the day

We would cut the wire
Watch it all catch fire
If you want me I will run away
Are you gonna stop me

I was falling for show and tell
Heartbreak in a blue hotel
You were calling I know you well
Heartbreak in a blue hotel

Are you gonna stop me now
Are you gonna stop me now
Are you gonna stop me now

I was falling for show and tell
Heartbreak in a blue hotel
You were calling I know you well
Heartbreak in a blue hotel
Heartbreak in a blue hotel
Heartbreak and no one to tell
Track Name: The State I'm In
THE STATE I’M IN

There’s nothing going right
In the neighborhood
I’m hanging up my heart
Just to call it good
You were always right
When you said you could
Pull me on through like I knew you would

We go inside out
We go outside in

Did I sleep like iron
In your diamond mind
Did I tear the veil
Did I cross the line
I would storm the heavens
Looking for a sign
I would leave it all leave it all behind

To go inside out
Outside in
Till I feel alive
In the state I’m in

Late on a Friday
You know I’m looking out for you
You were the one way
I could come back new

Summer’s on the wind
Round the very bend
We could chase it down
To the bitter end
Would you come with me
Would you drink my cup
If you take my hand would I give it up

Late on a Friday
You know I’m looking out for you
You were the one way
I could come back new

There’s nothing going right
In the neighborhood
The sound of your voice
It would do me good
Track Name: Island of the Misfit
ISLAND OF THE MISFIT

Whatever you want you got it
Whatever you want you need you don’t
Who’s gonna take you home
When you’re all alone

Breaking my heart on purpose
Flowers of cellophane
Swimming beneath the surface
In steady rain

God only knows
Just exactly where we went wrong in this
I don’t suppose
You could tell me where I belong in this
And I confess
Everything I wanted but could not get
Under duress
Swimming from the island of the misfit

Whatever you want you got it
Whatever you need you don’t
Tearing your heart to pieces
Won’t get you off

Always a streetlight dancer
Living your love in the dark
I’d give you any answer
For one last spark

God only knows
Just exactly where we went wrong in this
I don’t suppose
You could tell me where I belong in this
And I confess
Everything I wanted but could not get
Under duress
Swimming from the island of the misfit

And you don’t know
What you won’t know
And what hurts to hear
And you won’t know
What you will not hear

God only knows
Just exactly where we went wrong in this
I don’t suppose
You could tell me where I belong in this
And I confess
Everything I wanted but could not get
Under duress
Swimming from the island of the misfit
