Kat and the Hurricane

Indie Rock

Kat and the Hurricane is an award-winning genre- and gender-bending indie-pop/synth-rock trio from Madison, Wisconsin. Lead singer/guitarist Kat Farnsworth, keyboardist/vocalist Benjamin Rose, and drummer Alex Nelson deliver a unique blend of pop and haunting indie rock they affectionately refer to as "sad lesbian music." A trio of all-queer and all-trans musicians, they write predominantly about maneuvering through a world that does not find value in their experiences or community. Themes of struggling with mental health, navigating difficult relationships, and finding resilience in isolation are threaded through the band's discography. In 2021, their most recent album The Sorry EP was voted Rock Album of the Year at the Madison Area Music Association (MAMA) Awards and the title track "Sorry That I'm Like This" was voted Rock Song of the Year.
