Kate Nash Writes And Records "Under-Estimate The Girl" In 24 Hours

Under-Estimate The Girl


Remember Kate Nash? The bubbly British singer/songwriter, who went to the same performing arts school as Adele and Amy Winehouse, is back with a song that is a complete departure from her signature quirky-girl sound. "Under-Estimate The Girl", which was written and recorded in a 24 hour time period, is trending all over the place because she's gone punk!



The public seems to be having a love-hate relationship with Nash's new track. Some are loving it because she took a risk, but others are criticizing it because they think the song sounds like it was written/recorded in 24 hours — messy, ear-splitting and poser-ish. Personally, we think that Kate's departure from cutesy songwriter to killer punk rock singer is pretty cool: we love her new look (redhead to two-toned blonde and black hair, plus the bindi!), her all-girl band can really rock, and her I-don't-care attitude is just what we needed in a world of manufactured pop songs.

Here are the lyrics to Kate Nash's new single "Under-Estimate The Girl":

Everybody play, play it so safe
No one wanna mess, mess with the rules


I feel like my head may explode
All my friends keep me alive though
I feel like myself I'm able
To get my, to get my

My release, my release
My release, yeah my release

I keep my cause close to my chest
My heart is alone, eyes undress
My heart! I wear my heart
On my sleeve

Underestimate me
Underestimate the girl
(Go on, underestimate her!)
Underestimate her

You keep pretending your happy
You keep reading your magazine
Your baby is f***in' me

You're the one you say you hate, you're
Every chance you had to waft it off
You probably made a big mistake

Everybody play, play it so safe
No one wanna mess, mess with the rules

No one wanna mess, mess with the rules
