Katie Malco released her debut album, Failures, via 6131 Records during lockdown in 2020. Failures is a coming-of-age record that, through soul-baring songwriting and gut-punch guitars, documents Malco’s adolescence; vignettes of a troubled teenage life in an abusive household, growing up and battling acute self-doubt.

Lead singles 'Creatures' and ‘Brooklyn’ received praise from key tastemakers including Stereogum, Paste Mag, Brooklyn Vegan, Consequence of Sound, CLASH + more, alongside support from BBC6 Music, BBC R1 & Radio X, while the album itself received rave reviews in DIY, Alt Press, Loud and Quiet, Dork Mag + more. NPR chose Katie as one of their 12 highlighted artists of SXSW 2021, including her in their famed Austin 100 list, and gave a rave review of Failures on their All Songs Considered podcast.

Armed with only an old telecaster that's seen better days (played upside down) and her storied lyrics, Katie has toured the UK and mainland Europe with the likes of Julien Baker, Alvvays, Jenny Lewis, Fenne Lily, Bob Mould (Hüsker Dü), Dawes, This is the Kit, SOAK, BC Camplight, Laura Stevenson, The Joy Formidable, + Peter Buck (REM), alongside an appearance at SXSW this year.

Katie finished off last year touring the UK with Laura Stevenson and joining her on a mostly sold out nationwide US tour in April 2023. She also completed a full co-headline US tour with SOAK in Feb this year. Katie is set to continue her busy year, with new music in the works, a recent tour in the UK and Europe with Alvvays and a run of UK shows with Hurray for the Riff Raff.
