At the Party with My Brown Friends is a mood to always aspire to. Born and raised on the Swinomish Reservation in Skagit County, Katherine Paul (who prefers to go by KP) cut her teeth in the DIY indie music scene of Anacortes, and that sensibility shows up her music. Her solo folk adjacent project, Black Belt Eagle Scout, balances the dark and the light, the present and the just barely there, a space where KP can explore her identity as a queer indigenous feminist. Her sophomore album, At the Party with My Brown Friends, explores queer desire and friendship over moody, introspective guitar and confessional, vulnerable lyrics.
