KT Tunstall sits down with The Knockturnal to share more about her new short film, reclaiming pink, and the kind of music that makes kids go wild.
It’s September 2007. You are abroad in Brighton, England, with your U2 iPod in tow. The tunes of KT Tunstall’s new album Drastic Fantastic saturate your eardrums along with the rain (it is England after all).
Fast forward to Friday, January 15th, 2021. Drastic Fantastic has been re-released to the musical eco-sphere. There’s no U2 iPod this time, but it is in fact still alive. On this same day, The Knockturnal had the opportunity to chat with singer-songwriter KT Tunstall about her new short film GUTTERPUNKS.
KT contributes to GUTTERPUNKS through multiple creative roles. She served as an executive producer, contributed original music (a self-described “punked-up” tune), and acted in the project. This Swiss army knife set of short film skills helps bring a story about the complexities, realities, and difficulties of charging into the world as an independent female (and a punk) to its glittering and pink life.
GUTTERPUNKS is also unique in that it partnered with make-up brand PopBeauty to celebrate self-expression and creative exploration.
