Videos: Kate Nash Performs "Life In Pink" and Reveals How Acting Has Made Her a Better Artist

"There's something about music and the music world that puts out this really unhealthy, negative idea that you have to be tortured and it's all just feeling right now how kind of fucked up you are and that is what gives you the best performance—your emotional turmoil," says Kate Nash. "And that's absolute bollocks."

The British pop singer-songwriter just released Yesterday Was Forever in March, five years after her previous LP. While she continued to perform live and released an EP in 2017, Nash also continued her acting career in those intervening years. After starring in 2012's Greetings From Tim Buckley, she took roles in other films like Powder Room and Syrup, as well as the Netlfix series GLOW.

In the video above, Nash shares how the discipline and professionalism of acting allowed her to become a better musical heart and to perform in healthier mindsets. "It's really nice to know that there's another string in my bow where I can go like, 'This doesn't have to kill me and ruin my life. I don't have to be emotionally tortured. I can work and be on stage and perform, and then I can come offstage and put that away."

After sitting down with Reverb and performing "Hate You," Nash then played the lead single, "Life In Pink," from her new album. In line with her earlier discussion, the song revolves around themes of mental health and overcoming negative outlooks. Be sure to check out both videos above. Visit Kate Nash's website here.
