Nashville based soul rock band KB & THE IDYLLWILDE has released the official music video for their new single, “Madman.” Directed by front-woman Katie Burke, “Madman” is off of band’s upcoming album, I Just Wanna Love You, I Just Wanna Let You, due to release February 14, 2020.
“That pervasive waiting for the other shoe to drop feel was real strong in me at the time. The character in this song can’t accept love, they can’t see why anyone would stick around. They’re covered in their perception that people must be crazy to stand being around them. So in the end, the character accepts that both she and this person must both be nuts for it all to work. Good news, it works! Bad news… is there bad news? They’re nuts? Yes, nuts & happy—Fun fact, I wasn’t satisfied with my vocal performance in the studio so my producer Evan let me borrow a mic, and I tracked this in one take at home in my closet.” – Katie Burke
“Basically, this album encompasses all the ways we distort and experience love, or how I have at least…
Its a lot of addiction, egoic superiority/inferiority tendencies, and just plain codependent shit. Its a ‘love’ album about not knowing how to get it right, but celebrating all the ugly/beautiful ways we get it wrong.” – Katie Burke

KB & The Idyllwilde is a soul-rock band based in Nashville, TN, led by high octane vocalist Katie Burke. Her lyrical content deals in the offbeat and the ugly; the extremes of love, sex, death and pain.
Sonically, the band draws influence from artists ranging from Janis, Jimi, and Zeppelin to Beth Hart, DMB, and Jack White.
The name ‘Idyllwilde’ is derived from its two root words ‘idyll’ meaning ‘story’, and ‘wild’ meaning anything goes. The two words come together in acknowledgement of the band’s mission: to make music without the limits of genre or content, honoring the idea that ‘anything goes’. To KB, every compelling story is worth telling no matter what it looks or sounds like.
