DATELINE RELEASES NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO 'DO IT RIGHT'

Dateline is the writing project of Katie Everingham, a musician and songwriter currently based in Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. Katie's occasionally makes the trip up to Auckland, to collaborate with her band of indie and alternative stalwarts, including Callum Devlin (Hans Pucket), Priya Sami (Bub) and Ruby Walsh (Lips).

The band's sound oozes nineties and noughties emotion by blending earnest indie pop harmonies with UK guitar rock. Songwriter Katie Everingham's lyricis embodies the confusion and insecurities that arise from getting older — relatable stuff!

Do It Right starts as a slow burn, before exploding with sharp drum fills, multi-layered harmonies, and lashings of good ol' fuzz.

"I wrote Do It Right after living in a new city for a while" says Everingham. "It was kind of a ‘Who am I? What am I doing here?’ moment that kicked this song off. I wanted the track to be moody and heavy, so it has lots of grungy distortion and open hi hats. It's fun to play live so when we were recording I wanted to capture the same energy."



"I love Sports Team, everything they come up with is so creative and unique, and I remember seeing Rita Salt's art and tattoos and being totally captivated by it." notes Everingham.

"When the suggestion was made to do a Sports Team/Rita Salt collab I was immediately in.I think the video captures the mood of the song perfectly. I think my favourite moment is the bit where the screen fills with bats! That would be a literal nightmare for me, so spooky."

Do It Right was made with assistance from NZ On Air Music, and is the latest single to be released from Dateline's upcoming debut album Dumb For My Age. Along with Do It Right, the album will feature previous singles, Such A Bitch, Dumb For My Age and If You Want It and is out August 27th via Sunreturn.
