‘Mouthwash’ is the second single to come from Kate Nash’s barnstorming #1 debut album ‘Made of Bricks’ and follow-up to the massive single ‘Foundations’
As minty fresh as the title implies, ‘Mouthwash’ is a classic example of Kate Nash’s prowess as a pop songwriter par excellence – proving that pop music doesn’t have to be written by jaded professionals for styled muppets.
Despite the seemingly ordinary nature of this song’s lyrics, Kate says it was written to underline the fact that despite an outwardly ordinary life people, especially young people, are individuals.
In typical Kate fashion, it is by focussing on the little things – bathroom sink dramas – that a bigger picture manifests itself.
“Mouthwash’ is,” says Kate, “A bit of a protest song that comes from the confusion of youth. I guess it’s about not quite being there yet. About not feeling totally sure where you are going but still feeling the need to defend all the things that make you into who you are. We all have routines and things in common, that still somehow manage to be totally unique and personal to you.”
