Wild: Catherine McGrath’s musical revenge on a boyfriend’s texts to ex
IRISH newcomer Catherine McGrath has already been compared with Taylor Swift — and, like the US superstar, she bounces back from bad break-ups by writing about her exes.
‘There was this guy, we were seeing each other, he’d just broken up with his girlfriend,’ Catherine, 20, exclusively told GP. ‘I went to this Coldplay concert with him. It basically consisted of him holding my hand and making me feel like he liked me, but then he’d take out his phone and text this ex.’
Their split soon after inspired her new single, Wild. ‘I had to show him it, he was like, “Oh my God, my ex is going to hear this” — I don’t care what he thinks,’ said Catherine, who plays London’s Camden Assembly on Monday.
