Fresh indie tunes with catchy pop hooks are the signature style of emerging Brisbane artist, Katanak.
Dylan Cattanach is the face and creator of Katanak and has been writing, composing and performing his music for the past six years, first with his former band and now currently as a solo artist.
Dylan was the song writer, lead singer and rhythm guitarist for KB Theory in 2018 when their song, “Lights of Tokyo” reached number 37 on Australian radio 4ZZZ’s hot 100.
2019 started in a big way and saw him support Pete Murray on his "Summer Sessions tour 2019".

This collaboration has produced his next single ‘Astronomy’ releasing 5th February 2020 which charts the euphoric highs of meeting the person you have a connection with.
Katanak has been announced as one of 24 Brisbane artists involved in the QUBE Effect, a mentoring program run by Brisbane City Council which includes performing during Youth Week.

Inspired by The 1975, Circa Waves and Two Door Cinema Club, Katanak is building a reputation for creating indie pop songs which gets the crowd on their feet and moving to the groove.
