Black Belt Eagle Scout announces sophomore album with new single

Listen to “At the Party” now.

Black Belt Eagle Scout—aka Katherine Paul—has announced her sophomore LP, At the Party With My Brown Friends, with its semi-eponymous opening track, “At the Party.”

The song begins with a guitar line and soon fills with warm, booming drums and Paul’s wordless crooning. “How is it you’ve suffered through this kind of love? It puts you in a dark place, dark place,” she later questions with an air of removal, moving back to consider the song’s subject from a “nice place” of safety.

“Within my conscious self, there is always a sense of questioning the legitimacy of the world when you grow up on an Indian reservation. We are all at the party (the world), trying to navigate ourselves within a good or bad situation,” Paul said of the song in a statement.


At the Party With My Brown Friends, Paul also explained, “deals with love, desire and friendship.” The album arrives August 30 via Saddle Creek.
