Growing up in the concrete slabs of the Gold Coast, you can't always get what you want. It wasn't until Kate Cooper moved up north to Brisbane that she was truly able to get some degree of satisfaction. A mid-2000s stint at the helm of Iron On turned her into one of the country's cult indie darlings, which blossomed to a global scale with her next band, An Horse. Things were very very good for awhile there, but things also got very very real. Cooper doesn't hold anything back in discussing the highs and lows of her career at the tail-end of a national An Horse tour back in late February.
