Catching up with some iconic singers and bands of the 1980s brings us to the legendary Katrina and the Waves. This British-American rock band rose to fame in the mid-1980s with their infectious pop-rock sound and catchy tunes.

Formed in 1981, Katrina and the Waves first gained attention with their self-titled debut album in 1985. The band’s breakthrough came with the release of their hit single “Walking on Sunshine” in 1985, which became an instant classic and reached the top 10 on the UK record charts.

The following year, in 1986, Katrina and the Waves achieved even greater success with their song “Sun Street”, which reached number 4 on the UK singles chart. Their music was a staple on the iconic pirate radio station LASER558, further solidifying their popularity in the UK music scene.

Fast forward to today, and Katrina is still going strong. She continues to tour and perform at various music festivals and events around the world. In recent years, she has released new music and even collaborated with other artists, showcasing her enduring talent and staying power in the music industry.

Their timeless hits from the 1980s still resonate with fans old and new, proving that good music truly stands the test of time. So next time you hear “Walking on Sunshine” or “Sun Street” playing on the radio, take a moment to appreciate the musical legacy of Katrina and the Waves and their impact on 1980s pop culture.
