Cat Zhang

Hey, I’m Cat! I’m a critic and jour­nal­ist in Brooklyn, New York. I’m cur­rently the Associate Editor at Pitchfork, and I’ve also con­tributed to the New Yorker, Washington Post, the Cut, Slate, NPR, Vice, and Real Life. I write about the in­ter­sec­tion of mu­sic, tech­nol­ogy, and youth cul­ture. I re­cently won a 2022 ASME Next Award for jour­nal­ists un­der 30, where judges praised my sophisticated and en­gag­ing style” and abil­ity to oc­cupy many roles, in­clud­ing historian, so­ci­ol­o­gist, an­a­lyst and mu­sic critic.”
