Time for new tights?


Kitten is currently opening for Young the Giant’s national tour. This track, from their Sunday School EP, was recorded at Chelsea’s in Baton Rouge last Wednesday. I don’t know terribly much about them, except they’re from Los Angeles (any dirt, Kevin?). They are pleasantly high-energy pop, quite enjoyably reminiscent of Baton Rouge’s own We Landed on the Moon. Their pint-size vocalist, apparently an indie-rock prodigy, channels a spastic Karen O and steals the show a bit with her antics — climbing all over the band’s gear, shaking her head violently, literally swinging from the rafters.

(I really do love the fan’s comment at the very beginning of this track in response to the singer’s low-key “…and…we love Louisiana.”)

  1. Like yourself, I know virtually nothing about them except they held down a weekly residency at one of the prominent LA indie clubs a couple of months ago. Digging the track and the “She sounds so sincere when she said that” hahaha.
