Kitten hit up the UK

The Truth: Chloe Chaidez’s first ever band was called Wild Youth, who played raucous cover versions. So far, so unremarkable. Except that Chloe formed Wild Youth when she was ten, supported the likes of Conor Oberst, Midlake and Band Of Horses, and split the group up at the ripe old age of thirteen. Now Chloe Chaidez is the centrifugal force in LA’s newest underground indie-pop storm troopers KITTEN. When her second combo stalked the stages of SXSW and CMJ last year she was already looking at becoming a rock’n’roll veteran at the age of fifteen. We’ve heard of getting your teenage kicks, but surely this is ridiculous?

The ‘Sunday School’ EP is KITTEN’s debut UK release. It features five smouldering songs with alluring nods to past dirty deeds done good, careering from sultry pop which references The Boss and nods towards Karen O (‘Kill The Light’), to the power popping Nena-chopping New Wave shapes of ‘Chinatown’ which is buoyantly Kim Wilde at heart. In short, the EP is a sassy blend of art rock sensibilities, gently gothic traumas and sunny side-up Billy Idolising commercial tricks. In shorter, within 37 seconds Chaivez’s age has become irrelevant.

Next comes a return trip to Austin in the spring, after which KITTEN will be heading to the UK for live shows around the ‘Sunday School’ EP’s release. Lock up your daughters! Oh, hang on a minute…
