Album: Sunday School
The song “Chinatown” by the LA based band Kitten is an infections, spastic dance track that you can’t help but finding yourself moving to. The sound of the band is a blend of the 80’s synth type female fronted rock, totally on par with bands from back in the day like Blondie or Missing Persons. “Chinatown” grabs you at first with the opening few notes and then never seems to let go, providing catchy hooks, excellent guitar riffs and amazing vocals. And with the sheer charisma, charm, talent you hear from this band you would never know they are so young and just starting out. They are very young actually, in fact two members are barely 21 and the animated pixie like lead singer Chloe Chaidez is just 16 years old, but her talent is far beyond her years.
Currently Kitten is coming off of tour as the opening act for the Electric Six and the next thing you can find from them is an appearance on a Smith’s tribute album. The band is contributing their version of the classic song, “Panic.” That disc drops on December 13, but the band will begin streaming the song on their website on November 25th.
