Female-fronted, synth-powered rock group Kitten are currently on the rise in the music scene with the release of their second EP Cut It Out. Coming from a music oriented family, lead singer Chloe Chaidez knew from an early age that she was going to be a musician. She formed her first band at the age of ten, and by the age of twelve she was playing shows and opening for indie artists. After a short rough patch of delving too much into the “rock ‘n roll lifestyle,” Chloe ditched the drugs and alcohol for a new start in LA where she discovered the kind of musician she truly is and teamed up with Lukas Frank, Bryan DeLeon, Waylon Rector, and Zach Bilson to form Kitten. The band, who pride themselves on their live performances, have since then opened for bands such as No Doubt, Paramore, and Young The Giant. This drew comparisons between the female-fronted bands, as it always does, but Kitten brushed off any comparisons with the release of their EP Cut It Out. Kitten’s music can only be described as vintage with a modern, electronic twist, which is what makes it a perfect mix of songs to blast in the car on a hot summer day. Look out for Kitten’s upcoming EP Like A Stranger on August 27th and check them out on facebook and their website.
