Kitten has released a new single entitled “Like A Stranger,” off of their upcoming EP of the same name. The song has a very Madonna-esque feel to it, making it retro in a way that is becoming popular yet again. The style of the song also follows that of another Kitten song, “Yesterday (What’s Love)”, released earlier this year. Both tracks have a distinct electronic/techno beat that provides a captivating undertone. However, the vocals slow the songs down on a surface level, thus affecting the overall mood of the song. For true Kitten fans, the style is familiar and a key reason to enjoy the band. For a new listener, the conflicting style might take some getting used to. Either way, “Like A Stranger” is worth a listen, if only to mix up your latest playlist.
Listen to “Like A Stranger” below and preorder their new EP here, due out on August 27th.
