Last year Kitten, the Los Angeles-based band fronted by 17-year-old Chloe Chaidez, released the debut EP Cut It Out that went viral faster than a video of an actual kitten wrestling a puppy. The six songs on the album were filled with electro-pop beats paired with Chaidez’s phenomenal vocals, which draw comparisons to both Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Florence Welch. While the lyrics verge on the angsty (she is a teenager after all) the choppy beats, catchy choruses and glam stadium-filling sound show that Kitten won’t be sitting at the kid’s table much longer. Their debut full-length release is due out on Elektra Records in mid-2013.
