This week’s Band of the week is Los Angeles based all-girl band Hear Kitty Kitty. I was initially tempted to kick off the write-up with oh so cute references to cats as perhaps they are “clawing their way through the rock and roll jungle” or that “their purr is as seductive as their looks” but honestly, I don’t write like that. What I do know about Hear Kitty Kitty is that they rock.
Comprising of Nikita Meow on vocals and rhythm guitar, Laura V on lead guitar, vox and harmonica, Alison Minx on keyboards and Niki on drums, these girls are able to shift from melodic power pop punk to hard edged rock and roll with ease. And they do it with style.
Currently coming off a couple of well received shows at SXSW and touring as much as they can around the country, Hear Kitty Kitty are the real deal. You almost could say they are “purrfect.” OK I couldn’t help it!
