Dragonette – “Live In This City” [New Single]


Canadian electro-pop band Dragonette has released yet another catchy, addictive and banging new track called “Live In This City” from their upcoming new album Bodyparts.

The infectious rock tinged “Live In This City” was written and recorded in London but lead singer Martina Sorbara says:

“Live In This City” was “born out of a drunken haze at the stampede in Calgary”

The “Calgary Stampede” is a huge rodeo and festival in Canada.

Dragonette‘s Bodyparts arrives September 25th. “Live in This City” is available now in iTunes.

KITTEN – “Japanese Eyes” and “Cut It Out – EP”


Introducing LA-based synth-pop group KITTEN fronted by the extraordinary CHLOE CHAIDEZ!  The band formed by Chaidez, Andy Miller and Chris Vogel have been building a well deserved buzz due to their contagious synth-pop-rock sound and electrifying live shows.

On their new Cut It Out – EP (out now) The band showcases a sonically softer side with two gorgeous, dreamy and sensual electronic numbers that could be best described as Karen O meets Chromatics meets Charli XCX.

The video for the EP’s titled track was loosely inspired by early John Hugh’s flicks and was shot primarily in alleys and parts of LA underground hot spot The Smell. The imagery of the video and characters captures the essence of nightlife and longing of the track to perfection. The midnight synth-pop b-side of the EP, Sugar, has an equal sound appeal but with a much simpler video— just a simple slow moving image of a girl smoking a cigarette(?).

The band recently debuted a killer, danceable, nu-wave, sythn-pop-rock anthem called Japanese Eyes that simply blew my mind. The melodic guitar riff, synth work, along with Chaidez‘ feisty vocals will make anyone an instant fan of this electric and exciting new band.

Japanese Eyes and the Cut It Out – EP  are now available via iTunes.

Kitten is currently on tour and will be appearing at the Mercury Lounge in NYC tonight (7/27)! Check HERE for more details.
