KX93.5 PRESENTS: KITTEN & A LIVE BURLESQUE SHOW & CAITLIN LUCIA


Kitten are an L.A.-based group built upon 18-year-old frontwoman Chloe Chaidez and her amazing vocal pipes. Their debut album sounds like someone discovered master tapes from 1985 and, with a little remixing, released them in 2014. Chaidez is already an old hand at music, having been taking the stage since age 10. Executive producer Chad Anderson cowrote the material with Chaidez, formalizing her youthful instincts for music that wouldn’t feel out of place on the first few Madonna albums. “Like a Stranger,” “Sex Drive,” “I’ll Be Your Girl," and especially “Devotion” bounce aggressively with potential for the dancefloor and whatever constitutes radio in 2014. Previous EPs suggested a tougher guitar-based approach, but Chaidez sounds far more comfortable with these grooves. The album doesn’t falter, either. The album’s middle features—“G#” and “Why I Wait”—are two of its most-loved songs, while the end closes up with the passionate “Doubt,” the melodic “Kill the Light," and the low-key “Apples and Cigarettes,” where Chaidez gives another powerhouse vocal performance.
