‘That’s one cool chick” said Iggy Pop admiringly of Kitten’s Chloe Chaidez while the two danced together onstage to the electrifying roar of The Stooges. Many others have shared similar sentiments…
In 2010, while still unsigned, SPIN named 15 year old Chaidez and Kitten the “best new discovery” of SXSW and in 2013 Rolling Stone proclaimed Chaidez a "top ten artist to watch" with Time magazine anticipating Kitten's debut as one of the "top 11 albums to look forward to in 2013."
In 2014, after releasing a trio of highly acclaimed EP’s (Sunday School, Cut It Out and Like A Stranger), Kitten released their self titled debut full length album, produced by co writer Chad Anderson with Gavin Mackillop, which Rolling Stone hailed as a “triumph” promptly placing it in the “top 20 pop albums of 2014.”
Most recently, Kitten’s 2016 EP “Heaven Or Somewhere In Between” was included in Rolling Stones “The Best Of 2016 So Far”.
Their album’s showcase a distinctive and electrifying sound all it’s own, joining irresistible melodies and provocative lyrics with the hard edge of late 70’s post punk the driving pulse of 80’s new wave and the sweeping ambience of 90’s shoegaze.
The breadth of musical influence wasn’t an accident. A lifelong music obsessive, Chaidez learned to play bass at age ten, eventually picking up guitar and drums as well. Chaidez formed her first band that same year and was quickly opening for indie heavyweights like Midlake and Conor Oberst.
At 14, influenced by everyone from Velvet Underground, Sigur Ros and Madonna, Chaidez began throwing herself into songwriting, working intensely with her co-writer and musical partner Chad Anderson on honing her craft and then began to expand her musical palette with the discovery of electronic programming as a means of creative expression.
Chaidez says, “I found it really satisfying. Programming music in Ableton was something that I could just do in my bedroom alone or with my brother and it felt like we were creating our own world of sounds and textures.”
The Midnight Club
Originating from Denver in late 2015, high school students Owen Coleman, Harry Springer, Miles Bragg, and Sean McCarthy formed the Alt-Pop-Rock band - The Midnight Club.
Influenced by their heroes of 1970s rock'n'roll, The Midnight Clubflaunt powerful melodic lead vocals, soaring guitars,
and an edgy retro style tailored for the 21st century. Early on, The Midnight Club quickly grabbed their hometown's ears bywinning the coveted opening slot for Denver's Alternative Rock Radio station, KTCL93.3's Big Gig 2016. Additionally, the band went on to headline packages with fellow Denver bands at The MOVIULUB SCREAM Gothic Theater, Marquis Theater, Summit Music Hall, and most recently Sold Out their headline shows at the popular clubs, Lost Lake Lounge and Larimer Lounge.
Behind their local success, the band took to the studio to write and record their debut single "Close Your Eyes" mixed by Mark Needham (The Killers, Imagine Dragons, Walk
"Scream" The Moon), which debuted at #6 on the Alterative Specialty Radio chart (FMOB Sub FCC Clean Modern)! The Midnight Club are gearing up to release their second single, "Scream," on Available March 9, 2018 March 9th, which was recorded and produced in Los Angeles with former Rooney member, Taylor Locke (Cullen Omori, Geographer, Bloodboy).
