Christina
Kitten
Cut It Out EP
2012

At first, I mistook Kitten's "Christina" for another cover of "Bizarre Love Triangle", but was pleasantly surprised when, after the first two lines, the lyrics took an original turn.  It is, instead, perhaps the most achingly beautiful song ever written about Christina Ricci (haha, no, really). 

This song has a lullaby lull; it puts me into a bit of a trance.  Maybe it is the ethereal atmospherics or Chloe Chaidez's sweet-but-gravelly voice (she's freaking seventeen years old!) or the crush-on-a-girl undertones and lyrics like: "I think the picture's Paris, France/You were wearing leather and a sideways glance/I like the way you're stretching out that leather."

I like that Kitten is clearly influenced by 80s New Wave without being an all-out carbon copy of anything specific.  They are the first band I've actually been excited about in a while.  I feel like I could gush so much more about this song, but I kind of just want you to listen to it!
