Meet the UK-based guitar rock band, Viva Brother. Their sound is a mixture of Oasis and Blur, but the band is also influenced by The Smiths and The Rolling Stones. They’re signed to A&M/Octone Records, also home to Maroon 5, and released their full-length debut, FAMOUS FIRST WORDS last August. Watch their video for “Darling Buds of May” above and if you like what you hear be sure to check out videos from their tour with UK indie-rockers, The Wombats here.
Lead singer and songwriter is sixteen year old indie starlet Chloe Chaidez. Though from afar Kitten may be seen as the next Paramore, the band is actually being compared to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. From now until the fall, Kitten will tour with UK-grit pop group Viva Brother, and rocking across the country with Electric Six. Kitten has shared the stage with Young the Giant, Art Brut, The Postelles and Funeral Party, and has rocked both CMJ and SXSW festivals. Watch the video for their single, “Chinatown” above.
