Fronted by dynamic lead singer Chloe Chaidez, the Los Angeles-based four-piece Kitten make '80s postpunk-influenced dance-rock and synth pop. The daughter of former Thee Undertakers drummer Mike Chaidez, Chloe grew up listening to a mix of punk and '80s new wave bands like the Go-Go's, the Motels, and Siouxsie and the Banshees. A precocious adolescent, Chaidez formed her first group, the cover band Wild Youth, at age ten. Three years later, she had formed Kitten, and with producer/manager Chad Anderson began working on original material. In 2010, when Chaidez was only 15 years old, Kitten released the driving, guitar and synth-heavy EP Sunday School. That same year the band signed to Atlantic. Two years later, Kitten returned with their sophomore EP, Cut It Out. In 2014, Kitten delivered their eponymous full-length studio debut, which featured the singles "Like a Stranger," "G#," and "Doubt."
