If you’re in Chicago, or wherever they are, see this band. Solid and poetic rock music. Original work that cuts across the same lines as Patti Smith and X. A sense of roots, but contemporary and not derivative. Mere radio rock or rehashed pop music-not at all. These are the core elements of universal creation: guitar, bass, piano, drums, and vocals. Kitty Devine twists, bends, breaks past models in favor of passionate and true passages of bread-basket rock that has real edge, unequivocal musical sense, and opens veins as needed. Imaginative, fun, and precise. Stories worth telling. Mature themes for a discriminating audience. A sense of discovery and fire, but never pretentious. The real thing…Kitty Devine.
