Originally starting out life as singer Anna Meldrum's solo project, Kitty The Lion have since become a familiar yet respected sighting on Glasgow's musical horizon. We are delighted to announce we'll be releasing their debut album this autumn, which is currently being recorded and produced by Paul Savage at Chem19.
“The announcement over Christmas that Kitty the Lion were about to begin recording their long-awaited debut album was a lovely surprise. It might have taken them years to reach the studio properly, but from the sound of it they’ve wisely used that time to grow into one of the most confident-sounding bands in the city. Midnight Lion’s Stewart Brock has added keyboards and glorious three-part harmonies to the mix, giving Anna Meldrum’s wickedly poetic lyrics about chubby girls and cold fish boys the perfect pop setting they deserve.
The difference the keyboard makes is most obvious on new song, Dear Heart. There’s almost a dance-pop element to the choruses, while the verses come across like somebody’s been listening to the title track to Taylor Swift’s Red. 2013 deserves to be the Year of the Kitty.” - The Herald
