NEW SIGNING: SLEEPY KITTY
Maximal Music Sync is super psyched to welcome St. Louis-based indie rockers Sleepy Kitty to our roster!
With Paige Brubeck on vocals/guitar and Evan Sult (former Bound Stems and Harvey Danger) on drums/tapes, Sleepy Kitty makes what NYLON magazine describes as “rainbow-tinged indie pop." Distorted guitar layers and hooky vocals garner comparisons to Courtney Barnett and the Breeders, while Brooklyn Vegan describes them as “a grungier, more layered Best Coast.” The duo's garagey drums, engrossing melodies and layered harmonies create a sound derived as much from the Velvet Underground as from Gershwin. Both musicians are also designers and screenprinters, and the influence of Warhol and Rauschenberg doesn’t stop in their visual art – Sleepy Kitty's songs are often spiked with shards of French 60s yé-yé, jazz standards, and even deconstructed Beatles songs, making both their live sets and recordings a surprising audio pop-art collage.
