Rainbow Kitten Surprise
I am so proud to say that one of my new favorite bands was founded in my hometown! Rainbow Kitten Surprise is an indie pop/rock band that fills its sounds with deep guitar riffs and catchy beats. Lead singer Samuel Melo keeps it rich and soulful, characteristic of artists like Matt Corby.
Seven, RBK's EP, covers a spectrum of sounds and emotions. The track offered above (my personal fave) possesses darker, more thought-provoking qualities; however, RBK walks into the light with poppy pieces like "Mr. Redundant".
RBK's newest album has moved toward an indie-folk sound with simple, base drum beats and unitary vocals. "Mary", their title track, is a sweet acoustic tune and "That's My Shit" is like a folkified version of Gwen Stefani's "Hollaback Girl" (but not actually). Point being, there's something for everyone.
You should give them a listen, like their Facebook page, and go to one of their shows!
