Silence Kit entered the studio with Jesse Gander (Japandroids, White Lung, Pack AD) at Rain City Recorders in East Vancouver in October 2017. Here, the band recorded five tracks over just three days. The result of this work is Kitty Kitty, an explosive, energetic five track EP mastered by Noah Mintz (Broken Social Scene, The Constantines, Hey Rosetta!). Catchy hooks, screams and noise amidst melodic guitar and raw power champion their ethos. Their sound has been characterized as everything from alt-rock to post punk, a staple made readily apparent by their intimate and explosive live performances that always deliver on energy and passion.
Lady Lark is a Minneapolis artist reviving a sound that echoes 20 years of pop, soul and funk music. City Pages named her 2018’s Best R&B Artist and 89.3, The Current has called her, “a pop/soul star to be”. Lady Lark is taking her infectious hooks and danceable beats to a venue near you. If you love to dance, Lark Lark will make your body move!
Rapper Zed Kenzo has been turning heads and building buzz with her new single, “Go Psycho”, which dropped in January. Dubbed one of Milwaukee’s best rappers by Shepherd Express, the alum of Radio Milwaukee’s music accelerator program, Backline, hit Austin for a coveted SXSW showcase spot in March.
