I first heard Kitty Daisy and Lewis on National Public Radio. Not necessarily the place you expect to find new music, but I have an open mind. I listened to the interview, and thought these guys sound pretty cool. Then they played some of their music, and I became a fan.
The band consists of three siblings named Kitty Daisy and Lewis. The band plays what might be classified as rockabilly music, but that isn’t exactly a good label for their music either. They stick with simple fun bass, guitar, and drum music. Sometimes they add a little piano to the mix. But the music is classic rock and roll.
With songs like Don’t Make a Fool Out of Me, the band uses the simple rhythms and lyrics that talk about how someone has broken vows and promises. It has a real bluesy feel to it. You know those songs you listen to when someone has stomped on your heart, and you’ve decided enough is enough. And it’s time to tell them how you fell.
The band also does a great cover of Going Up The Country. They definitely add their unique touch, and it took me a little while to figure out why the song sounded so familiar. It’s a fun song to listen to.
Since the band is from the UK, most of their shows are in Europe, but I hope that at some point in time they will tour the US again so I can hear them play live. I’m sure it will be a fun show.
