Sleepy Kitty Music
“Bright colorful and relatively analog, with leanings toward The Ramones or ’60s girl groups if Brian Eno had taken up the production. Good fun!” – NPR
“Grimy meets shiny in Sleepy Kitty’s music. The duo’s chugging drums and crunchy guitars are sweetened by catchy melodies and vocal harmonies that summon memories of 1960s-era girl groups.”
– Boston Globe
Big Bliss (NYC)
“Keep Near is a glistening, energetic continuation of what Robert Smith so eloquently popularized in the late 1970s. It is modern yet nostalgic, a wonderful example of post-punk that will have you excited about the genre again” -Annalise Domenighini, NOISEY
“Their music jets along on classic-sounding post-punk melodies, with guitars usually chiming rather than crunching. But, like all good post-punk, there’s a bit of darkness lurking in the corners.” -Jon Schaefer, SOUNDCHECK
Fruit & Flowers (NYC)
Formed in the summer of 2015, Fruit & Flowers creates kinetic and melodic rock and roll with a strong personality.

Chaotic and captivating, dynamic and driving; Fruit & Flowers’ debut EP, Drug Tax, is planned for release in 2017.
