The Lounge Kittens aren’t your typical covers band. The trio from Southampton formed while listening to the Vengaboys in a club and have performed at Sonisphere, Glastonbury, Download, Boardmasters and more.
As you might have suspected from that list of festivals, their repertoire isn’t your usual nan-pleasing wedding fare. No, these ladies take on rock and metal hits, and give them a little lounge twist. So far, they’ve tackled the likes of Andrew WK‘s ‘Party Hard’, Slipknot‘s ‘Duality’ and Limp Bizkit‘s ‘Rollin”, amongst others. The latter even got the attention of Fred Durst and led to the three-piece opening the band’s set at Sonisphere in 2014.
Now, The Lounge Kittens are heading to NME HQ later this month to record a new cover and you get to have your say on what it will be. Do you want them to give Arctic Monkeys‘ ‘Fluorescent Adolescent’ the lounge treatment? Or maybe you’d like to know what Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ ‘Suck My Kiss’ sounds like stripped of Anthony Kiedis?
