Alt-harmony group The Lounge Kittens have caused ructions in the rock world with their briliant covers of some of the best tracks around. As we impatiently await the release of debut album Sequins & C-Bombs (it’s out in September so we ONLY have another three months to wait…. Someone get us a time machine please? Thanks!), the lovely ladies have given us a treat with their tongue-in-cheek version of AC/DC‘s Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap. The video sees the trio return to some office jobs as hitmen with a difference.
Blue kitten Timia says; “The album doesn’t come out till September and frankly, we’re bored of keeping it all a secret. So we thought right, time to make some more videos – it’s been AGES.”
Pink kitten Zan adds; “Whilst there’s some debate raging about which songs to release from the album and what would make a good single and blah, blah we decided we didn’t have enough to do so set ourselves the challenge of releasing a brand new video every month until the end of the year.
Red kitten Jen follows; “The videos are what the fans want. It’s what we’re best known for and they’re really fun to make! For example, this one we filmed over two night shoots, after working all day. But what’s more fun than hunting people through the streets of London armed with fistfuls of glitter!?!”
The trio are set to release the videos on the 16th of each month, so for the first one, why AC/DC? Well Jen will tell you; “We’ve wanted to do an AC/DC track for ages, the only question was WHICH ONE? With so many bangers to choose from, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap was the shy one hiding round the corner, just to the side of some of the more well-known hits squeaking ‘pick me, pick me’ and it totally works as a Kitten track.”
