Sleepy Kitty Plays NYC's Pianos Tonight
Since the release of their 2011 album Infinity City (Euclid Records), the gorgeous duo has garnered much attention from the media as Paste Magazine claims that "the duo plays up the '90s rock while still keeping it fresh" and has them on their list of "10 Missouri Bands You Should Listen to Now".
Having toured with the likes of Neon Trees, Dresden Dolls, Deerhoof, and Chuck Berry in their current hometown of St. Louis, this dynamic duo has garnered much attention in the media and has obtained musical accolades such as the River Front Times Award for Best Indie Band of 2013. Building on the band's successful momentum, Sleepy Kitty has released the first single, "Don't You Start" off their new album, Projection Room which is due out on August 27th with a slew of nationwide tour dates scheduled for this summer.
Sleepy Kitty began as an experimental sound project for a class when frontwoman Paige Brubeck was enrolled as an undergraduate at School of The Art Institute Chicago in 2007. Brubeck and Evan Sult (ex-Harvey Danger) began layering field recordings of the "L" and Wicker Park street poets with '60s style harmonies and crashing drums. Sult was playing drums in the math-rock indie-pop band Bound Stems at the time, and Brubeck was playing guitar in the girl group trio Stiletto Attack, but as the two bonded over Pavement and The Fall, they began writing their own post-punk, show-tune inflected songs and Sleepy Kitty went from side project to full on band.
