Kitty, Daisy and Lewis - Smoking In Heaven

New album from Kitty, Daisy & Lewis entitled “Smoking In Heaven" will be released October 25th and is a very cool collection of ska, classic R&B, blues and rock ‘n’ roll.
Set for an October 25th release on Verve Forecast / DH Records, “Smoking In Heaven” is not only an exciting, self-penned studio album of original material that delves in and out of genres and displays a penchant for multiple styles and tempos, it represents Kitty, 18, Daisy, 22, and 20-year-old Lewis’s evolution from talented young enthusiasts to bona fide musicians. As with all of the tracks on their critically acclaimed debut, “Smoking In Heaven” was produced and recorded by brother Lewis (who was cutting 78rpm discs at the age of 12) and his father Graeme Durham in their vintage home studio (modeled after the studio at Sun Records) using ribbon microphones and analogue tape formats. Here's a fun inside look at the multi-instrumental trio: ** At the three minute mark, you get an idea of their recording process. “Smoking In Heaven” has been catching the attention of many worldwide for what The UK Times raves “is infused with so much energy, freshness and standard teenage moaning ... these songs take on the style and language of classic R&B, blues and rock ‘n’ roll tunes from New Orleans, Memphis and Chicago” with a genuine authenticity. Art Rocker goes on to say “taking their cue from the summery ska of The Skatalites with a twist of Etta James, this North London trio really stand out from the crowd” and new song I’m So Sorry “is the ultimate beer garden song; uplifting, crisp and dippy.” Watch the I’m So Sorry video here: Since their formation, the trio has mesmerized fans and critics with their multi-instrumental capabilities and frenzied live shows - which took place anywhere from pubs to amphitheatres (KDL were Coldplay’s main support on their 2009 US Summer tour.) From ska-tinged rock ‘n’ roll crafted upon seductive trumpet solos, luau guitar riffs and exotic vocals, to boldly pulsating rhythms that connote ‘60s soul and blues, Kitty, Daisy & Lewis have created an album that is rooted in the past but entirely original.
