Today, Los Angeles riot grrrl-adjacent trio Lost Cat finally share their stellar 10-track self-titled debut LP, out today via Lolipop Records. Singles “L.O.S.T.”, “Bitch Fight”, and “Loser’s Beware”, established the group’s confidently spunky energy in the vein of girl groups of decades past, and the unveiling of their full-length project has made their affinity for fuzzed-out riffs, vocal harmonies, and unabashed shredding even more apparent.
“It all started with our love for music. We’ve always wanted to quit our jobs and be able to write and play full time,” Kiki and Angie say.
“It’s an album that wears its vintage influences on its sleeve, both in sound and aesthetic, but the attitude and energy they pack into every song keeps it feeling fresh. “For this album, we were heavily influenced by ’77 punk, 60s garage, and girl groups,” they explain. “When Angie joined the band, we’d get together a lot to write, show each other songs we’ve been working on, bounce ideas, and then record a rough demo of whatever song we were excited about at that moment. It wasn’t until we met Lucy we were able to be a real band and start gigging.”
This month, Lost Cat will take part in a Los Angeles residency at Harvard & Stone through May 31.
