Kitten teases album with propulsive synth-pop on “I Did It!”

When it seems impossible to continue its climb, the new track from pop group Kitten just keeps going, creating a prolonged sensation of being lifted up, while band leader Chloe Chaidez sings with buoyant optimism over already anthemic backing instrumentals. “I Did It!” shows Kitten as a pop force with a handle for ‘80s glitz and modern production tricks. Though Chaidez sings of past mistakes, its done with poise and confidence, ready to move forward as the sheen of smiling synth-pop propels her on. It’s the group’s first release since 2016’s “Heaven Or Somewhere In Between” and teases a new self-produced album slated for later this year. Listen to “I Did It!” below. – Cameron Carr
