“Your favorite anthropomorphic riot-kittens” - Bust Magazine
"...the instrument-swappin’, telephone-screamin’, Beyoncé-supportin’ three-piece ushering in a new wave of Midwestern riot grrrl." - VICE's Noisey
Kitten Forever approaches their third full-length album, 7 Hearts, with a big sister attitude; it’s wild and hurt with chin held high. Themes of heartbreak, illness, fear, and friendship develop through personal and interpersonal metamorphosis and result in dichotomies of isolation and intimacy, dense sunlight and glittery darkness.
Members Liz Elton, Corrie Harrigan, and Laura Larson continue Pressure’s ritual of regularly trading off on all instruments, pushing their versatility of multi-faceted songwriting and individual lyrical development. Recorded and mixed by Matt Castore at A Harder Commune Studios in St. Paul, MN and mastered by the accomplished Sarah Register, 7 Hearts is at once caustic, illuminating, fierce, and tender. Fifteen tracks in just under 30 minutes, the album rapid fire transmutes common experiences and emotions, a validation of so many things you feel but don’t say. If Pressure was feminist sleepovers, roller discos, and luster,7 Hearts is a bottle rocket in the dark.
