Tired of waiting for the release of their debut album ‘Sequins & C-Bombs’, alt-harmony group The Lounge Kittens, have proffered their first video from the as yet undisclosed track listing. A tongue-in-cheek twist on AC/DC’s killer classic ‘Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap’ sees the girls return to office jobs… as hitmen with a difference.

“The album doesn’t come out till September and frankly, we’re bored of keeping it all a secret” says Blue Kitten, Timia. “So we thought right, time to make some more videos – it’s been AGES.”
And it seems there’s a lot more to come… “Whilst there’s some debate raging about which songs to release from the album and what would make a good single and blah, blah we decided we didn’t have enough to do so set ourselves the challenge of releasing a brand new video every month until the end of the year.” Zan Kitten (the Pink one) tells us.
“The videos are what the fans want. It’s what we’re best known for” chimes in the little Red one, Jen “and they’re really fun to make! For example, this one we filmed over two night shoots, after working all day. But what’s more fun than hunting people through the streets of London armed with fistfuls of glitter!?!”
Releasing this trail of videos on the 16th of the month, every month means we might as well stick a recurring reminder in our diaries and write off any thoughts of achieving anything on the 16th of the month now, as we’ll be glued to YouTube, eagerly awaiting the drop of the next instalment. “That’s exactly it, yeah. Now you all know the schedule, you know where you have to be and when… but not what to expect!” confirms Zan.
“We’ve wanted to do an AC/DC track for ages, the only question was WHICH ONE?” enthuses Jen. “With so many bangers to choose from, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap was the shy one hiding round the corner, just to the side of some of the more well-known hits squeaking ‘pick me, pick me’ and it totally works as a Kitten track.”
“It’s so much fun to sing live” says Timia Kitten “like a cross between a smoke-filled backroom, speakeasy and a good ole knees up round the Joanna. We’ll definitely be busting it out at Stone Free Festival this weekend.”
