The Lounge Kittens have released another video and this time it's Alice Cooper classic 'Poison', the opening track from debut album 'Sequins & C-Bombs'.
"This was the first song we ever arranged as a group", Jen (the Red one) tells us. "It was always going to be the first track on the album because it's such an important part of the TLK story. It's become a firm favourite with fans and a stalwart of our live shows so it feels great to have been able to give it its proper attention in the recording studio."
"And Alice Cooper seems to think it's alright too", Timia (the Blue one) chimes in. "We got to meet Alice at Stone Free Festival and he is every bit the charming legend you expect him to be. And we managed not to pass out or puke up whilst talking to him so I'm guessing he feels the same way about us haha. It's a massive honour to have the original artist hear our take on their songs and we're still feeling a little overwhelmed by this one."
"Have you ever been in a relationship with someone and there comes a time and a place, where you have to give up on it... for them? It's about giving up to give in", said Shayley about Dayshell's new song 'Improvise'. Dayshell will release their second album 'Nexus' on October 7th via Spinefarm.

Sounds like a typical day in our office.

Frontlady Vicky Psarakis spoke about the making of the video: "'The Moment' was probably the most exciting and demanding video I've had to shoot so far. Chris came up to me with the idea to create a storyline with a close up of just my face singing the lyrics underwater. And we achieved it by building a box with a plexiglas panel that fit my head, while the rest of my body was standing and perfectly dry.
"I guess you could say it was scary and awkward to have just your head submerged underwater and a bit dangerous to have to perform the entire song in that position, but honestly, I wouldn't mind doing the whole thing all over again."

"We wanted to make something deep that will provoke thought. It had to be evil though. We’re not trying to make it happy. It’s called blues for a reason! It was also an opportunity to show the world what a phenomenal guitar player Tony is."

Previous episodes have covered bands such as Abaddon Incarnate, Ilenkus, From the Bogs of Aughiska and Slidhr.
