If you caught Waterparks on their FANDOM tour like we did in late 2019, you might have gotten to experience beloved pop-rock band Kitten. Their 80s-infused, high-energy music is show-stopping. We get to see a different side of Kitten emerge from their most recent release, however: something softer, more delicate. Their hit ‘Memphis’ is now an acoustic love ballad that we’re obsessed with.
The original ‘Memphis’ is a bop that sounds like it’s straight out of a 90s sitcom, and it’s frontwoman Chloe Chaidez’s favorite song ever. We relate. “There is a tenderness to the melody that we thought would shine in an acoustic adaptation. The result is cute, giggly, and a bit sad, just like me,” she says. The song is undeniably adorable with some moody undertones.
We’re always wanting to hear your thoughts on these releases, honeybees: do you prefer this version of ‘Memphis’ to the original? Let us know your thoughts in the comments or on Twitter @TheHoneyPop! Many other bangers were dropped this week, too, so be sure to check out our Fresh Music Friday for the week!
