Mr.Kitty: Emotional electropop dealing with self-doubt, uncertainty and sorrow

J.N. May 13, 2019

Mr.Kitty is for most South Park fans mostly known as Cartman’s pet cat. However, Texas-based musician Mr.Kitty is something completely different, confronting the listener with a synth-driven emotional journey through a mental breakdown.

Mr.Kitty’s sound has been so fully realized for so long now that any new album from Forrest LeMaire brings with it a host of questions, especially in the case of new record “Ephemeral”. Using a minimal set of sounds, he creates lush atmospheres with crystalline synths, hard-hitting beats, and infectious vocal hooks. A cold sense of urgency lies within the span of those meticulously constructed pieces on the 30-song strong album, but also a voice of sincerity in the lyrics. Already at “A.I.”, LeMaire demonstrated his consolidated aesthetics as a producer of emotional electropop, but also his skill as a producer, performer and songwriter, and continues what he started at “Ephemeral”.

Those seeking the sort of emotional club songs will find them in good supply on his albums.

Music researcher with an unhealthy passion for music and music festivals. Former studio owner, semi-functional drummer and with a fairly good collection of old analogue synthesizers from the 70's. Indie rock, post rock, electronic/industrial and drum & bass (kind of a mix, yeah?) are usual stuff in my playlists but everything that sounds good will fit in.
