English Rosa is the second single to be released from experimental rockers Kitten Pyramid taken from the debut album in wait, ‘Uh Oh’, recorded at legendary Rockfield Studios (home of Queen, Oasis, Coldplay and the Stone Roses etc) with their producer Nick Brine who has also worked with all of the aforementioned artists.
Debut single also called 'Uh Oh' received critical acclaim from a whole host of national TV, radio and press.
Comparisons and influences lean towards Field Music, Bowie, Queen, Talk Talk, Zappa, Lou Reed, Swans, and perhaps many other iconic cult figures who in the past have created outstanding bodies of work. Such a formidable comparison list might seem a tad presumptuous but the album’s illustrious producer is highly impressed with the outcome.
“The Kitten Pyramid session was a great experience for me. It was so refreshing to have such an exciting and creative approach to making a record. Bands like this don't come along very often so I was really pleased that our paths had crossed and got to make something so interesting.
It's definitely been one of the most creative, fun, rewarding and at times heart felt albums I've had the pleasure to work on.
I can't wait for everyone else to enter kitten pyramids world.”
‘Uh Oh’ is the culmination of several talented people collaborating to create something that is refined, spectacular, exciting and intricate but also communicates the beginning of a story which will evolve throughout this year and no doubt fascinate many.
The whole album centres around the day in the life of a young schizophrenic Polish immigrant arriving in the UK to work (loosely based on lead member Scott Milligan's late uncle, Jarek Baczyk) and will be the soundtrack to a film, also being created by Scott due also for release later on in the year.
