Dublin-born and London-raised, 25-year-old singer-songwriter Kitty has already captivated audiences with her sincere vocals, introspective lyrics, and catchy indie-pop hooks. Her new single, ‘Sympathy Pains’ is the premiere of Kitty’s highly anticipated second EP, Swimming for Dummies – released on 3 November. Her early single ‘4 Days 4 Nights‘ quickly gained recognition and was featured on BBC’s Introducing London and Spotify’s Spanish Viral Top 50 Playlist. Her music has also appeared on TV’s Big Little Lies soundtrack. Her new 5-track record is set to be released in May 2024.
Kitty softly croons quiet ballads through her candidly humorous, but at times blunt, window into the trials and tribulations of being a young, queer woman on her journey towards self-discovery. Written about the emotional weight of emphatic fatigue, the newly released single highlights Kitty’s mature sensibilities; married with sparkling indie-pop sensation. Soft instrumentals ebb and flow with her aching whispers. With a sound that’s distinctively hers, her voice undoubtedly resonates with a widely diverse audience.
“This song marks a new beginning for me and my music, with a sound I created with my producer, Jules Konieczny, that feels like my personality in a song, so I’m really proud of it! I wrote it about a friend who was leaning on me like a therapist so much that it started to impact my own mental health, which is when the words ‘sympathy pains’ came to me. When I brought the idea to my good friend and co-writer, Francesca Morris, the song just started flowing,” Kitty said of her new single.
