Kittyhawk “Drink the Kool-Aid” in New Video for
“Welcome Home” Today on AV Club

Debut LP Hello, Again Out Now via
Count Your Lucky Stars Records

Fall European Tour Dates Announced

Not only is the debut full-length Hello, Again from Chicago four-piece Kittyhawk out today on Count Your Lucky Stars Records, the band has also premiered a new video via AV Club for the track “Welcome Home”.  In the Mitchell Wojcik-directed video, the band joins a cult, drinks the literal Kool-Aid and goes to heaven for an absolutely epic pillow fight.  But, as the AV Club says, “It’s all in service of a song so subtly infectious that it makes the act of drinking Kittyhawk’s Kool-Aid less a suggestion, and one that listeners would willingly guzzle.”

Kittyhawk play the sort of wry, dryly sweet pop songs that call to mind early 2000s bands such as Rainer Maria and The Anniversary.  Trading bass guitar for a Farfiza organ, the band is anchored by the charming l harmonies of singer Kate Grube, whose narrative lyrics push their songs forward, inviting listeners to lean in a little closer.  After the release of several split releases and a self-titled EP, Hello, Again is now available via the Count Your Lucky Stars online store.
Kittyhawk announced a Fall European tour this week with Count Your Lucky Stars labelmates Dowsing in addition to their currently scheduled dates this week with Nai Harvest (all tour dates below, European details here).
