Kitten’s “Money” Video: Watch Chloe Chaidez & Ariel Pink Sleaze Around A Hotel Room

It may not be clear on the surface based on a few spins of their EPs, but Kitten have always aimed to be more than just another polished synth-rock group. On new song “Money,” they’ve finally indulged their weirder impulses, delivering an electro-rap puzzler with a video starring singer Chloe Chaidez sleazing around a hotel room with DIY indie retromaniac Ariel Pink.

The song is part noise-rap and part Kitty, the “chorus” abrasive and discordant. There’s even an allusion to Kendrick Lamar‘s “Girl, I know you want that dick” line from “Fuckin’ Problems” and a frigging hashtag-rap shout to Kim Deal. The visual is reminiscent of Charli XCX‘s “What I Like” video, which is fitting since Kitten opened for Charli (and that’s where Chaidez met Pink).

This first foray into rap is a scrapped tangent from their album sessions, so it won’t appear on their self-titled debut (out May 27), but according to Chaidez, we could hear more of these misfit songs in the weeks ahead. Watch the video up top, and see her full statement below.

In the process of recording the Kitten album we kept coming up with really cool ideas/beats that didn’t quite fit but  were really where I was at the moment.  Old Missy Elliot, Arca, Drake, Future, Yeezus, etc…I thought it might be a cool idea to release a few of the tracks. Just a way let loose and have a good time making music with different friends while waiting for the album to come out. Ariel stopped by for the video and we just shot us hanging out together. This video was directed by Kaitlin Christy. She’s a student at NYU and a close friend. It was a shot at an old Hollywood motel for about $300 and we had a great time making it.”
