Rising Boone, NC indie rock outfit Rainbow Kitten Surprise popped onto our radar of late with their catchy hooks, rhythmic harmonies, and heartfelt lyrics. Digging back through their catalog, starting with their 2013 debut, Seven + Mary, it’s clear to see influences ranging from Bon Iver to Kings of Leon, yet they manage to create a uniquely singular style that sets them apart from the flood of other “indie” rockers on the scene these days. Songs like the wildly catchy “Devil Like Me” from that release put them on the map, but touring and the release of their second LP, RKS, show a continued maturity in their sound.
Rainbow Kitten Surprise are playing tonight at Exit/In along side local faves The Gills and Luthi. A few $10 tickets still remain for the 9 p.m. show. If you need further convincing, head below to get a taste of each of the acts performing to push you over the edge.
