Grit and grace with the band Sleepy Kitty

Grimy meets shiny in Sleepy Kitty’s music. The duo’s chugging drums and crunchy guitars are sweetened by catchy melodies and vocal harmonies that summon memories of 1960s-era girl groups.

Take “Seventeen,” which transmogrifies the Beatles’ “I Saw Her Standing There” into a clanging drone that directly channels the Velvet Underground.
