Premiere: Kool Stuff Katie: It’s Fine

Portland duo, Kool Stuff Katie are preparing to release their new album It’s Fine on March 11th. Surviving the Golden Age is excited to offer an exclusive stream of the album.

Being a male/female guitar and drum duo, Kool Stuff Katie can not escape the White Stripe comparisons. On the album opener “It’s All Your Fault,” you can hear a bit of “Fell In Love With a Girl” with the track’s fuzzed out guitar and manic energy but over the course of It’s Fine the band distances themselves from obvious comparisons. The album’s titular track is a mid-tempo ballad that is the first time Saren Oliver takes lead vocals. With the Motown influence and female lead vocals, “It’s Fine” is reminiscent of the Pipettes.

Whether it’s reviving the garage rock revival or exploring more esoteric influences, Kool Stuff Katie’s It’s Fine is a fun listen. Preorder the album here.
