Kittyhawk – Hello Again (2014). Posted by NewAlbumReleases. net On October - 8 - 2014.
The sounds of slowed breathing. The main problem with the instrumentation of this album is the lack of a bass. While not having someone playing an upright or electric bass isn’t an issue, Kittyhawk doesn’t seem to fill that gap with anything. On multiple occasions, songs seem somewhat bottomless. This isn’t a problem on every track, but it is a reoccurring issue. Something on this album that might not be perfect for all listeners is the surplus of slow songs. This doesn’t detract from the overall listen and it gives this album a more laid-back sound.

The Chicago band is such a wonderful break from the proliferation of the sad emo boy’s club. Kate Grube’s earnest vocal work recalls bands like Rainer Maria, the Anniversary, and the Rocking Horse Winner. But that’s not to say Kittyhawk is another band simply regurgitating the music of scenes past. The band has its own distinct identity that sometimes punches you up hard and other times lulls you gently down. Really, we need more bands like this
This debut from Chicago's Kittyhawk definitely brings their emo forebears in Rainer Maria to mind, as well as the sugar-sweet sounds of the mainly forgotten but always excellent Ida. Some serious names to throw around for those who like emo, yes; but Kittyhawk pull it off on Hello, Again. The band's knack for writing catchy songs is absurd ( Jude II ), and their love of ’90s midwestern emo shines through loud and clear in the twangy guitar work throughout the disc ( Tourisme is the best example)
