KITTIE's MORGAN On Writing New Material: No Rush, No Deadlines

February 9, 2004

The members of KITTIE recently spoke to about the progress of the songwriting sessions for the follow-up to 2001's "Oracle".

"You know, surprisingly I personally have had yet to encounter any difficulty while writing this time around," said frontwoman Morgan Lander. "I definitely can say that by far this is the most relaxed and stress-free experience we have ever had while creating. Plus this is by far the most accomplished material ever in all of this band's career, which is the exciting part for us. It just feels like there are no deadlines, and no rush to get this done."

Added bassist Jennifer Arroyo, "There's really nothing 'hard' about creating music... I mean, you have a couple of tough riffs and BAAM, there is a foundation for a song right there. Creating songs and working on them is just an amazing process... it's like they become your kids in a sense because you crafted this 4 - 5 minute monster that you can't wait for people to hear. To me, it's one of the best parts of being a musician... I love creating and I love bouncing ideas around and trying things out that you might not have thought of when you were first thinking of a structure. Like different arrangements and tempo... etc... etc... Bottom line is that the hardest part will be waiting for it to finally be recorded and finally out in stores."

Two soundclips from KITTIE's most recent demo are still available for download via the band's official web site. Check them out: "Until the End" (mp3),"Burning Bridges" (mp3).
