It's been a month since Florida teen Kitty Pryde entered our world with her viral hit, "Okay Cupid." The video now sits at over 300,000 views on YouTube and a lot has changed for her since we last spoke. She's been written about in TIME and the New York Times, she has a concert in NYC later this week, and she actually got to meet her rap idol Danny Brown.
Cool. Kitty Pryde won over the Twitterati and successfully infiltrated the blogosphere, but as we sometimes forget, Internet sensations have to follow up with more music eventually. Today, Kitty Pryde rises to the occasion with her haha, i'm sorry EP. It's a five-track opus with more ethereal production from Beautiful Lou, a respectably aloof Riff Raff appearance, and a flippant take on Carly Rae Jepsen's smash, "Call Me Maybe."
If you found Kitty's previous efforts charming, then you'll that be pleased to know that haha, i'm sorry has a lot more to offer in that realm. Her approach still isn't terribly serious, but looking past the sugarcoated observations about young love and requisite adolescent giggles, it's clear that she knows how to craft a song. It'll be interesting to see where she goes from here.
