Kitty’s Ode To Shuttered NYC Club 285 Kent Is Way Pretty

In her recent releases, Kitty‘s been using the prettiest beats in the game, and her new track “285” may have the most gorgeous arrangement yet, care of pinkiepieswear. She wrote the song “in loving memory of my late home away from home, 285 kent ave and all of the crazy fucking memories i’ve made there.” (285 Kent was a DIY music venue in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood which recently closed.)

It’s more dance-oriented than anything she has released in the past, thanks to the hyper, house-inflected beat. Kitty whispers her rapid fire rhymes over the twinkling sonics, then coos “We say goodbye, I guess / I will see you around / And I will clean up my mess / And I’ll never weigh you down” on the chorus.
