Kitten Pyramid and Jalapeños

Experimental UK pop-proggers Kitten Pyramid follow up their recent single ‘Road Hog’, with new track ‘Jalapeños’ out now on Flip Flop Records and taken from the Burton-Upon-Trent band’s upcoming album and short film Kiddo, due this year.

Written by Kitten Pyramid mainman Scott Milligan, ‘Jalapeños’ is a punky number augmented by a rich, filmic, orchestral arrangement featuring a children’s choir (Kidz R Us Choir, of Tredegar). 

It imagines a future of 2050 where the last remaining meat-eaters are forced underground, to defend themselves from hails of jalapeno bullets from The Vegan Army. As emotions and the imagination run wild, it’s a plea for calmness and rationalism.

Kiddo is also a short film about animal rights, written by Milligan, produced by Static Flow Productions and directed by Brett Chapman to be released 1st October. The work has caught the attention of The Vegetarian Society who celebrate their 175th birthday this September and have invited Kitten Pyramid to join in their celebrations.
 
‘Jalapeños’ was co-produced with Nick Brine (Oasis, Stone Roses, Ash, Teenage Fanclub, The Darkness) and Scott Milligan. Original band member Chris Baldwin (also in Paddy Considine’s band Riding The Low) plays guitar on the track alongside long-time Kitten Pyramid collaborator Andrew Griffiths of AGM Productions for orchestration.
  
Kitten Pyramid began as a collective in 2010, the brainchild of Milligan and initially ranged from two to 20 members. In 2013 they released their debut album Uh-Oh!, followed by the EP High Five Scuba Dive, with Procol Harum’s late guitarist Dave Balfeaturing on both releases (and as the Grim Reaper in the video for ‘English Rosa’). In 2015 they caught the ear of 6Music presenter and performer Tom Robinson, who took them out on his UK tour. Kitten Pyramid launched Uh-Oh! with a tour of psychiatric hospitals, second album Koozy!! was released in April 2021.
