Claps EP Release Party | Kitty Cat Klub | 1/23

Kitty Cat Klub held the EP release party for rising minimal synth trio, Claps. Their new EP is called “New Science,” and it was released on local record label, Guilt Ridden Pop.

Opening for Claps were Mercurial Rage and fellow label mates, Gospel Gossip.

As I mentioned before, Claps is a three piece synth pop band. Patrick Donohoe sings and Sara Abdelaal and Jed Smentek play on vintage synthesizers. When I found out they draw from influences such as Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark, New Order, and Suicide I knew I needed to check them out.

Jed drops the beats on a drum machine, and they all go to work. Sara and Jed complement each other playing bass and lead synth hooks while Patrick struts around in a frenzy reminding me of a convulsing Ian Curtis. This music is feel good and very contagious, and it will make you want to dance for days.

Check out when you can see Claps next, and listen to their music at Claps’ Myspace.

Buy their new EP at Electric Fetus or Treehouse record stores. You can download it off the internet soon. The EP features their hit song, “Fold,” and remixes from Sovietpanda (Too Much Love DJ), Busy Signals, and Chic Portier.
