Austria’s KIDCAT LO​-​FI provides “Hate Summer” as cool indie tune to beat the heat

Viennese garage-y pop band KIDCAT LO-FI sent us a link to their new EP, 4 SEASONS, and while it does in deed cover all 4 season, their summer song is particularly applicable for RVA at the moment.


Viennese garage-y pop band KIDCAT LO-FI sent us a link to their new EP, 4 SEASONS, and while it does in deed cover all 4 season, their summer song is particularly applicable for RVA at the moment.

Whether it’s the heat, the beach, or sports outside, KIDCAT LO-FI hates it and wants you to shut up about it – but they’re saying it in the nicest way. Check out the video below:

Told you it was sugary and delightful and has a lot of good points as the temps hit 100o this week.

The rest of the album is just as pop-tastic and refreshing with increasingly brutal lyrics. Check out their Bandcamp here or embedded below:
