Listen to the podcast interview with KIT MAJOR:

I’m not gonna lie, I’m not a huge fan of pop music. That said, I must admit I'm not totally immune to the genre. I've been spotted dancing to Taylor Swift occasionally. Over the summer, I might (according to unreliable witnesses) have sang Britney's Baby One More Time at the karaoke. In my world, pop is okay when booze is involved (with moderation, of course). Okay, I won't usually blast N'Sync or One Direction in my car or listen to that kind of stuff alone; that's the line I won't cross. Yet, this week, we delve into Pop territory. I know, I'm always ranting about rock n' roll but trust me on this one, because we're not far away from that world. And it's actually way more punk that you might think.


You see, Kit Major, the artist I got this week on Hanging On Sunset, piqued my curiosity when she said she mixes Sonic Youth and Britney Spears. To some ears, that's demonic, that's even a blasphemy against the rock culture. But in a way, it's also very liberating to sabotage the sometimes snobbish mindset of the so-called 'true' music lovers. Kit Major literally explodes the norms of music by blending things that didn't blend before. Anyway, that's how music always evolve. There wouldn't be no Elvis if it wasn't for the blending of Gospel, Rhythm N' Blues and Country.


Purists will cringe. But as soon as the concept of purity is involved, I'm out! Who wants to be that guy? Not me! So, I invited Kit to the show and I have to say, her love for Britney is equal to that of Green Day, Lady Gaga, and David Bowie. As most people in the new generation, she doesn't care and doesn't apologize for mixing those things. That's pretty punk, in my opinion. That's right, Boomer!


Kit's just released God Complex, and she also gratified us with a live acoustic version of Rot Ur Mind, since, yes, we're launching HOS TV!


Kit honoured us by debuting this new video format. From now on, you'll get to discover the artists we put in the spotlight not only in interview, but also live! If you don't have time to watch the live version on YouTube, we also put it at the end of the podcast so you get a double dose of Kit Major today. Don't you think it's nice?
