Ever wondered what a crowd surfing feline looks like? Thanks to the newly released Sapphic Musk "Kittenz" music video you can see it happen!

The self proclaimed "homo-centric Euro-Nordic hard rock" band Sapphic Musk created something that is sure to set the blogosphere ablaze. "Kittenz," the latest single in the band's arsenal, is now available digitally via Amoeba.com. "Kittenz," produced by Bob Marlette (Rob Zombie, Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper), boasts heavy guitar riffs over big tight drums. It's the stuff that turns mosh pits into raging tornadoes! Tastefully produced and perfectly executed, the single definitely stands on its own. Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, the ladies of Sapphic Musk drop a gem of a video to accompany their feline fantasy. 

Shot at the famed DIY punk venue The Smell, the video opens with the meow of a cute and cuddly kitten just before Sapphic Musk unleashes a sonic assault of rock goodness. Complete with on screen explosions and cut-aways of little kittens, the video has subtle nods to cheesy old school editing that makes for a super entertaining watch. But don't let the cute kittens fool you. Vocalist Sara T. Russell, dressed in a horned headpiece sings, "claws like demon knives, they don't die they've got nine lives..."  A simple reminder that even the cutest of kittens can be the most demonic. Guitarist Mia Ferraro and bassist Christy Greenwood lay down some serious headbanging while drummer Tammy Germani channels her inner Black Sabbath a la Bill Ward as Sapphic Musk rocks out to a packed house of die hard fans. The end result is an awesome song with a tongue-in-cheek video that is well worth the watch... over and over again.   

Sapphic Musk is quickly picking up steam in the short year they've been around. They have opened for pioneering gay punk rock band Pansy Division in Los Angeles, and performed the main stage at the famed Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco. Their legion of enthusiastic fans, dubbed the "Musketeers," continue to flock to their energetic and humorous live shows. Watch the full video and be thoroughly entertained. Take note of the crowd surfing feline. It's too awesome!
