River Kittens, Allie Vogler and Mattie Schell sound like they’ve been singing together their entire lives. They sing like angels and fight like sisters, even though the pair first met and sang together at a metal bar in 2014. They’re salty and sweet, and sometimes sour too, but their two unique approaches blend together perfectly. River Kittens’ effortless harmonies and honest songwriting can move an audience to laughter or tears, sometimes both.
