Gosh, you know what’s just swell? Kittens. Come to mention it, bunnies are swell, too. And adorable, much like perennially heartwarming indie pop duo Mates of State. Consensus says that if you want to feel like you’re looking at a kitten or a bunny, but you have no kitten or bunny to look at, you should probably listen to Mates of State.
Now, here me out: traveling kitten tour. It’s just like going to any rock ‘n’ roll music show, except instead of some sweaty people, the stage is covered with kittens. You just watch them do their thing for a good hour. Then you go home! It’s a great idea. Science isn’t quite up to snuff yet, though, so we’ll just have to settle for a Mates of State tour. In February, the kitten-and-bunny of indie pop groups will head out on a quick tour of the Northeast. While that’s happening, a video of a kitten and a bunny on YouTube will be approaching 10 million views.
