Sapphic Musk’s “KITTENZ” Video Is A Dream Come True

Fans of heavy metal and tiny kittens alike will rejoice in this amazing new video from Sapphic Musk, a self-described lesbian Viking metal band from Leztonia. Currently based in Los Angeles, the band (consisting of vocalist Säärrää Trüssellsson guitarist Miiaa Ferrääro, bassist Christii Griinwiid and drummer Tammz Germansikgaard) formed just a year ago and seem poised to take over the world. Their thunderous new track “KITTENZ” was produced by Bob Marlette (Rob Zombie, Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper) and sounds like… well, like Black Sabbath if they were obsessed with cats.

Nothing else I tell you about this video will matter unless I inform you that it features:

  • kittens crowdsurfing
  • kittens trashing a dressing room
  • kittens jumping out of a bass drum
  • kittens operating fog machines
  • kittens blinking
  • kittens taking naps
  • Sapphic Musk shredding (guitars)
  • kittens shredding (furniture)

Sapphic Musk are hosting a premiere party for the single and video August 1 in LA at the Lyric Hyperion Theatre & Cafe. The band will be performing live and also hosting a Q&A about the video.

    I have zero interest usually in heavy metal, but put kittens in something and I will absolutely watch it. AND I DID NOT REGRET THIS DECISION! A person is wearing antlers (WHERE CAN I GET THOSE ANTLERS!) Kittens are literally all over this video! the meowing as lyrics!! And the lyrics “kittens to the left of me, kittens to the right, every freaking night” sounds like a dream come true. Wow. Thank you so much for introducing me to this.

    Säärrää Trüssellsson, Miiaa Ferrääro, Christii Griinwiid, Tammz Germansikgaard? As a Finnish person, this makes me a tiny bit uncomfortable. Like they are mocking my culture. If you like a Nordic vibe, why not choose real existing names instead of making fun of our languages…

      Hi Monae. In no way were we making fun of your language or culture; that’s not our thing. Early on we were using umlauts in our stage names only because we wished our boring American names were that interesting. No culture was a target. As an entertainer the only thing I care about is making people feel something positive whether it is humor, happiness or sexiness so imagine the disappointment in hearing what you have said. I can explain more about it if you would like via message otherwise please know there was nothing bad intended. Also, we dropped the umlauts a while ago though it still sometimes circulates on the web as current. Hope we can be friends and move forward.

        Hi Sara, thank you for yout thoughtful answer! As I said, I felt *a tiny bit* uncomfortable – your stage names didn’t insult me or anything, I was just unsure of what you were going after. So I’m happy for your clarification. All the best to you and your band!
