Kitten frontwoman Chloe Chaidez is just 18 years old, but the Los Angeles-based five-piece already have a number of releases to their name: 2010's self-released Sunday School EP and 2012's major-label debut EP, Cut It Out. On August 27, the dance-rock outfit will issue a third EP, Like a Stranger, whose title track is dark but glitzy union of post-punk melodrama and New Wave synth symphonics. Head below for strobing electronics, smoldering vocals, and a breathy spoken-word snippet that recalls Madonna at her finest. Pre-order the upcoming Like a Stranger EP via iTunes

Like a Stranger EP track list: 

1. "Like a Stranger" 
2. "Yesterday" 
3. "I'll Be Your Girl" 
4. "Doubt" 
5. "Graffiti Soul" 
6. "King of Kings"
