New UK Prog/Psych Discovery: Kitten Pyramid - "Uh Oh" from forthcoming debut album

Kitten Pyramid is a prog/psych outfit from the UK - they've recorded a debut album and are sharing an advance track, "Uh Oh". This is pretty exciting - great guitars, strong vocals and serious prog rock moves with psychedelic touches. For now, this is the only track to stream:

They've got everything in there - horns, piano, screaming lead guitar with feedback - and it all comes together. They are working with respected UK producer Nick Brine (Beta Band, Oasis, Stone Roses, Coldplay to name a few) and he's done a good job capturing their sound and pushing the limits, I think. As further background, here's a 2012 video for their song "Crazy Diamonds" - slower-building but still a nice combination of prog and psych:

If you've read our blog for a while, you know how much we revere artists able to incorporate several of the four P's (prog, psych, punk and pop) in the same song. That translates to pretty high hopes for Kitten Pyramid.
