Rainbow Kitten Surprise have shared “SVO,” as the fourth album track from the North Carolina-bred quartet’s first full-length release in six years, LOVE HATE MUSIC BOX, due out May 10, 2024 via Elektra and available to pre-order/pre-save HERE.

“SVO” follows the previously released “Overtime” featuring 7x-GRAMMY winner Kacey Musgraves, along with the lead single “Superstar” and surprise fan offering “LOL,” all of which are now streaming on all platforms. Both “Superstar” and “LOL” arrived accompanied by a music video directed by Matthew DeLisi [Paramore, Judah & The Lion] – streaming on the band’s official YouTube channel. “Superstar” is already charting and enjoying airplay across multiple radio formats. Early champions at Alternative include SiriusXM’s AltNation, KPNT in St. Louis, WLUM in Milwaukee, KDKB in Phoenix, and KXRK in Salt Lake City. At Triple A, the song is already added at KBCO in Denver, KCMP in Minneapolis, and KGSR in Austin.

After years of struggling with her own mental health that resulted in writer’s block, on-stage episodes, and tour cancellations, RKS singer/songwriter/frontperson Ela Melo was properly diagnosed and treated in 2023, vastly improving her quality of life. As if suddenly struck by creative intervention, songs once again poured out of her, writing at least one a day for an entire year and forming the backbone of their 22-track opus LOVE HATE MUSIC BOX. This epic mosaic of sound and emotion was fully realized once Rainbow Kitten Surprise- guitarists Bozzy Keller and Ethan Goodpaster, drummer Jess Haney and former bassist Charlie Holt – reconvened in the studio, adding another dimension sonically. Produced by Daniel Tashian (Kacey Musgraves) along with Konrad Snyder (Noah Kahan) and Melo, the much-anticipated album ponders life’s ups and downs, and traces the turbulent trajectory of relationships, painted out loud in hues of pop, electronic, rock, and hip-hop. As such, it finds the musicians at their most vulnerable, vibrant, and vital.
