Urban pop gets rural with Kitty Coen’s ‘Cadillac’.   Spaghetti Western guitars float behind Coen’s breathy vocals as she spins a tale of foreboding.  The production sounds at times like Lana Del Rey being produced by Stuart Pearson: a gothic desert inhabited by a modern chanteuse.

Coen describes the track as a “metaphorical dance with the devil on fateful night in a desolate West Texas saloon.”  Now based in Nashville but clearly not straying far from her Texas roots Coen is creating her own new genre she dubs “witch rock”.
