Rainbow Kitten Surprise is an indie pop outfit from Boone, North Carolina. The band was formed in an Appalachian State dorm room in 2013 by singer Ela Melo and guitarist Darrick Keller. They released their first acoustic EP Mary before adding additional members to the band including Ethan Goodpaster on guitar, Charlie Holt on bass, and Jess Haney on drums. The full group had a bigger sound heard on their debut album Seven which was later lumped in with the EP in a release called Seven + Mary. In 2015, the band’s second album RKS was released via Split Rail and was a viral success through the single “Devil Like Me.” Two years later, Rainbow Kitten Surprise hit the festival circuit, making appearances at Bonnaroo, Firefly, and Austin City Limits. The band signed with Elektra Records for their third album How To: Friend, Love Freefall which came in 2018. The tour for this album included a sold-out Red Rocks show as well as a series of shows in Athens, Georgia at the Georgia Theater which became the 2021 concert album RKS! Live from Athens Georgia.
