Keeping it full of delicious attitude, Pep Squad, the latest project from the creative powerhouse that is Kat Leon of the LA-based band Holy Wars, has released a new track titled “It’s My Party.” A play off the 60’s pop song popularized by Lesley Gore, Pep Squad take it to a nefarious level with their brash rendition.

This once sweet song will send chills down your spine and it’s just in time for spooky season. Listen closely and you’ll hear Leon’s witchy cackle.

“Our team suggested doing a cover of “It’s My Party” by Lesley Gore and I (Kat) personally connected to the song as it was a favorite of mine as a kid and reminded me of the times listening to the oldies with my Dad, hanging at car shows and winning hula hoop contests for a free kids meal at Roy Rogers…”
