It’s gotta be something in the water. Or maybe it’s just good ole fashioned Dope Fucking Talent, because Kids on Bridges are our new favs. If you haven’t heard of them yet, you should. And if they maintain the course, you will. Fresh from a support slot with Grammy Award Winner Beck and shows with The Hot 8 Brass Band, Soulwax and Calvin Harris, the Liverpool trio unleash a new single ‘Something In The Water’. Set in Los Angeles and surrounding areas of the city, the video paints the backdrop for a song that creates a perfect synergy between music and art and the result is a truly uplifting cinematic and musical experience.
Kids On Bridges are currently heading back over to America where they are going to finish work on a brand new album and have drafted in Eagles of Death Metal bass player Jennie Vee to join them on a number of tracks, along with New Orleans poet Chuck Perkins. Having previously worked with The Chemical Brothers producer Steve Dub, the new album promises to be a sonic assault! Although the guys are certainly no strangers to having great guest performances on their releases, the last single ‘Say Ok’ featured New Orleans drumming legend Zigaboo Modeliste of the Meters. The band also found themselves nominated for best Alt video at the Paramount Awards in Hollywood for the single ‘Something in the Water’.
The bands versatility has seen them described as somewhere between Mutemath,Two Door Cinema Club and Daft Punk. “Something In The Water” certainly plays on the bands strengths of massive anthemic hooks with an electronic backdrop, it was recently described as “so fresh you could eat it ” and “More hooks than a cloak room” the track has been a live favorite of the fans at recent shows. Comparisons have been drawn to bands like Phoenix and Mutemath. The band have also been working with New Orleans drumming legend Zigaboo Modeliste of The Meters.
2016 saw the band head out to America to perform a sold out show at The Viper Room after legendary station KROQ picked up the track ‘Walls’ , they were also honored to be the UK represensatives at last years Special Olympics in LA performing alongside Stevie Wonder. With excellent performances at Wickerman, Bestival and Ibiza Rocks, the future couldn’t be looking brighter for these Wall of Sound champions!
