K.I.D Releases “Poster Child” EP-Catch K.I.D on Tour with Cupcakke in Select US Cities
K.I.D Featured as Vevo DSCVR’s Ones to Watch for 2017
K.I.D performs songs about sexual frustration, anxiety, insomnia and other personal crises. While most modern pop seems to center around topics of love or the high life, K.I.D are providing a soundtrack for the highly medicated and the depressive. K.I.D’s new EP “Poster Child,” available digitally everywhere today via Columbia Records, can be streamed and purchased here: http://smarturl.it/PosterChildEP.
Produced by Mike Crossey (The 1975, Wolf Alice, Arctic Monkeys), K.I.D’s new EP “Poster Child” juxtaposes brutally candid lyrics against glimmering, refined pop production that draws influence from 90s and 2000s alternative acts. The EP gives fans a taste of what they can expect from the band’s full-length debut later this year.
“Poster Child” features “Boy,” a song the band describes as a “suburban love anthem about blue balls,” and “I Cannot Sleep At Night,” an insomnia diary set to dark electronic production. The EP includes previously released tracks “Errors,” which premiered on Fader, and “Taker,” which premiered on Vice’s Noisey. K.I.D, known for their visual flair and dark sense of humor, will also release a new video directed by Bradley & Pablo for “Taker” next week.
