RELEASED: 24TH NOVEMBER 2014, HEAVENLY RECORDINGS

Kid Wave’s Gloom EP is anything but; probably due to the international heritage of the band and their mix of glacial cool, urban nous, and laidback vibes. London, Sweden and Australia coalesce to form a perfectly punky pop dynamic of boy/girl vocals. The standout track is Young Blood, which has elements of Nirvana and Pixies running through its veins to create fuzz, feedback, pounding drums and a nagging chorus.


Even better, it’s out on a 7”. Grab it while you can.
