Kid Wave- 'Wonderlust' is out June 2nd on Heavenly Recordings.


Kid Wave- 'Wonderlust' is out June 2nd on Heavenly Recordings.  The band premiered lead single 'Honey' on FADER and just released their new track 'Wonderlust' which you can watch to here.


The international two girl/two boy quartet's debut album Wonderlust is a crafted set of pop songs that bathe in the golden, restorative rays more commonly associated with life on the Californian coast rather than London, where Kid Wave reside. This is music that's delivered with an uplifting sense of youthful wild abandon and imbued throughout with blissful surges of musical serotonin but with clear undercurrents of a wistful sense of melancholy too. Occasionally dark clouds obscure their sonic sunshine and there's a nagging sense that no summer lasts forever.

Honey

Kid Wave craft slacker indie rock and transcendental dream-laden pop of a distinctly early 90s bent – music to lose yourself in and give your life to. We hear shades of Lush and Dinosaur Jr. in their sonic sunshine, though other ears might recall PJ Harvey, The Lemonheads, The Breeders, Pavement, Teenage Fanclub. But these are all bands largely operational before the members of Kid Wave were even born – artists who singer Lea readily admits she doesn't always necessarily know much about - so let's not get too entrenched in nostalgia for days gone by. The one thing that perhaps unites this music of the past with the Kid Wave's effervescent present is an infatuation with melody; this quartet never sacrifice the song for volume or let the feedback do the work. Because at the centre, beneath the shoe-gazing dynamics and the dark lyrical undercurrents that speak of existential quandaries and the confusions of young life in the 21st century, is a big beating gorgeous pop heart.

These are timeless songs that sing of life-defining moments, Wonderlust sure to soundtrack many a young romantic fumbling or infatuation, wild party or sun-rise revelation. Kid Wave are the sound of liberation – of the very essence of life itself
