Finale Friday 7E/4P

For the past week or so I’ve been listening to an indie playlist and while listening I’ve come across a number of good bands. Black Kids are one of those bands. A lot of the bands on the playlist are your typical indie rock bands, which are great, but not Black Kids. Their sound caught my attention and I kept going back thinking ‘who sings this again’ until I remembered who they were.
Black Kids have a dancey rock sound to them similar to Brighton’s The Go! Team but less hip-hop and more rock. You can hear how Black Kids have more rock in them in their first single I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance with You. It has a few guitar solos and has a natural sound to it. Not only is this tune catchy but it makes for a great sing-a-long song live! Their other single Hurricane Jane is just as catchy and a little less dancey but still awesome!
Back in August Black Kids released their first EP on their MySpace as a free download and are scheduled to release their first album Partie Traumatic in late July! Check them out and let me know what you think of them!
They are currently on tour and are playing a sold out show tonight at The Phoenix.Tweet
