Australian band The Electro Kid!is releasing their brand new EP entitled “Pixels” in two days. They might have an average age of 18, but don't take them as newbies. They have been around Australian stages since 2010, opening for bands such as Tonight Alive, Rufio and more. They won an award for a single, and were featured in two big Australian music magazines, Blunt Magazine and Dmag. In mid-2013, the band travelled to Sydney to record their new EP, which has some electro music touches, but do not forget their fathers bands, such as Blink-182, some kind of The Ready Set, and other pop-rock bands. The band might be young and unsigned, but they will take over 2014 for sure.
On February 1st, The Electro Kid are releasing physically, and on iTunes, their new EP, which can be (pre-) ordered right here, including two bundles, with a price range from $10 to $30. That's cheap, get yours now.
The first song off the EP is called “Dial Tone” and was featured on the Fake Moon Promotion 2013 Winter Sampler, with a lyric video which includes live footage from the Raw Sounds Fringe Festival, and during the recording of the EP in Sydney. The song itself has just few electro music touches, but well included. Singer's (Tristan) voice recalls a young Mark Hoppus, in early Blink-182 songs.
The six songs long EP will definitely make you dance again and again, on both music kinds. There is, actually, one song which most present genre is electro, a song entitled “Say, That's It! You Think Of A Wonderful Thought”. This EP does not sound like it was recorded by... “young” musicians. Simply because The Electro Kid! are not kids anymore. They know how to write music and lyrics.
The band's new EP is available for stream right now. Have a listen, and dance.
