Kill It Kid
Debut single, Send Me An Angel Down out May 18th.
One Little Indian are excited to welcome Bath 5-piece Kill It Kid to the roster, as a band set for great things in 2009. For want of an easy comparison, a blend Tom Waits, Anthony Hegarty and The Raconteurs has been mentioned. But Kill It Kid sound very much their own – an impassioned, adventurous slant on blues and dark pop through powerful songs, gorgeous two-part vocals and a penchant for down-home storytelling. Led by dual vocalists Chris Turpin and Stephanie Ward, Their demo/EP was produced by John Parish (as a visiting producer at Bath Spa University – where the band was founded) and the band is currently finishing their debut in Seattle with Ryan Hadlock (Johnny Flynn, The Strokes, Foo Fighters), in the same studio Fleet Foxes was laid down.
