Following on from the release of their breakthrough debut singles ‘Alcohol & Cigarettes’ and ‘Settle Down’ and follow up single ‘Night Bus’, which have since been supported by the likes of BBC Radio 1 and Radio X, London-based outfit KIDS are continuing their genre-bending ways with the release of their latest offering ‘Worthy’, the first of many in 2023.
Matching the same fresh and inventive approach we heard on their first releases, ‘Worthy’ sees the band in a warm and reflective guise. Confronting the issues that masculinity can cause on both mental and physical health, their contemplative spirit is paired perfectly with a bright and infectious groove throughout.
Speaking about the new track, they said,
"Worthy is an admission of guilt to the negative aspects of masculinity. It talks about the self-destructive side of dating without an end goal- not being ready to commit and in the process hurting yourself and others around you because of your own insecurities. It is a discussion on masculinity, how a lot of men are taught to fight through their problems without fixing or resolving the issues that cause them."
Dealing with early breakups and growing up in the capital, KIDS’ music tells the story of band leaders Beau Blaise and Alex Harvey, life-long friends who have written their debut EP ‘Love and the City 1’ out of their own stories of growth.
Having already established a devout fanbase from a string of live performances recently, including supporting Gang of Youths, appearances at Leopallooza, The Great Escape and Live at Leeds Fest and gathering support from the BBC, KIDS are keen to get their music out into the world.
