Kid Wave is the brainchild of songwriter and musician Lea Emmery who moved from Sweden to London in her teens to do music. Two hours after putting up two home made recordings online the circus started and the acclaimed debut album Wonderlust came out via Heavenly Recordings in 2015. The album was voted Album of the Day/week on BBC in the UK in June 2015 as well as KEXP and XFM and had instant support from radio stations such as BBC, Triple J and KCRW in the US. Kid Wave known for being an energetic live act have since sold out headline shows across Europe and toured with acts like The Vaccines, Stereophonics and The Shins.
The new single ”Everything Changes” was co produced and mixed by Lewis Pesacov (Best Coast, Fidlar, Deap Vally) in Los Angeles and is set for release in March 2017.
