Kidsmoke - Rising Sun

“Their songs to date are like exquisite, detail-rich pastoral pop miniatures, all lovestruck or lovelorn lyrics, perfect chord progressions, dovetailing harmonies and jingle-jangling guitars.” – The Sunday Times. Kidsmoke are Lance (Vocals/Guitar), James (Bass/Vocals), Sophie (Guitar/Vocals) and Ash (Drums). Their shimmering brand of dreamy indie-pop has seen them make waves in their native North Wales (UK). The Wrexham-based 4 piece have made a flying start to 2018, adding to their Netflix sync deal (Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror) with a ‘BBC6 Music recommends track of the week’ from Steve Lamacq, support dates with Bryde, Euros Childs and Gaz Goombes - as well a special performance with the Joy Formidable as part of Robert Smith’s Meltdown Festival. The four-piece note The Smiths, The Beatles, Wild Nothing and Real Estate among their many influences and have garnered a reputation for producing well-crafted, super-catchy indie-pop nuggets. A dynamic and engaging act, their live shows are not to be missed – they have several major festivals under their belts including Festival Number 6, Green Man, Focus Wales and Dot to Dot.
