KIDS - Lost Cities
“KIDS are making the most of their ethereal, spacey sound to create a world all their own” – VENTS
KIDS is an alt indie rock band from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Its members—Matthew Barrios, Joshua Diaz, Christian Gonzalez, Josiah Sampson and Andrew Woomer—are unified by one simple motive: stay true to yourself. There’s a Picasso quote — “All children are artists; the problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up”—they use to fuel that motive; it’s a reminder to always be anchored in authenticity.
First artists, then storytellers, KIDS uses cinematic instrumentation as a vehicle for their storytelling. Sweeping soundscapes and epic brass sections play to their eager and animated nature while showcasing their sophisticated musicianship. A self-expressed band of “sad boys,” KIDS sings songs of love and loss through a lens of escape and imagination.
Since their conception in 2012, KIDS released a full-length record in 2015 and have now released Lost Cities via Tooth & Nail Records.
