Kill It Kid
UK - One Little Indian
Signed just 12 weeks from inception following a John Parish (PJ Harvey) produced EP; Kill It Kid hit Ryan Hadlock’s (The Gossip, Johnny Flynn) Seattle studio to lay down their début album – later critically appraised across the board (“An Outstanding British Record 9/10” Clash Magazine. XFM New Music Award finalists, alongside The XX & Florence).
Life on the road, coupled with a misguided ‘nu-folk’ tag, pushed the band towards a new, dirtier, blues inspired sound. Recent single ‘Pray On Me’ proved grittier than anything prior, marrying a punishing riff a la Black Keys to Turpin’s anguished howl – and the band promise the forthcoming album – recorded with producer Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, Brett Anderson) – to be ‘raw, inelegant and untainted’.
