Indie band KIDS tease upcoming EP “Love and the City 1” with an exclusive preview of brand new music video, “The Boy Won’t Grow Up”.
With all the craftiness of a great London-hailing indie group, KIDS are about to drop a self-made video for their track, “The Boy Won’t Grow Up”. It’s a stop-motion film that runs through the angsty lyrics of the original tune, before panning out to the band. With innovation at the forefront, the band truly committed to the spirit of DIY by sketching out hundreds of handmade drawings for the visuals. As Beau Blaise, who leads the band alongside lifelong mate Alex Harvey, explains “I realised that these pictures told the story better than I could. So I made a stop-motion movie on the same table I drew them on.”
The video precedes the band’s debut EP, “Love and the City 1”, which was born out of their own experiences of growth. Navigating early breakups and growing up in the capital, the six-piece offering features “Alcohol & Cigarettes”, “Settle Down” – and their new track, “The Boy Won’t Grow Up”.
It’s already received support from BBC Radio 1 and Radio X, among others. And, as a band, the fans are already pouring in thanks to a string of recent live performances. They supported alt-rock band Gang of Youths and burgeoning Indie trio Bilk, and are just readying up to play The Great Escape and Y Not Festival this summer.
Plus, for fans far and wide, the five-strong outfit has a little thank-you in store. Alongside the unveiling of the music video, they’re giving away over 300 hand-drawn pictures to celebrate the new release. Each drawing is entirely unique with its own number, and hopeful fans can sign up to be in with the chance of winning on HERE.
