Liverpool’s Kids on Bridges are Christian Bragg, Daniel Rankin and Andrew Culshaw, a trio of Pop Art terrorists who produce electro likened to the music of Phoenix and MuteMath. The band, who recently supported Beck and New Orleans’ brass favourites Hot 8, were the United Kingdom’s only representatives to play alongside Stevie Wonder at the Special Olympics in LA.
‘Something in the Water’ follows the success of Kids on Bridges’ last single ‘When The Needle Drops Featuring Shea Seager’ which charted at number one on Hype Machine. Their remix EP reached number 10 in the UK Dance charts.
Following support slots with the likes of LCD Soundsystem /Soulwax and Friendly Fires, as well as working with
New Orleans legend Zigaboo Modeilste of the Meters and Jennie Vee, Kids on Bridges played a string of shows in America where they sold out iconic LA venue The Viper Room and Tipitinas in New Orleans. The band also beat Nile Rodgers and Grammy Winner Ledisi to the honour of remixing a track for INXS’ ‘Kick 25’ album
“Kids On Bridges are not shy of the BIG chorus and will satisfy fans of sophisticated electro-pop as much as lovers of a lad-rock singalong… Phoenix gatecrashing a Depeche Mode party with Daft Punk on the decks” Mike Walsh, Head of Music, Radio X
“So fresh, melodically stunning.” Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music
“Think Phoenix and Depeche Mode” Scott Mills, BBC Radio 1
“Kids on Bridges bring an energy to electronic music that has been largely missing as of late. Their songs get strong listener response and their live shows are well played. Got to appreciate their lyrics as well!” Bruce Ravid Indie 103
