First Look: Kids On Bridges – Something In The Water
Liverpool’s Kids On Bridges have just released the video for their new single “Something in the Water”. The song itself is a power-pop manifesto declaring the true talent that is all things indie which will absolutely cause more than one listen in order to get that message. What impresses me about the video is how professional and, for lack of a better word, slick the production is. This is a testament as to how far any musician, artist, or band will go in order to get their music heard and, believe me, Kids On Bridges is worth the listen.
About Kids On Bridges
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
