Uncle Kid makes dark, broody, understated trip hop with spoken word. His debut EP, ‘Indistinct Chatter’ grabbed the attention of BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson who describes him as an “unsettling Scottish artist” and hailed his first single, ‘Supermarket Sweep’ as “a song for our times”. Meanwhile, BBC Scotland’s Vic Galloway has drawn comparisons to Massive Attack and Arab Strap. He’s also earned many plaudits among prominent online blogs and internet radio, with Total Rock describing his second single ‘Lamplig’ as “Wonderful, haunted folk charm and trip hop, a truly unique sound”.
Edinburgh based Uncle Kid, who produces all his own material, delivers spoken word throughout. His EP ‘Indistinct Chatter’ deals with themes ranging from broken family and mental turmoil, to binge drinking, politics, and a general sense of alienation in the world.
His recent collaboration with producer SkinnyBoy Tunes, ‘As Above So Below’, was featured on the Marc Riley show on 6 Music where it was described as ‘evocative poetry’. He will be following this up with the August release of his latest single and music video – his take on the Louis Armstrong classic, What A Wonderful World.
