I’m starting to really like Kill it Kid. The band met in Bath Spa University in 2008 and have released two albums and a number of exciting singles such as Run and Burst its Banks, they have received respectable ratings like 8/10 and 9/10 from NME and Clash magazine.
The four-piece band currently include Chris Turpin (Guitar, vocals), Stephanie Ward (piano, vocals), Marc Jones (drums), and Dom Kozubie (bass).
They have been associated with White Stripes and Arcade Fire and are widely recognized as one of the best new bands of 2009.
I suppose they’re one of those bands that if you listen to one of their songs, you’re instantly hooked to them, already disappearing down a rabbit hole of guitar-driven, grunge infused folk.
They’re pretty unique, too. They’re not one-of-those-bands-who-completely-fail-and-end-up-seeing-their-CD-in-Poundland like so many other bands who I can’t even remember the names of.
Who couldn’t like a band with influences like Nirvana, Johnny Cash, Tom Waits and Bob Dylan?!
