A lit­tle bit of Aussie soul on the slopes

Mt Hotham Falls Creek - - FRONT PAGE -

AF­TER launch­ing their self-ti­tled de­but al­bum, Aus­tralian band Kid Ra­dio are head­ing to the snow this Au­gust as part of their Aus­tralian and Euro­pean tour.

The four-piece soul­ful elec­tronic act will be ap­pear­ing at The Man in Falls Creek on Satur­day, Au­gust 8, for a one night only per­for­mance.

The Mel­bourne based band mem­bers are Dy­lan Smith and Mar­cus Ross, who have been writ­ing to­gether for over a decade, drum­mer Chad Blaster and synth and dou­ble bass player Thom Butt.

The al­bum, Kid Ra­dio was writ­ten on an acous­tic guitar and has a col­lec­tion of heavy beats, catchy cho­rus cries and ex­cep­tional pro­duc­tion qual­ity.

Pro­duced by Count Bounce, lead singer Dy­lan said the al­bum looks at themes of love, break ups, death, drugs and al­co­hol.

“When the al­bum was cre­ated we were all go­ing through some­thing dra­matic, I lost my fa­ther to sui­cide, Mar­cus was deal­ing with a heavy break up,” he said.

“Mak­ing this al­bum was a great way to vent our feel­ings.

“We feel that there are lots of peo­ple that can re­late to the themes on our al­bum.”

Any­one at­tend­ing the per­for­mance can ex­pect an ex­tremely vis­ual show, video con­tent that tells a story through film and a dig­i­tal pres­ence that con­nects peo­ple through a com­mon but in­di­vid­ual jour­ney through time and sound.
