New Music | Spotlight Kids
Spotlight Kid are a noise-pop fuzzed out band from the UK who have just released their third full length album entitled “Ten Thousand Hours.” Their sound is firmly within the shoe-gaze school of rock with feedback loops, backwards guitars and overdubbed vocals. Not that there is anything wrong with that. There is a growing body of work quoting this genre and some, like Spotlight Kids are adding brilliance to the mix.
“Spotlight Kid’s music features mixtures of Shoegaze, Krautrock and 90s Psychedelia. Fuzzy guitars wrapped in layers of reverb and boy/girl vocals subtly building on the layered walls of distortion. In the last year Spotlight Kid have supported The Joy Formidable on their UK sell out tour, been chosen by BBC introducing to play at this year’s Glastonbury and have been play-listed on Radio 1 as well as numerous plays on 6music and XFM.”
