Kids On Bridges is one of the top breaking acts in electronic pop. They're from the U.K. - Liverpool - and releasing their first single on their new album this week (available only in the U.K. on May 26). The band's eclectic sound has drawn comparison to The Killers, Daft Punk, Phoenix and Depeche Mode.
This Spring KIDS ON BRIDGES unleash new album KIDOLOGY in the UK through Wall of Sound. A vibrant mix of Electro Voodoo & Cyber Rock, the album is packed with a heavyweight cast of friends and guests including New Orleans Funk Legend ZIGABOO MODELISTE on Drums, Poet CHUCK PERKINS as well as Contributions From Dr John, Shea Seger and BAFTA award winner Jim Howick (Hellboy/Peep Show) also makes a cameo appearance.
K.O.Bʼs eclectic sound of rock, and electro funk has seen them compared to everyone from synthpop band The Killers and Phoenix to Daft Punk and Depeche Mode. The singles as well as the album features production by Chemical Brothers collaborator STEVE DUB, and was mastered at the famous Exchange Studios by MIKE MARSH (Depeche Mode, Phoenix, Primal Scream). Kids on Bridgesʼ radio-ready melody- heavy music bears scant resemblance to the big beat pioneers.
Kidology was created in a busy period for the band in Europe and the U.S.A remixing artists such as INXS for the Kick 25 Box set beating Nile Rodgers to the mix of Calling all Nations, and Grammy winner Ledisi. They recently finished mixes for The Meters drummer Zigaboo Modeliste and UK Band The Chevin.
The Bands Debut single was featured on The Inbetweeners and made single of week by XFM's John Kennedy and Clint Boon. During the same exciting year Radio 1ʼs Scott Mills named Kids On Bridges a Band to watch and XFM 's Head of Music Mike Walsh tipped them the same compliment in Music Week.
The band smashed a sold out show at The Viper Room in L.A after legendary radio station KROQ picked up ʻThis Rockʼ; an anthemic electro rock track endorsed by Jazz Colman of Killing Joke (it features a heavy sample of the track ʻThe Eightiesʼ. As well as headline shows in New Orleans they played the UK Festival circuit supporting Soulwax, Friendly Fires, Goldfrapp, Hot 8 Brass Band, OMD and Howard Jones
Roll Deepʼs J2K joined the band on the single Anywhere But The Middle which was featured in iTunes Best Of selection.
