Kill It Kid

Biography

Signed just 12 weeks from inception following a John Parish (PJ Harvey) produced EP; Kill It Kid hit Ryan Hadlock's (The Gossip, Johnny Flynn) Seattle studio to lay down their début album - later critically appraised across the board ("An Outstanding British Record 9/10" Clash Magazine. XFM New Music Award finalists, alongside The xx & Florence).

Life on the road, coupled with a misguided 'nu-folk' tag, pushed the band towards a new, dirtier, blues inspired sound for the follow up album 'Feet Fall Heavy', recorded with producer Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, Brett Anderson) it has been described as 'raw, inelegant and untainted'.

Singles 'Pray On Me' 'Heart Rested With You' & 'Wild & Wasted Water' proved grittier than anything prior, marrying punishing riffs a la Black Keys to Turpin's anguished howl - leading Radio 1's Zane Lowe to describe Kill It Kid as "Exciting and essential, my kind of music". Soon came a 9/10 rating from Classic Rock Magazine ("As well as getting the sound spot on, this album delivers mammoth tunes. Terrifyingly Good") and The Mirrors Gavin Martin branding 'Feet Fall Heavy' with 4/5 stars ("An emphatic slice of folk blues Zeppelin would have been proud of. Praise Be").

Parting company with One Little Indian Records, Kill It Kid's path crossed with legendary A&R icon Seymour Stein (the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee who inked The Ramones & Madonna amongst others), bonding over a shared love of early Blues the band have spent the summer demo'ing tracks for their third (as yet untitled) album, to be released on the Sire Records (Warner) label.
