Album Review

Following the success of chirpily dark debut single “Average Man” Simple Kid continues to amuse & amaze with the release of his debut album “Simple Kid 1”. Plucked straight from his bed-sit by significant label 2m Recordings “The Kid” has produced a charming record mixing his easy-going writing style with some potent lyrics and interestingly diverse productions.

Music - Simple Kid - Simple Kid 1 - Album Review

Marrying Bob Dylan & Ray Davies with The Super Fury’s & Beck “Simple Kid 1” jaunts from themes of commuter chaos, drugs & sunshine to heart felt tenderness with clear honesty. Covering some serious ground while remaining intact as an album “Simple Kid 1” chimes with acoustic guitars, brass punches, synthesized squelches and even a speak and spell vocal. Although the album doesn’t manage to sustain its mesmerizing standard to the last, this is never-the-less a fantastic debut that defines Simple Kid as the thinking mans pop star with a keen ear for melody. We await his next move with great interest.

8/10
