International boy/girl four piece Kid Wave are back with a new song, Best Friend, and a new album, Wonderlust, due out soon on Heavenly Recordings. Now residing in London, singer/songwriter Lea Emmery and guitarist Mattias Bhatt hail from the south-east coast of Sweden, while drummer Serra Petale hails from Perth, Australia and bassist Harry Deacon was a friend of a friend.
Last year saw the band playing with the likes of TOY, The Orwells, Childhood and more recently with Jimi Goodwin at the Heavenly 25 weekend in Hebden Bridge, and its that delicious sort of noisy shoegaze/grunge that the band deal heavily in. Best Friend is full of soaring guitar lines, and driving drums, as over the top there’s this echo soaked backing to whats essentially slacker shoegaze. But very catchy, completely loveable slacker shoegaze.
And what could be better than that?
