Track Of The Day: Kid Wave – ‘Twenty Four’

‘Twenty-Four’ is the new single from London-via-Sweden outfit Kid Wave. Evolving from the dusty, grungy shoegaze from debut Wanderlust, ‘Twenty-Four’ has a shimmery pop vibe. Throughout the track, Lea Emmery tiptoes between disillusionment with youth and its accompanying quandaries. Opening lyric “tell my friends I’m going to leave this town/because I’ve been looking for a sign” speaks for Lea’s time spent in LA while writing and recording this song and the song continues as lyrics are crooned over the bold guitar-strewn instrumental. The contrast between ‘Twenty-Four’s danceable beat and the soft, melodically emotional vocals from Lea mark the track out as a gleaming alt-pop delight. 

Produced by Lewis Pesacov (Best Coast, FIDLAR), and released via Heavenly, the (fingers crossed) second album from Kid Wave is sure to be another spirited slice of deceptively reflective pop.

 

Catch Kid Wave at Birthdays, London, on 26th January.
