Kid Wave have shared their new single ‘Wonderlust’. Produced by Dan Austin (Doves, Cherry Ghost) as part of the band’s album sessions at Eve Studio in Stockport, it is their third single following the release of All I Want & Gloom in 2014. The single is accompanied by a tripped-out performance video shot in Hackney Wick and directed by Steve Glashier who also worked on the band’s video for All I Want.
“Wonderlust” is taken from the band’s, as yet unannounced, debut album which is due for release in the early summer of 2015.
Having last year played dates with Childhood, The Wytches, TOY and The Orwells, and most recently appeared at the Heavenly 25 weekend in Hebden Bridge, the band have announced their own run of headline dates in March. They also play a free acoustic in-store at Rough Trade West on the day of release.
Initially starting out in 2011 as a solo project for Lea Emmery after moving to London from the East coast of Sweden, by 2013 the line-up had been augmented by the addition of Serra Patale (originally from Perth Australia) on drums, Harry Deacon on bass and Mattias Batt (who hails from the same town in Sweden as Lea) on guitar.
