About Kid Runner:
Within their first year, Kid Runner went from bedroom demos to National TV commercials, and the momentum didn’t stop there. Their huge synth hooks, shout along anthems and energetic live show has landed them opportunities to perform with Capital Cities, The 1975, The Griswolds, X-Ambassadors, Kitten and more! They just played Fashion Meets Music Festival where they shared the stage with artists such as Local Natives, New Found Glory, Cold War Kids, Switchfoot, Circa Survice and more! They played Breakaway Festival in 2013 where they helped hype up the crowd with fellow artists Bassnectar, Kendrick Lamar, and Empire Of The Sun. It’s safe to say that it’s been a pretty awesome start for this up-and-coming alternative pop band.
Nothing about Kid Runner is typical, from their truly collaborative writing process to their live show filled with instrument changes and electronic gems. Cassie Morien from Indie Shuffle Music Blog says “Kid Runner is young — I’m talking right-out-of-the-garage new. But their mastery of synths, lyrics and restraint is unbelievably impressive” and Chris Deville, writer for Stereogum and Columbus Alive! describes Kid Runner as “existing in the same space as Passion Pit” with “nimble and infectious” vocal melodies, while managing to make “huge-sounding shout-along anthems.”
Their second EP, titled ‘Wake Up Now’ is set to be released on November 4th and it’s already gained attention from multiple online media outlets. Think Foster The People meets Passion Pit, but Foster still has a thing for Imagine Dragons and Phoenix. It’s complicated.
