Light and Iridescent Pop from KIDSMOKE — Their Heartache is Reviewed Here

KIDSMOKE are an indie-pop outfit from Wrexham, North Wales.

Formed in 2013, the band play music that’s  inspired by their love of The Smiths and Joy Division.

Kidsmoke - a chromium  voice that hints at sudden gleams in the sunlight...
Kidsmoke – a chrome mix voice hints at sudden fluorescences in the sunlight…

The band have announced that they are going to be putting out “Heartache” the second and final track from their upcoming limited release.

We had a listen:

This shuffling pop-song has a chromium voice that hints at sudden fluorescences in the sunlight .

The guitars are light and iridescent… And the golden chorus is passionate and warming with intimations of abandonment

This song turns tricks of joy
