Norway’s KID ASTRAY has released a new single.
The 5 piece indie pop band – a group of twenty-year-old friends school of Sandvika, near Oslo
share a taste for post-punk rock and especially The Wombats.
They have adapted their influences ranging from psychedelic rock to alternative dance and indietronica to make pure, euphoric pop…
Their latest single [shared below] ‘Fall To My Knees’ sustains their auspicious natural ability by blending an expansive experience with an established electro-pop impulse.
The band said, “ it is about a gig we played in Berlin in the spring of 2015. We were having a really tough time, battling some undue negativity in the media and in the people around us. We just wanted to quit, go to sleep, and not play this showcase at a club. But that show just blew up and made us remember why in the world we’re so determined to keep on doing this...”
We had a listen :
The vocal accompaniment is an awesome blur with blinking moments amidst huge flames of power.
Benjamin’s lead voice is electromagnetic in intensity, tuned and clear, but does not destructively interfere with the range of sounds bundled tight against it.
And the participation of Elizabeth Wu is another high point [and an indication of when this song was recorded.]
There are high levels of energy and amazing chemical bonds in this song of multiple reflections and radiant explosions.
The band plans to launch an E.P. Later in the year.
