New Single From Kids on Bridges and Jonathan L Makes His Debut
BroadwayWorld brings you the new Kids on Bridges' single 'Something in the Water'. Liverpool's purveyors of sophisticated electro pop had a huge 2015 that saw them playing alongside the likes of Stevie Wonder, LCD Soundsystem, Beck and my favourite brass band ever - Hot 8!
I'm in the lovely position of being able to present you with the debut single from my really good friend. and award winning radio broadcaster, Jonathan L. After over forty years of introducing new music to listeners in America and later worldwide, Jonathan L has released his own spoken word record with music by Go Satta.
'(Don't Be Afraid) MOVE' is an accomplished and considered record from a man who has lived a remarkable life, if anyone is qualified to ruminate on the complexities of the human condition, it's him.
2016 looks set to be even bigger for the band with upcoming American dates to accompany the news that their music has found a home in a Hollywood film. More details will follow on that as soon as we're able to talk about it. In the meantime, for interviews, live sessions, or anything else, please give me a shout.
Liverpool's Kids on Bridges are Christian Bragg, Daniel Rankin and Andrew Culshaw, a trio of Pop Art terrorists who produce electro likened to the music of Phoenix and MuteMath. The band, who recently supported Beck and New Orleans' brass favourites Hot 8, were the United Kingdom's only representatives to play alongside Stevie Wonder at the Special Olympics in LA.
'Something in the Water' follows the success of Kids on Bridges' last single 'When The Needle Drops Featuring Shea Seager' which charted at number one on Hype Machine. Their remix EP reached number 10 in the UK Dance charts.
Following support slots with the likes of LCD Soundsystem /Soulwax and Friendly fires, as well as working with
New Orleans legend Zigaboo Modeilste of the Meters and Jennie Vee, Kids on Bridges played a string of shows in America where they sold out iconic LA venue The Viper Room and Tipitinas in New Orleans. The band also beat Nile Rodgers and Grammy Winner Ledisi to the honour of remixing a track for INXS' 'Kick 25' album
"Kids On Bridges are not shy of the BIG chorus a will satisfy fans of sophisticated electro-pop as much as lovers of a lad-rock singalong... Phoenix gatecrashing a Depeche Mode party with Daft Punk on the decks"
