Kidsmoke Short Info

Kidsmoke are Lance, James, Sophie & Ash. Their shimmering brand of dreamy indie-pop has seen them make waves in their native North Wales.

Their 3rd EP ‘Save Your Sorrow’ was released in June 2017 after having been awarded the Horizons Launchpad Fund from BBC Cymru Wales/Arts Council Wales.

New single ‘Sister Sadness’ was released February 9th and is Kidsmoke’s most popular single to-date, receiving backing on the airwaves from BBC6 Music’s Steve Lamacq, Maryanne Hobbs & Guy Garvey.

The band’s song ‘Take me to the River’ is featured on season 4 of the Charlie Brooker’s ‘Black Mirror’, in an episode titled ‘Arkangel’, directed by Jodie Foster.

The four-piece note The Smiths, The Beatles, Wild Nothing and Real Estate among their influences and have garnered a reputation for producing well-crafted, indie-pop nuggets with a dynamic, well polished live-presence to boot.

“Delightfully melancholy” – Steve Lamacq, BBC6 Music

“Kidsmoke continue to make a name for themselves as purveyors of uplifting indie” – Line of Best Fit

“If you class yourself as a die-hard fan of indie music, Welsh band Kidsmoke will make for a very exciting proposition” – Indie Shuffle

“I bloody love Kidsmoke. No fuss or stupid melodrama, just great, great songs.” – Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales
