Reykjavik Kids Short Info

(In Deutsch unten auch...)

Reykjavik Kids who formed on the banks of Newcastle upon Tyne, England, are tip top duo Paul Tissington (guitar) & Scott Munro (vocals) who blend elements of indie, dance and punk. Reykjavik Kids create soundtracks to dark, memorable, nightlife escapades and their sound is underpinned with lo-fi guitars, cheap synths, and immediate melodies that create a brand of lo-fi indie on edge with nervous energy.

Reykjavik Kids' early demos found their way to boutique London based label Tigre Fair who released their debut eponymous single for Record Store Day 2015 on 12" vinyl and digitally. The single was hailed by blogs (see press below) and in summer 2015 Reykjavik Kids, with full live band, supported LA indie band Happy Hollows on their first UK tour. Their 2nd single 'Moneymaker' was released in March 2016.

Paul and Scott have been busy writing and recording and have an E.P. set for late Spring 2016.
