After a string of low-key London shows and the release of their widely acclaimed debut single 'Drum in Your Chest', the buzz around DIY Camden duo BIGkids continues on a fast upward trajectory. Today they announce their brand new single 'Superhero' - released on June 17th. They also announce their first ever headline show - at The Ballyhoo (formerly The Bowery on New Oxford St) in London on May 24th

Driven by floor pounding drums, off-kilter lo-fi guitar samples and a rib-cage shaking bass riff, Superhero oozes youthful determination and uplifting exuberance. Combining Rosie and Ben’s impassioned vocal delivery with their no-holds barred mashup of a plethora of different musical styles and textures, the song exudes the feeling of long-awaited summer euphoria and looks set to be a sure-fire festival hit. 

The headline show at The Ballyhoo will follow confirmed performances at this year’s Camden Crawl on May 5th / 6th and The Great Escape Festival in Brighton on May 12th, before BIGkids hit the festival season in full with slots lined up at Secret Garden PartyLee FestivalStandon CallingBestivalNass Festival, and Y-Not

Having also been tipped by the likes of the Guardian, Independent, Evening Standard, and Artrocker, the excitement is infectious and BIGkids are heading towards the festival season as one of the must see new bands of the summer!

THE VIDEO FOR 'SUPERHERO' IS HERE!!

Directed by 19yr old Billy Boyd Cape, here are a few words from him...


"When I was 14 I knew Ben Hudson as my pop-star neighbour. I never thought that 5 years later I'd be directing his latest music video...


Ben and Rosie asked me if I'd be interested in making them a video for their new band, BIGkids. I jumped at the chance, it’s not something I thought twice about. After all, I am still just a student at film school. This was an opportunity which I thought I'd be begging for in about a decade. BIGkids is exactly what I love about music. It's music that makes you want to jump, shout and dance.


The whole video was made with a fun, childlike aesthetic: young crew working with young actors. We had two of the most lively, enthusiastic and hilarious child stars: Felix Light and MJ Binns, embodying everything silly and serious in BIGkids"


Rosie & Ben have just announced their first headline show at The Ballyhoo (formerly The Bowery) on May 24th - just by Tottenham Court Road - let me know if you'd like to come down! Otherwise, you can catch them at a ton of festivals this Summer!
