BIGkids video for Superhero just up!
'Superhero' - out June 17th
debut headline show at
The Ballyhoo (formerly The Bowery)
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 Party, Lee Festival, Standon Calling, Bestival, Nass Festival, and Y-Not.
Last month saw Stella McCartney pick BIGkids’ track 'Drum in Your Chest' to promote her exclusive Olympics Collection which was revealed at the Tower of London on 22nd March. See the official video featuring the track below.
Since posting their DIY video for 'Drum In Your Chest' online (http://www.youtube.com/bigkidsmusic), BIGkids have garnered a barrage of attention across music sites and tastemaker blogs alike with the likes of Dazed Digital, i-D, Nylon and NME all showing their support. 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!
