While most modern pop seems to center around topics of love or the high life, K.I.D’s latest effort is an anthem for the highly-medicated and depressed. Fittingly, K.I.D stands for “kids in despair.” The Canadian duo’s new Poster Child EP is full of emotional, energetic, meaningful verses and chorus hooks that simply tell it how it is.
Produced by Mike Crossey (Arctic Monkeys, The 1975, Wolf Alice), the four-track EP is a mix of the pair’s animated and eclectic synth-pop and edgy alt-rock sound. Poster Child juxtaposes glossy and bouncy electro-pop beats against brutally candid lyrics. The uplifting production draws you in before the songs reveals a darker side.
Poster Child features “Boy,” a suburban love anthem, and “I Cannot Sleep At Night,” a relatable, brooding banger. The EP also includes previously released tracks, “Errors” and “Taker.” Watch Nadia Lee Cohen’s directed video for “Errors” below:
