North and South collide to create anthemic Alt-Pop. The Geordie front woman’s alluring vocals cut above gritty, pulsating rhythms and powerful harmonies.
Born out of a sweaty south London room, Kid Cupid mix immersive soundscapes with a captivating, live performance.
Kid Cupid have built quite a reputation around London for their mesmerising live set with headline shows at The Garage, Proud Camden and Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen already under their belts. Now, having received support from the likes of 6 Music, BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio, they hope to charm listeners across the UK and beyond with their euphoric fusion of sounds and thought-provoking social commentaries.
The latest release from the band is 'Easy', delving into the harsh realities of addiction and the internal conflicts of self-destruction, Easy juxtaposes a sense of fragility with blissful electro-pop sounds. The band are currently writing their debut EP due to release this year (2018)

From the band:
Between us all our influences are so diverse we draw from things like punk to soul music. At the beginning, we thought this could be an issue but it’s actually been our greatest asset and helps us transcend genres. We actually love drawing inspiration from film scores like Drive!
