Sour Kix are a young, exciting and energetic band made up of siblings Louis (guitar) 16, Ollie (drums) 15, Amelie (vocals) 12, and their best mate Ed (bass) 17. Having formed 2013, they made a name for themselves playing local festivals and gigs around their home town of Woking. Since then, they have gone from strength to strength and have been asked to play larger festivals and venues around the country and even performed live on Chris Evans' TFI Friday.
The band bring and energetic mix of pop/rock to their performances and always please the crowd with their selection of well-crafted original numbers along with throwing in a selection of high octane covers which they have undoubtedly put their own spin on! The band have just recorded and released their own EP 'Wildest Dreams' which along with their new material, Real Deal, Bad Reputation and Play Around, includes their first release Wonderful and bonus remix of Play Around.
"Although we are all young we are passionate about performing and strive to play to the highest standard, which is rare and unique among bands our age. Since being together as a band, we have written multiple songs which resulted in an EP, followed by an EP launch gig at the Boileroom in Guildford, which we organised by ourselves."
"We have been fortunate enough to play at over 100 gigs and festivals, headlining evenings and supporting other acts, however our personal favourite achievement was playing Satisfaction live on TFI Friday to Ronnie Wood . We have also helped raise over £8,000.00 for local charities such as Children In Need, Stroke Association and WWF who we are music ambassadors for."
The band draw their inspiration from other dynamic and energetic bands such as Paramore, Against The Current, We Are The In Crowd and Tonight Alive, although they also look further back to bands such as McFly and Green Day.
"We just love anything that gets the crowd up and rocking", something that they hope will mould their music for years to come."
The band are currently writing a new EP which they will hopefully release in 2018.
