Sour Kix are an exciting indie pop/rock band from Woking, made up of siblings Louis, Ollie and Amelie, alongside best mates, Ed and Andries. An energetic mix of melting genres explodes from their performances, fully immersing the audience with a selection of well crafted songs in their set.
Their main influences are Against The Current, Yonaka and Paramore, although they like to create and offer their own style, expressing their raw and edgy vibe.
They have been requested to play at numerous festivals around the country, playing on the main stage and supporting some amazing bands, including Kaiser Chiefs, Jessie J, The Vamps, Lucy Spraggan, Scouting for Girls and Sound of The Sirens. One of their highlights was when they were asked to play live on Channel 4’s TFI Friday, playing one of the Rolling Stones tracks ‘Satisfaction’ in front of Ronnie Wood.
They released their first EP “Wildest Dreams” in 2015 and since then have been writing, recording and releasing new material, performing their music at some iconic venues including The Half Moon Putney, The Water Rats and Camden Assembly.
They are proud ambassadors for WWF Earth Hour and help support many charities such as Make a Wish, where they were asked to create a set list and perform for a young girl, who because of her special needs, had never been able to attend a festival before and Make a Wish made it happen, alongside the BBC. They have also worked with and supported Dogs on the Streets, PDSA, BBC CIN, Shooting Star Chase, War Child, Teenage Cancer Trust, Action Against Hunger, Just a Drop & many more.
The band have recently appeared on the front cover of The Musicians Union Handbook 2018/19 whilst recording and creating a music video, for one of their latest tracks ‘Footprints’.
They were recently asked to create a jingle for a podcast, supporting a well known charity, ‘Dogs on the Streets’ (DOTS) which was very well received and has regular listeners on a monthly basis.
They are quite at home performing live sessions on local radio stations across the South East of England and their tracks have regular air play, which is great.
2019 is looking to be as busy as ever with many gigs and festivals already in the diary, a recording session which they won at BBC Introducing Live, as well as writing new music together and releasing some new and exciting tracks which they can’t wait to share.
