Black Kids are coming...

Four months ago, I pointed y’all to a free EP download from a quirky young pop band out of Jacksonville, Florida... Black Kids.

The British music press drooled all over them, and the Kids have been gigging their butts off in England ever since, opening for Kate Nash on her tour.

Now Black Kids are coming home.

From late April through mid May, the Kids will do their first North American club tour, hitting spots from Boston to Baltimore, from Denver to Detroit, from Seattle to Salt Lake City. And then it’s back to England for the summer.

Black Kids are living the rock ’n’ roll dream. And they seem like such nice young people, playing such happy music. Go, Black Kids, go!

And look... their first music video came out last week. The single (“I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance With You”) drops April 7.

That was entertaining! Now for the snark:

1) He sounds just like Robert Smith
2) What's up with the children's choirs/cheerleader thing these days? Even the new Radiohead has a song with children's choir!
3) Go! Teamesque?

But seriously, they're fun. Thanks for showing them off.

I like them, I think.

I think I'm feeling this. Definitely reminds me of one of my favorites, The Cure.

Good sound. No doubt that the Smiths are a big influence for them.

Not sure how a kid from Florida ends up fronting a bad that sounds like the Cure.

I hope they make it, we need more variety like this. I'm tired of the the same old stuff on the radio these days.

Pinoy new wave singers rule.

Which of them are BLACK? LOL The song is reminiscent of the Cure most def. It's got that vibe and is equally addictive.
