Biography

It's all about the music. No matter how the technology changes, we're all still just kids tuning in to our favourite tracks. KID RADIO is going to take you on a journey. And it's going to be awesome.

DYLAN SMITH is your narrator, sharing through song, how sound shapes life through time, like a monsoon to a pebble. Having it’s way with the world from the past to beyond the future.

The experience is built on the beats, chords and hooks of MARCUS ROSS & CHAD BLASTER, manipulating each note to coerce you along the journey. And now – KID RADIO begins.

You realize you joined for the familiarity of The XX, SBTRKT, Disclosure, The Presets and Miike Snow, but stayed for something different – the deep, soulful vocals of your narrator throws a unique flavour into KID RADIO jutting through noise to make time for sound.


After dedicating over a year to writing and perfecting their stunning live show, Melbourne’s own soulful electronic trio Kid Radio are proud to announce the release of their new single, ‘Young Heart’. To celebrate, the artists will play alongside buzz collective Jakubi at The Toff In Town (VIC) for a huge Cup Eve celebration on Monday 3 November, as well as a headline show at The Workers Club (VIC) on Saturday 22 November.

The three-piece are also excited to announce that they have signed a publishing deal with industry heavyweights Native Tongue.

‘Young Heart’ is an exciting vortex of dance rhythms and soulful vocals, all brought to life by the band’s incredible live production. The story is carried along by Dylan Smith’s heartfelt narration, which glides over a sprawling landscape of synths, keys and one hell of an addictive beat. Indeed, it’s their unique twist of urban lyricism and dance sensibilities that make the three-piece a breath of fresh air.  

Lyrics

Far East

Written By: Kid Radio

Chorus
Brother, I'm getting tired
Don't drag me under
My minds away, and there I wonder,
If I am free there to discover
Far east.

Where do we go when we,
Can't hide or fight inside our dreams,
No place is safe from harm,
We lock all the doors,
We've lost all the calm,
Sometimes I need to rest,
Release all the tension bumping of my chest,
I chase that salt and breeze,
Cast a line feel it biting from the edge of the sea

Chorus
Brother, I'm getting tired
Don't drag me under
My minds away, and there I wonder,
If I am free there to discover
Far east

Well I'm not rich,
But I count my stars,
I thank the universe for my beauty scars,
I don't need to run,
I'll walk slow to the east,
I'll never be scared to fight that hungry beast,
I might sound crazy,
But I found my baby,
She talks she speaks to me,
Talk of times we made love,
And we just felt free.

Rap
It's like I've over powered shadows with light beams,
Escaping to a secret place where I can see bright days,
Offshore breezes, sand dunes and reef breaks,
Coopers red and green stacked up in the brief case,
On that far east, I might discover some peace,
Away from debt collectors and these troublesome streets, I'm free,
Just for a second, get lost in the moment,
Where there's no problem solving, or no battling opponents

Outro
Chorus

Super Villain

Written By: Kid Radio

INTRO
I'm about to lose control
I'm about to lose control

I'm about to lose control
Super Villain taking hold

Super Super
Super Super
Super Super

VERSE
Well it's the same old story
And it's getting kind of boring
I'm tired of the suit, tired of the lies
I'm tired of the same song calling
Am I being dignified
Are my actions justified
I'm done with the cape, I'm done with the day
Can someone take my pain away
Is this what you want from me
You got me dropping to my knees
I'm sick of hearing baby please
Don't be this way, don't be so mean
Can I tell you something raw
Before you walk yourself out the door
I don't wanna be a super hero no more

CHORUS
She don't know
She don't know
I'm about to lose control
I'm about to lose control

She don't know
She don't know
I'm about to lose control
Super Villain taking hold

VERSE
I'm flying high, but I'm feeling low
Lost in space
I'm out there all alone
She got to know
I said she got to know
My love for her remains
But my fate will never change
I'm flying in a world of my own
I'm trapped in space with no way to get home
Believing all the bullshit that I told you before
Makes me never wanna see ya when I walk through the door
It's never gonna be the way we lived it before
So I don't wanna be your super hero no more

CHORUS

BRIDGE
I don't wanna be
I don't wanna be
I don't wanna be no more
I don't wanna be, no, no, no

Wah a oh oh oh.
Wah a oh oh oh.
Wah a oh oh oh.
Yeah

CHORUS x2
