This band has no press


Still working on that hot first release.



Autumn Kid’s music is simultaneously exhilarating, seductive and dismantling. Like nighttime, staring down into the river from a bridge that’s too high. Like that extra drink after a night spent worrying about everything. Like hanging onto the gauzy edge of fitful dreams before another morning of the same old routine. Autumn Kid nurtures a small flame of hope to warm the melancholy in its bones; at once inviting and depressing. Psych-kissed basement gaze anthems sit tolerantly next to deadened post-punk, drawn from its shell by a Fender’s irresistible shimmer.

Singer and guitarist Eric Moen met drummer Forrest Fritz-Storhaug in the fertile institutional confines of Minneapolis’ windowless South High. Through mutual connections in the astral realm, they linked with distant relative Nigel Highlands, who owes his dominant and resolute style of bass to a lifetime’s worth of training in the martial arts. The band recorded and released the Lullabies EP in the fall of 2015 with the help of Good Doom’s Tony Schurbon. The EP’s immense gravitational pull drew Lions & Creators' guitarist Tanner Groehler into the fold.

The resulting chemistry formed one hell of a record. Groehler and Moen’s guitars intertwine like the veins on a bruise, nodding in and out of consciousness while Highlands and Fritz-Storhaug steer towards the horizon. “Heaven” and “Pregnant” present optimistic melody that succumbs to doubt, while “When I’m Cold” cauterizes the wound.
