Biography

2007 was quite a year for this Dublin foursome.

The first single, "Holding Doors For Strangers" kick started the frenzy which saw KIDIC's independent debut hit the Official Irish Singles Chart at number 26. Having filmed an unforgettable video to accompany the track, with director Richard O'Connor and actress Tara Leniston, the guys set off on a national tour which saw them cover the length of the country, culminating in a 'packed to the rafters' show in Whelans of Wexford Street.

Keeping a steady berth in the Phantom 105.2 FM Top Irish Airplay charts for more than a month, the song went national when Today FM picked it up, and it wasn't long before TG4 and Channel 6 had the video on heavy rotation, with television interviews following.

Further afield, "Holding Doors.." was distributed throughout Australia on the popular "Sounds Like Cafe" compliation, and the video was picked up for a run in the Italian Digi Festival later this year. Indie radio stations in the US, France, and the UK reported some incredible feedback from listeners when the track was aired. As well as this, KIDIC are in discussions with a number of publishing houses which could see "Holding Doors.." go out on Movie and TV soundtracks.

An amazing start for this bunch, who only 12 months ago consolidated their long running "Kid Icarus" project into a fully fledged band.

Not content with resting on their laurels the band are currently recording their debut album in Westland studios. Due to be finished in April/May 2008 and released on multiple formats from mp3 to 5.1 Surrond version for the audiophiles.

Lyrics

Holding Doors For Strangers

Written By: Morgan Brickley, Kidic


You're good, better than average, and it shows,
In your posture/In your pose
In your cheeks and in your bones,
Yeah you're royalty and I know

I got you right where I want you
You got me right where you want me
And my mind starts to process-sell sell sell sell, gimme some, gimme some

You're good, better than average, and it shows,
In your cheeks and in your bones,
In your looks and in your clothes,
Yeah you're royalty and you know

You got me right where you want me
Bound up tight and I can't see,
And my mind starts to process-sell sell sell sell, gimme some, gimme some

And I can't even raise my hand,
I can't even break your stare - you got me now ten thousand leagues apart
And I can't even raise my hand,
I can't even break your stare - you got me now ten thousand leagues apart

You stood, in the doorway I hold wide,
You shook your hair and you smiled,
Men are so obvious she says,
Don't be the fool and don't pretend

I got you right where I want you
You got me right where you want me
And your mind starts to process-sell sex sex sex, gimme some, gimme some

And I can't even raise my hand,
I can't even break your stare - you got me now ten thousand leagues apart
And I can't even raise my hand,
I can't even break your stare - you got me now ten thousand leagues apart

You got me right where you ...
You got me right where you ...
You got me right where you ...

And I can't even raise my hand,
I can't even break your stare - you got me now ten thousand leagues apart
And I can't even raise my hand,
I can't even break your stare - you got me now ten thousand leagues apart
