"Mary PopKids season opening party"

True gigastars of pop, funk, excellent indie, refined electronica and beyond with lots of guests on the greatest night of this autumn featuring the season-opening party of the Mary Popkids with lots of dancing, shouting, laughing and kissing. - A38

"Punnany Massif and Mary PopKids at Sziget 2014"

Punnany Massif and Mary PopKids, two Hungarian acts some of you have surely heard of, are the latest additions to the Sziget 2014 lineup - Sziget News

""That's what the future of music might sound like""

First listen and a positive review of Mary PopKids' first LP, that came out in April, 2014. - Index (Hungary's most popular online news site)

"Premier of Mary PopKids' Nightdrive Music Video"

"Mary PopKids had the best Hungarian music video in 2012, raising the bar, so expectations for their new video was very high. Luckily they didn't dissapoint. Here's another video worthy of "Music Video of The Year" in 2013...." - Lángoló Gitárok (Hungary's premier music blog)

"Songs I`m Falling In Love With This Month"

Hungarian pop-duo with an incredibly awesome song. I wish I checked them out at Strand festival but they were clashing with FOB. - Buzznet

"Very Mary Pop From Hungary"

We really wonder why Mary PopKids didn’t go huge worldwide yet, because their music is a clever mix of electronic pop, catchy beats and strong guitars, that makes us clap our hands and sing along very badly! They already proved how catchy their music is at the Sziget festival this year, when thousands of people came to their show, shouted a lot and also did a funny dance for the song "Step to the left". If you love music full of energy, check out their latest album “The Blue Inside" and give it a try! - Music You Never Heard Of

"Mary Popkids - Nightdrive remixes"

High flying indie pop band Mary Popkids recently released their single "Nightdrive" along with an epic video, and now the guys came up with the idea to release a remix EP of the track with electronic music remixes, courtesy of their friends and collaborators. Let's see!

You can find an electronica rework by We Plants are Happy Plants, a glitchier approach by iamyank, the usually massive bass-filled Drop The Cheese remix, a deeper version by Jabocca, the dub remix of DJ Slow and the usually unusual remix of Tropiic.

What is way too cool as well that the first 100 snatchers get free downloads of the remixes, so you better hurry up! - Budapest Bonkers

"Mary PopKids' Nightdrive music video premier"

Nightdriving under the influence is never recommended. Especially if you've had a few too many Heart Breakers spiked with a hallucinatory drug.

If you're intrigued, then check the BTS for a look at how they pulled off the Blade Runner meets Drive vibe... - Video Static

Following the release of their EP At The Bar in 2010, and single Mosoly in 2012, winning "Best Music Video" of the year from Viva/MTV Hungary, the band released their single Nightdrive in 2013, receiving critical- and public acclaim for the refined sound and music video, directed by Emil goodman. Mary PopKids first LP „The Blue Inside” was released in April 2014, and became no. 1. on iTunes and Deezer in Hungary and is getting heavy airplay on radios and music TVs. 2014 highlights include opening for The Strypes and Arctic Monkeys in July on the VOLT festival, and playing Sziget Festival’s main stage opening for Bastille.
