"Editor's Review"

This distinct vocal style melds phrases around riffs and chord changes with a phonetic awareness not often found in rock. But that's not all; the band jumps from fuel-injected arena rock to Whitesnake-esque love ballads with the ease and agility of a genuine hair band. -

Feeling a bit camera shy


System Kid is a three piece rock band playing music for the thinking class. Assembled near Los Angeles, their sound features driving guitar and stirring piano over a syncopated groove. The influence of U2 and Radiohead translate to strong melodies and intelligent song structure. Jared Anderson delivers lyrics drawn from a complex personal history in a voice set apart. Bassist Evan Troxel's credentials in architecture and academia supply composition while Bart Welt's skill with design brings focus to his drumming. For a band with catchy songs such as the joyful, "Birthday Suit," System Kid's roots go deep. Take a listen and be moved.
