"The Awe Kids This just got sent to me from Ed Wilder Resident at One Party State @ Barfly and Club NME"

The Awe Kids This just got sent to me from Ed Wilder Resident at One Party State @ Barfly and Club NME

I fucking love this band so much already – is it the Frenchophile production ? (shades of Alan Braxe, Thomas Bangalter and DJ Falcon and other Roule Records heroes)

Or is it the way lead singer Elspeth Rose ( Best name for a chanteuse ever) pines and lulls you into a honeycombed pop opium den of delight singing about the classic theme of ennui and love lost on the streets of London.

Go see them at The Enterprise for ace promoters Bloody Awful Poetry this Friday 15th Jan 2010 scroll down on the myspace page and buy a ticket from the out and about section

Also fingers crossed they will play the Barfly on the 6th Feb with Hoodlums

You may remember, about this time last year we featured a band called The Awe Kids – a fledgling three-piece with killer tracks, huge potential and what seemed to be a constantly revolving line-up. 12 months down the line, these kids have come a long way. Debut single Stuck in London is available to download from 24 Nov on iTunes, and in honour of the occasion, the band will be playing a special launch show at The Workshop in Hoxton. Joining them will be another new lady-band, Milk.

"Stuck in London" was digitally released on 24th November 2010 onto iTunes, Spotify and Amazon.

The Awe Kids EP is currently being produced and will be released in 2012



Elspeth Rose (lead vocals) and Jon Wild (real name!) (guitarist) are the co-writers of The Awe Kids Music. They came together a few years ago, recorded some tracks and found a few of their mates to be in their band. They practiced like mad, played a few gigs and the word spread....

The Awe Kids are a fun bunch of people and can often be found hanging around Camden where they put on their night called "Down With The Kids" . Taking place in venues such as The Lock Tavern (Camden) and The Workshop (Shoreditch). They have also headlined venues such as The Barfly (Camden), Water Rats (Kings Cross) and The Underbelly (Hoxton Square).

Recently Elspeth Rose travelled around California USA where she recorded some new "Awe Kids" material with producer Jack Kennedy.

They have been compared to bands such as The Cranberries, Saint Etienne, and more recently it has been said that Elspeth has a certain "Lana del Rey" quality. Maybe its her videos that she also makes of herself on their youtube page....
