KID RADIO are a four-piece soulful electronic act based in Melbourne. They express more than just feeling and sound through a collection of heavy beats, catchy chorus cries and brilliant story telling lyrics.
Their distinctive sound is inspired, but not limited to one single genre. They magnify on today's shared themes of love, loss, death, drugs, alcohol and resolutions, and convert them into their very own music movement. Their direction of music is inspiring in itself and has created a natural connection with their listeners through their real and honest expressions.
With the release of their self-titled debut album in July 2015, produced by Count Bounce (TZU, Pez, Ash Grumwald, Sietta, Joelistics), they have achieved a successful reaction with the addition of a nation wide tour.
KID RADIO brings their music to life through their incredible live production of sprawling landscaped synths, keys and incredible addictive beats. With KID RADIO you can always expect visual shows as stunning as their musical talent, video content that tells a story through film, and a digital presence that connects people through a common
but individual journey through time and sound.
True Live began gigging around their hometown of Melbourne regularly playing at local haunts like The Evelyn and Revolver. They very quickly garnered a cult following in Melbourne's live circuit as word spread of their phenomenal energy on stage. They took their show on the road time and time again, selling out gigs nationwide off the back of word of mouth alone. True Live had become the band that you absolutely needed to see. Demand reached boiling point for some recorded material, so later in the year of their formation, they issued their debut release, the highly exalted Mintons EP. The EP's first single, Question This, was an undeniable success, gathering rotation from Triple J and video clip plays on Rage, Channel V and Video Hits.
True Live are a truly unique entity. Since their very first performance in 2005, they have defied categorisation and belonged to a genre all of their own. With each of the band's six prodigal members bringing their own set of influences to the table, the outcome is something unlike anything you're accustomed to hearing.
Formed from a selected group of musicians from Melbourne’s rich improv scene by leader / frontman / producer RHyNO, with the assistance of older, wiser musicians - the young upstart managed to score himself the hands down finest selection of players from some of the more eclectic realms of musical taste. The collective includes late period Miles / Coltrane head with a love for Madlib and Justice, Thai Matus (keyboards) and obsessive bebop violinist Tamil Rogeon. Then there's hip-hop trad jazz DJ / double bassist Tom Tom, rare groove funk drummer Choi and heir to the Blake string linage (3 generations deep of string players) and Nitin Sawney collaborator, Tim Blake.
