AN INTERVIEW WITH GARAGE-POP DUO K.I.D

We catch up with K.I.D to chat about their new single "Errors", plans for the future, and what it was like to work on set with our very own Nadia Lee Cohen.

So, let's start off with something easy, what are you doing right this second?

Tending to this interview so we can get back to our Sandra Bullock movie marathon. You?

Give us an intro for your fellow band member as if nobody else was listening...

Bobby on Kara: 90's movie protagonist meets early 2000's fashion crisis.

Kara on Bobby: An early 2000's movie protagonist meets a 90's fashion crisis.

A quick insight into your lives, was music always the path you saw yourselves on?

Not really, it was just the unforeseeable end-point of a long, dusty, urine-reaking trail.

What advice would you give the younger version of yourself if you could?

A daily B-12 vitamin will help your mood swings.

K.I.D's latest track "errors" has been described as "a sobering anthem for self-defeatists everywhere" (NME).what were your own inspirations behind it?

Self defeatists, everywhere. lol. It's hopefully a song, that, if it becomes popular, will shed light on just how universal the feeling of self-dissatisfaction is.

Refreshingly you incorporate everyday lives and real every day people into your latest video, including Kara's aunt Maureen! why?

We draw inspiration from the mundane, and romanticize the mediocrity of real life. We focus on the realistic as opposed to the idealistic which is usually where pop artists have their eye.

"Errors" was directed by Nadia Lee Cohen, widely appreciated for her saturated dreamscape visuals, what was it like to work with her?

We were kindred spirits right away, we sat at lunch for hours discussing our obsessions with the banal and how inspiring tv-dinner trays are. Her commitment to some of our strangest ideas was always unwavering, and that's an energy we've craved around us for a while now. She's also got the best style and the sharpest mind ever, so not a bad person to get to hang out with for a few days.

What is next for K.I.D, what do we have to look forward to?

We're about to talk our room-mate into driving to the store to buy us ginger ale and cigs. We also might put out a concept album about our perpetual lethargy next year. Stay tuned.
