Kid Hyena - Electro Alt Hop
“Sounds like Joe Strummer on a pure morning watching the ‘Twin Peaks’ series after a night out with Manu Chao in a dystopian Barcelona”
Videos Representing Live Sound
“Not many bands these days, if any at all take tap dance and throw it into a spell binding mix of alt rock bass, synth textures, old school ghetto blaster inspired beats & catchy tunes, but that is exactly what Kid Hyena do”
A musical resistance formed on the backstreets of Barcelona ‘Kid Hyena’ embrace the urban landscape of the city with crafted electronic beats & synth melodies. This they combine with an alchemy of sound featuring tap & body percussion, melodic 'alt rock' infused bass and heartfelt voices sung in English and Spanish.
Both band members are keen lyricists with an eye for writing about social and cultural themes and their words are integral to the bands make up and trajectory.
Influenced by old school folk & hip hop sounds, alternative rock and experimental music the band have just recently finished an exploratory period of intensive recording where they released three albums over two and a half years.
They began with 2017’s acoustic statement ‘Rebel Heart Club’ and followed up in 2018 with musical collage ‘B Side Fantasy'.
Just recently the band have completed their third album 'Gravitate' which showcases their new 'Electro Alt Hop' sound.
As ever the band cease to remain static and continue to look for new innovative ways forward with their music. They've several projects currently on the go including the acoustic 'Soapbox 21', a musical graphic novel, a new record label and new material for an as yet untitled album being recorded.
Now based in the UK in the Colchester area where they have had radio coverage on amongst others BBC Essex & BBC Introducing, the band are on the hunt for gigs!
