Kids and Chemicals is the collaborative effort of siblings Elizabeth and Patrick Carney. Formed in early 2010, they create a unique brand of beat-driven electronic dance music that draws from a vast and disparate array of influences, from IDM to jazz, hip-hop to soul, rock to ambient. Expect haunting vocals, catchy synth melodies, head-nodding beats, and samples ranging from guitars to wind chimes to hyper-edited pops and buzzes.
Kids and Chemicals' live show is not to be missed, featuring an ever-evolving set including on-the-fly beat editing, high-energy, frenetic vocals, and live visual effects. No two shows are alike; they often throw in unpublished cover tracks and improvisations that make for an undeniably exciting live experience.
