Future_Future: “Landscapes of beautiful piano, multi-layered guitars and uplifting vocal melodies in combination with intricate track sequencing and vivid artwork – Kid Metropolis venture to create an immeasurable musical universe...”
Kid Metropolis is born again. A New Music breathes uncertainty and anticipation. We've laid down the blueprint for the future, (a future) that is transparent and hopeful. We awake with vengeance and desire flowing through our veins, Kid Metropolis is a Ying to your malevolent Yang! From the depths of merciless larceny and sleep-deprived nights – we're back to pound two-fisted justice into the hearts of evildoers everywhere. The road back to the glaring lights is a clearer one. Warm hands and tasteful footwear, a Kid Metropolis like no other.
Rarely does a band emerge from obscurity to make a lasting impression on a growing and loyal fan base; Kid Metropolis has accomplished just that. Over the last 5 years, Kid Metropolis has been hard at work creating a distinct sound - a sound that is described as accessible, yet tense; melancholic, yet uplifting. A Kid Metropolis live show is like no other: triumphant, with sonic interludes connecting each song to the next – and the result can be intoxicating. The band has performed at many venues around Toronto such as the Legendary Horseshoe Tavern, the Reverb and the Opera House. They were selected to perform at the 2006 & 2007 NXNE Musical Festival, headlining a showcase at the Kathedral, and making an appearance on the 2007 NXNE compilation. Kid Metropolis has also enjoyed play on various college radio stations and was chosen as the featured artist on Y108’s renowned independent music show, ‘Get Hammered!’. Kid Metropolis is also creating interest for new fans in Montreal, having frequented venues such as the Green Room, Main Hall and Café Campus.
A Kid Metropolis live show is like no other: triumphant, with sonic interludes connecting each song to the next – and the result can be intoxicating. Their genre is a blend of alt-rock, new wave, and classic rock influenced from a wide variety of acts such as the Beatles and Radiohead to Michael Jackson and George Michael. Their debut album “A Blueprint for Modern Life”, produced by Ashton Price of Morph Productions (who has worked with Juno™ Nominee Kazzer), is equipped with landscapes of beautiful piano, multi-layered guitars and uplifting vocal melodies in combination with intricate track sequencing and vivid artwork tells its audience a much more profound story. The songs are abrupt but timeless; the production imaginary, allowing songs to breathe and be heard.
The much anticipated follow-up record titled “Future, Future”, released in stores on November 28, 2008 has seen Kid Metropolis take a more organic approach to recording; utilizing vintage equipment from the renowned “Chemical Sound Recording Studios” in Toronto and giving the new album a more ‘live’ feel to it. Kid Metropolis continues with their unorthodox approach to song-writing and arrangement, but it works. Time will only tell, though it seems as though Kid Metropolis is poised to elevate to the next level.
