LISTEN: ‘BETTER’ – KID CUPID
London-based Kid Cupid are now set to release their debut EP Unholy Ceremony, out on 18th June 2018. Listen to first single ‘Better,’ below:
Based around conversations you’d have with a friend in pain, the EP is filled with everything you’d want to say to them during a time of need. As opening track ‘Low’ touches on the theme of codependency with twinkling emotion, ‘Cold Body’ is a powerful outcry for answers when hard times seem to control us, whilst brooding EP closer ‘Burn’ concludes the collection with dark, glitchy defiance.
First single Better, however, is a celebratory song in the form of a lush, cinematic soundscape. Filled with the band’s trademark whirring hooks, tribal beats and the silky smooth, soulful vocals of Laura Shaw, it oozes a blissful, impassioned splendour.
