Kidsmoke [+]

Free before 9pm // £4 thereafter.

Free all night with a student card or Telford’s membership.

Kidsmoke’s shimmering brand of dreamy indie-pop has seen them make waves in their native North Wales. With a sync-feature on Charlie Brooker’s Netflix series Black Mirror under their belts, they burst into 2018 with single Sister Sadness (named one of Steve Lamacq’s ‘6Music Recommends’ tracks of the year), were featured as The Sunday Times’ ‘Breaking Act’, supported Gaz Coombes (formerly of Supergrass)and were invited by Robert Smith (The Cure) to play his Meltdown Festival in support of The Joy Formidable.

The band have spent the summer in the studio with long-time producer Russ Hayes, working on their forthcoming debut album. The lead single Rising Sun marks the start of a campaign that the band have been eager to get underway, with the album taking shape for release in early 2019. For Rising Sun, they took a trip out to sunny West Kirby to record with Domino Records artist and for The Coral guitarist Bill Ryder-Jones – the track is due for release 2nd Nov 2018.

In October 2018, Kidsmoke head out to Western Canada with Wrexham’s FOCUS Wales Festival to showcase at Breakout West Festival, where they will play to a host of international delegates and North American industry professionals. Speaking of the band’s trip, Andy Jones (FOCUS Wales co-founder and music booker) said: “It’s great to see Kidsmoke making this important step in their career, and we’re really pleased we can play our part in their journey”.

“Their songs to date are like exquisite, detail-rich pastoral pop miniatures, all lovestruck or lovelorn lyrics, perfect chord progressions, dovetailing harmonies and jingle-jangling guitars.” – The Sunday Times

“Delightfully melancholy” – Steve Lamacq, BBC6 Music

“Kidsmoke continue to make a name for themselves as purveyors of uplifting indie” – Line of Best Fit

“If you class yourself as a die-hard fan of indie music, Welsh band Kidsmoke will make for a very exciting proposition” – Indie Shuffle

“I bloody love Kidsmoke. No fuss or stupid melodrama, just great, great songs.” – Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales
