And The Kid - alt-rock from Croatia

And The Kid

A fascinating combination of acoustics and electric instruments form the backdrop to a spotlight on a diametric vocal, lays at the heart of And The Kind. The music floats like cumulus clouds lulling the audience into a sense of serenity, whilst a visceral lyric, also delivered like a ray of sunshine, showers the ears with reflections and perceptions of the world around.

Compositions which resonate with realities not propaganda, I always find have credibility and of particular enjoyment when approached from surprising angles, so it is of little surprise that I recommend you take a moment out of your day to consider the well worked and delivered reflective of And The Kid.

What hits the sweet-spot is that way the quartet is able to produce a sound which is so redolent of the realities of the world around, a bumptious surface is scarred by inner turmoil, reflecting on so much of what is happening on a world of PR spin.

The song-writing is top-draw and the execution is absolutely in-tune with the ’10s.
