Kid Cupid have their ducks in a row on driving new single "Better"

15 May 2018, 12:30 | Written by Pip Williams

"Better" is the first taste of London-based Kid Cupid's forthcoming debut EP, and its rich guitar-pop is as good a statement of intent as any.

With appropriately cherubic vocals set to a broody, driving backdrop, "Better" is the welcome follow-up to last year's "Easy", the latter of which is a similarly articulate pop track dressed up in an altogether hazier feel. "Better" is more direct: the sound of a band with their ducks in a row, ready to take on the world right out of the starting blocks. It sets a forthright tone for the Unholy Ceremony EP, with silky smooth vocals cascading over its rolling drums and noodling guitars .

With a show at Brixton's Ritzy later this month, Kid Cupid are already making waves in an indie-pop sphere that previously seemed oversaturated. Somehow they find something new to bring to the table, offering an urgency and authenticity that are bound to get them noticed.

Unholy Ceremony is out on 18 June.
