Alternative act K.I.D has released new music in the form of “Errors”, the first track from their forthcoming full length album for Columbia Records. Despite its upbeat pacing, “Errors” has an underbelly of grit and suburban sadness, with talks of lethargy, medication, failed expectations and frontwoman Kara singing of “watching pornography all day” and ultimately recognizing “there is an error in me.”
“Errors,” which was produced by Mike Crossey of The 1975, Wolf Alice, Arctic Monkeys and Foals infamy, premiered exclusively on Fader and is now available everywhere. K.I.D has also released the official lyric video for “Errors” featuring their trademark gas station plastic bag interspersed with technicolor graphics by Nadia Lee Cohen.
K.I.D is comprised of Bobby and Kara, who met as teenagers buying cigarettes from the only clerk in the neighborhood who never asked for proof of age. Hailing from the Toronto suburb of Mississauga, which they call “Misery-Saga,” they have spent the majority of their lives as best friends and have been writing and performing their self-deprecating songs together for years.
When asked to describe the genesis of “Errors,” Bobby and Kara note that the song is a comment on “…being part of the first ever generation where one in five people are on anti-depressants and pharmacists are the new drug dealers.”
Having helmed their live show over the past two years, opening for drag queens, and performing at Mediterranean restaurants that would later get shut down for violating government health regulations, K.I.D is happily hitting the road for their “Cafetouria” with a full show at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn, New York on Wednesday, October 5th. Tickets are available here.
