Signed just 12 weeks from inception following a John Parish (PJ Harvey) produced EP; Kill It Kid hit Ryan Hadlock’s (The Gossip, Johnny Flynn) Seattle studio to lay down their début album - later critically appraised across the board (“An Outstanding British Record 9/10” Clash Magazine. XFM New Music Award finalists, alongside The XX & Florence).
Life on the road, coupled with a misguided ‘nu-folk’ tag, pushed the band towards a new, dirtier, blues inspired sound for the follow up album `Feet Fall Heavy`, recorded with producer Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, Brett Anderson) it has been described as ‘raw, inelegant and untainted’.
Singles ‘Pray On Me’ `Heart Rested With You` & `Wild & Wasted Water` proved grittier than anything prior, marrying punishing riffs a la Black Keys to Turpin’s anguished howl - leading Radio 1`s Zane Lowe to describe Kill It Kid as "Exciting and essential, my kind of music". Soon came a 9/10 rating from Classic Rock Magazine ("As well as getting the sound spot on, this album delivers mammoth tunes. Terrifyingly Good") and The Mirrors Gavin Martin branding `Feet Fall Heavy` with 4/5 stars ("An emphatic slice of folk blues Zeppelin would have been proud of. Praise Be”).
Parting company with One Little Indian Records, Kill It Kid`s path crossed with legendary A&R icon Seymour Stein (the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee who inked The Ramones & Madonna amongst others), bonding over a shared love of early Blues the band have spent the summer demo`ing tracks for their third (as yet untitled) album - with long term Warner Records staff Producer Julian Raymond in the production hotseat.
