Black Kids. Really? Yup. that’s their name, the one thing I can really say about these guys is how ridiculously Irony-filled their name is, with there being one and a half people in the band who are actually black..(they’re siblings).
Founded in 2006 in Jacksonville Florida, they performed only in their home city, eventually making their breakout performance at the Athens Popfest in Athens Georgia in 2007. They then blew up and began showing up in music coverage everywhere, releasing their EP, got them favorable reviews and scored them a “new best music” commendation.
Either way, these guys hit my radar while I was searching related bands on last.fm And I instantly loved their album’s silly lyrics and upbeat tracks. (and the backing vocals by the two lovely ladies in the band.)
They have style, and their music is definetly fun to listen and dance to, all the like.
