Rising Artist - Kids of 88

For New Zealand duo Jordan Arts and Sam McCarthy their neo-new wave sound is about to take the world by storm. Kids of 88 became one of the most talked about artists to come from this year's SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, this two man band is making a big splash in music right now. As we said in our QUICK SPINS review of their EP "they are taking pages from slick 80’s guidebooks and giving it their own spin – think The Killers and The Bravery from the beginning of their careers, taking an old genre and making it their own," and indeed they are. Their catchy hooks and synth beats have seen them gone on to remix Funeral Party, Cobra Starship and others. This duo is poised to be massive and with spring in the air, they are the perfect escape into the nice weather.
