Artist Bio
Black KidsBlack Kids hail from Jacksonville, Florida and comprise of brother and sister Reggie and Ali Youngblood, Dawn Watley, Owen Holmes and Kevin Snow.After enjoying a wave of interest via their MySpace last summer, they began working with Quest Management (Bjork, Arcade Fire) in September 2007 and signed to Almost Gold Recordings in November.This deal coincided with the band offering up their Wizard of Ahhhs EP as a free download via a dedicated website. This EP consisted of the bands' demo recordings of "Hit the Heartbrakes," "I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance with You," "Hurricane Jane" and "I've Underestimated My Charm (Again)."2008 has seen the band included in the BBC Sounds Poll for 2008 and tipped as Ones to Watch by the NME (amongst others). They have enjoyed continued touring including headlining a Vice Tour with Ipso Facto and Friendly Fires, support tours with Kate Nash and Sons & Daughters, and sold out shows at London's Water Rats and two ICA headline dates -- all before releasing a single.Black Kids' debut album was recorded in London by Bernard Butler. Their first single "I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance with You" is making soundwaves everywhere. It's been playlisted on Radio 1, XFM and Virgin Radio and picking up plays on Radio 2 and 6 Music.Performances on Later...with Jools Holland and T4 are in the bag along with an interview for Freshly Squeezed. The video has been playlisted on MTV2 Spanking New, NME TV, E4 Music and Q.

Music Format Compact Disc
Observer Music Monthly ...pleasingly random...One minute they're new romantics or dour indie kids, then, before youve had a chance to draw breath, they're apeing the Ronettes.
Q Magazine ...Youngblood writes terrific, instantly memorable pop songs, their fashionable new-wave cool rubbing against an urgent, almost disco undertow.
Slant Magazine Black Kids merits your attention, and Partie Traumatic is a confident, fun debut.
The Phoenix ...teenage yearning couldn't hope for a much better vehicle than their pouting power pop.
Urb Black Kids' conviction and raw talent has made for a record that far outshines a majority of their blog brethren.
