|And The Kids Friends Share Lovers Limited Vinyl LP
Recently called one of "the Western Mass. indie scene's brightest creative lights" by Pitchfork, Northampton, Massachusetts' And The Kids sophomore release 'Friends Share Lovers' is poised to be a breakout album. The bond between the four band members as musicians, friends and creative foils — is as tight as they come. The album features 10 tracks full of ringing guitars from Hannah Mohan, knotty rhythms from drummer Rebecca Lasaponaro and bold accents from synthesizers and percussion by Megan Miller. Together, they create "apocalyptic pop", a dizzying stop-start ride with lush, intricate soundscapes that frame Mohan's lively lead vocals. NPR Music recently raved, "Guitarist Hannah Mohan's striking vocals rival the vibrato and boldness of Siouxsie Sioux... [And The Kids] make music that's both fearless and entertaining." An ongoing struggle with border issues for Miller, a Canadian citizen, initiated the addition of bassist Taliana Katz to the touring ensemble. Katz made her debut as part of the band at their NPR Tiny Desk Concert and continues to carry the energy of the album to the stage.
