Kid Kasio has done it again! The guy is a one-man SynthPop machine!
It amazes me that Nathan Cooper (Kids’ alter ego) can churn out sweetly written and slickly produced tunes with clever videos with no label backing (yet)!
His latest track is ‘The Reason’, pure 80’s Pop with a riff so infectious I had been humming for weeks before the song was released based on a 30 second studio clip! Kid Kasio’s knack is writing 80’s inspired songs without falling into any (not one single one) of the clichés so often , and easily, slipped into by other ElectroPop artists. Kids’ music doesn’t try to sound 80’s, it just naturally is. Amazing.
Also amazing is the video for ‘The Reason’ which works on a similar level to the music. a Bruno Brooks introduced Top Of The Pops video (complete with TOTP title graphics!) which shows not just a vague fashionable 80’s nostalgia but a deep understanding of the music and visuals of the time. Noting more can be said about this video but ‘genius’.
I suggest you all go ‘like’ Kid Kasio on Facebook right now!
