Limbo Kids emerge from the fervent music and arts scene in Oxford with the forthcoming release of their debut EP ‘Wanderlust’ (out November 12th – digital release)
Limbo Kids is the result of a song-writing partnership between Mark Stephenson & James Hitchman. After spending recent years on separate projects, the duo re-ignited the partnership last year in their self-proclaimed ‘Limbo Loft’, where they recorded 2 well received demo songs – one of which (‘Heartshots’) was chosen as ‘#1 track by an Oxford artist in 2011’ in a local end of year list by promoter Daisy Rodgers.
Limbo Kids combine their love of catchy pop melodies with atmospheric, layered guitar and synths. Groove-baseddisco and soulful, dreamy emotion are some of the sounds conjured up. The 3 track ‘Wanderlust’ EP has 2 tracks produced by Trophy Wife’s Kit Monteith & Andrew Halford (‘Heartshots’ and ‘Wanderlust’), recorded at Safehouse Studios in Oxford. The title track also includes a guest appearance by Rose Dagul (Rhosyn) on cello, and Ollie Thomas (ex-Ute) on vocals. The 3rd EP track, the self-produced song ‘Desire’ was recorded in Limbo Loft. Limbo Kids have recently been championed as a band to watch out for by Hugo Manuel (Chad Valley, Jonquil).
