And the Kids

 

Recently called one of “the Western Mass. indie scene’s brightest creative lights” by Pitchfork, Northampton, Massachusetts’ And The Kids recently released their debut full-length album, Turn to Each Other (Signature Sounds). Turn to Each Other is more than an album title: it’s a statement of fact for the band, whose bond—as musicians, friends and creative foils—is as tight as they come. The album features 11 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. Taliana Katz made her debut as And The Kids’ bassist at their NPR Tiny Desk Concert, and continues to carry the energy of the album to the stage.
