Go Deep With Synth-Pop Sixpiece Kid Astray on New Single ‘Diver’
The song is the latest advance track from the group's upcoming LP, 'Home Before the Dark'
A sextet from Oslo, Norway, Kid Astray have released a run of singles since forming a couple years ago that haven proven them among Scandinavia’s finest synth-pop revivalists. The latest exhibit in the group’s case is new advance track “Diver,” another shimmering blast of airy keys, rumbling bass, and soaring vocals. Over a 6/8 shuffle, the band plunges you into the briny deep, insisting “Getting further from the shore / Let’s go floating in the endless flood.” It’s not quite a Sebastian-the-Crab-level endorsement, but it certainly does make the landlocked seem like suckers.
