Delving deep into the realms of alternative rock, the rising West-London talent tenaciously shares his own message of accepting the current sentiment of universal chaos.
Propelled onto the scene only last year, Kid Brunswick (aka Harry James) is an artist who basks in his own intrepidity, harbouring a melancholic yet enthusiastic essence that portrays a creative degree far beyond his years. Born in the urban streets of West London, the singer-songwriter has embodied the cathartic nature of music since his first single ‘Fxck You Cause You’re The One’ graced our ears back in 2019.
Unafraid to dive headfirst into his own imperfections, the end product is a fascinatingly dynamic voyage into the fragmented mind, guided by a mystical recipe of shaded guitars, clamorously cadenced drums and James’ matter-of-fact lyricism. The mark of his constant evolution came from the first single of this year ‘Penny’, signalling a change from a commandingly ironic torch song to a more passive lament. Perfectly traversing the line between dream-pop and grunge, his musicianship carries something for everybody to savour, most notably the relatability that surges like a state of flux throughout his discography.
Following on from the success of the Jacob Manson mixed ‘4AM’, Brunswick released the mesmerising ‘Bipolar Rhapsody’ in late November, as well as recently teasing a cryptic video on Instagram for an upcoming project, shot on one of London’s iconic tube carriages. Despite the limitations that the pandemic have placed on society, Kid Brunswick and his melancholic portfolio of pop-punk inspired bangers have truly had their cake and eaten it; if there was ever a space that needed to be watched, this was it.
