Kid Wave began in 2013 as the music project of Swedish singer/songwriter Lea Emmery, who left her hometown of Norrk√∂ping in 2011, when she was just a teenager. In the UK, the released a handful of tracks under the Kid Wave banner, which eventually led to the power pop outfit releasing a four-song EP and well-reviewed LP debut, Wanderlust, whose earworms such as “I’m Trying To Break Your Heart” have received airtime on LA’s hip KCRW station. Now relocated to Los Angeles, Kid Wave has opened this spring for The Shins and their latest single, “Everything Changes,” was co-produced and mixed by Lewis Pesacov (Best Coast, Fidlar, Deap Vally). You can give it a spin for yourself below.

This past Saturday, Kid Wave headlined an evening to remember assembled by collective Play Like A Girl that included violinist/soul singer Sudan Archives, Hydro Kitten, and Aalok. It was a testament to the depth of talent and variety that PLAG has become known for and instantly produced fervent Kid Wave fans out of us.
