When we last caught up with the intrepid inter-galactical pop visionaries Kidz in Space it was some time ago. The trio had landed on earth in early 2009 after a chance encounter somewhere beyond the edge of this galaxy, and after discovery a mutual interest in hooks, lasers and digital drums they vowed to fuse their talents in music.
Within six months their first creation Episode 001: Chasing Hayley had been conceived, honed and released. They had sensed that Planet Earth was a location likely to be receptive to their astral synthesisers and futuristic rap. That intuition was proven correct when the single ‘Downtime’ managed to infiltrate the top 20 charts of their new home territory, New Zealand, an isolated island nation where their activities were less likely to be detected by the agencies tasked with thwarting their sound. That single has since gone Gold, and also featured on the Michael Jordan NBA 2K11 game.
After the release of a second volley from the collection entitled ‘Lose My Cool’, they received notice that their true alien identities were dangerously close to discovery, and thus returned to ground, plotting a triumphant, dazzling re-emergence. That time is nearly upon us, and the invaders unleashed the single Ghost on an unsuspecting public at the end of 2010. To further indicate the borderlessness of their mission they enlisted the talents of Dan Black - a ‘wonky’ singer from London, England - alongside remixes by the mysterious True Tiger dubstep crew, and fruity New Yorker Sammy Bananas.
The package generated acclaim from as far away as the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States, while in New Zealand they have garnered praise and fans for their high energy live show throughout the summer of 2010-2011. All this has helped exponentially raise expectations and anticipation for their debut album, also entitled Ghost, which has now been scheduled for delivery to their public in May 2011 via MTC, the agency tasked with handling the space travelers’ musical output around the world. Consider this a warning.
