Candid Kid is an indie band from from Minneapolis, MN. Made of four friends who have been writing, playing and laughing together since 2014, Benjamin Muller, Tanner Uselmann, Cooper Doten and Reese Kling are geared up to take on summer 2017 with their second release, BLUSH. The release party is Thursday, June 8th at the 7th Street Entry, with Jennie Lawless and Wingman filling out the bill. Tickets are still available HERE
The demos of BLUSH piqued Minneapolis engineer and producer Brett Bullion’s (Bad Bad Hats, Low, Halloween Alaska, etc.) interest. Candid Kid entered Bullion’s studio and live tracked nearly everything, adding small embellishments after the majority of the recordings were finished. Simply put, the boys of Candid Kid love to make music and have a damn good time doing it. Tight musicianship, pent up sound, super cool yet chill piano in all the right places (neon), with interesting musical reverb effects and embellishments, unique musical directions/choices were made …all with immaculate production! This is next level music and your growth for Candid Kid it’s honestly really impressive.
Keep an eye out for opener Jenny Lawless – we caught one of her first shows at the Icehouse in February and were quite impressed.
