Stats for this track
"Normally, sounding like another artist could be seen as a set back, lack of imagination, plagiarism even. But in the case of Chris Turpin lead singer with Kill it Kid, a five piece blues rock, dark pop, indie folk frenzy from Bath, sounding like Anthony Hegarty’s near double is a veritable gift.
This, their debut single, is an impressive start. Managing to blend commanding, emotive instrumentation with heart felt lyrics and Turpin’s, equally frail and powerful voice, this record delves deeper and asks more from you than your standard indie fayre.
Starting with Turpin’s voice, alone, he is gradually joined by strings, soft bass and a sparse drum beat emphasizing the words ‘It started when you came home, it wasn’t what you said darlin’, it was your tone’ and with rising strings and Turpin’s pleas and with some well timed thumps of a bass drum, Kill it Kid take us on their journey. A song about break ups, wounded pride, hurting and being hurt, this song is full of pain, but with a resounding stress placed upon hope, this is a song about never giving up, to never stop fighting. And Chris Turpin has got one hell of a voice."
