Limbo Kids emerge from the fervent music and arts scene in Oxford with the forthcoming release of their debut EP ‘Wanderlust’ (out November 12th on digital) and have recently been championed as a band to watch out for by Hugo Manuel (Chad Valley, Jonquil).
Limbo Kids is the result of a song-writing partnership between Mark Stephenson & James Hitchman. After spending recent years on separate projects, the duo re-ignited the partnership last year in their self-proclaimed ‘Limbo Loft’, where they recorded 2 well received demo songs – one of which (‘Heartshots’) was chosen as ‘#1 track by an Oxford artist in 2011’ in a local end of year list by promoter Daisy Rodgers.
They combine their love of catchy pop melodies with atmospheric, layered guitar and synths. Groove-based disco and soulful, dreamy emotion are some of the sounds conjured up. The 3 track ‘Wanderlust’ EP has 2 tracks produced by Trophy Wife’s Kit Monteith & Andrew Halford (‘Heartshots’ and ‘Wanderlust’), recorded at Safehouse Studios in Oxford.
The title track also includes a guest appearance by Rose Dagul (Rhosyn) on cello, and Ollie Thomas (ex-Ute) on vocals. The 3rd EP track, the self-produced song ‘Desire’ was recorded in Limbo Loft.
