LA Indie Outfit Kid Bloom Release Simmering New Single "EVRWNDR"
Kid Bloom have a presence about them — they’re laidback, sure, but it’s like they glow, like there’s this glittering aura surrounding them. Each release from the Los Angeles alt-indie band is a total dream as the guys seamlessly fuse psych-rock elements with that classic LA flavor. It’s no surprise, then, that Kid Bloom have released yet another hypnotic effort.
The band’s newest single “EVRWNDR” slows things down and sexes things up. "’EVRWNDR’ is inspired by my hypersensitivity to emotions and how I sometimes paralyze myself with my own feelings as if those feelings are coming from somewhere else,” lead singer Lennon Kloser tells The Music Mermaid. Despite the vulnerable subject matter, “EVRWNDR” doesn’t necessarily sound revealing or tentative. Like all of Kid Bloom’s work, it’s sure of itself. It’s confident.
“EVRWNDR” opens in a sea of stark warbles that grow in a steady crescendo before a powerful drum introduction kicks things off for real. Lennon’s voice is drunk with his signature resignation, a voice that drips out of his mouth. Around him, an unstoppable arrangement of deep blooming synth and wooden percussive tones swell. There’s not a lot of rest or quiet to “EVRWNDR” because it’s constantly moving with neon rhythms, but there’s a sort of simmering quality to it — it’s slinking and tender, given the late-night 80s treatment, even though it’s so full of power.
