From lo-fi rock to electronic blues, No Money Kids defies norms and takes us on an electric road trip. Shabby motels, flashing neon lights, memories in the rear-view mirror, the duo rushes at high speed on a forgotten road hurtling down at night, the horizon in cinemascope. Inspired as much by The Kills, Beck or Sparklehorse, as by Junior Kimbrough and Robert Johnson, the Kids sculpt an addictive electro-blues, haunting and painful indie-pop tracks crossed by a hoarse and vibrant rock, alternating dizzying ballads and garage anthems, with surly guitars and electronic arrangements
No gimmicky arrangements or bling-bling concepts, but biting rock, the No Money Kids punctuate it in their choruses: they won't make any manners. Shuffle blues, furious guitars and electro pads, lo-fi decor and vintage aesthetics, the Kids cut into the bone, in a frontal, animal way, and polish their nuggets with sweat. To each his family jewels: in 1963, during a gala given in the presence of Queen Elizabeth, John Lennon provoked the assistance: "The first rows, you can content yourself with shaking your jewels." With No Money Kids, the rombières would have strangled themselves with it. Their gold rush only lasted two years. Born from a meeting in the studio in 2013, the Parisian duo, composed of Félix Matschulat (guitar-vocals) and JM Pelatan (bass-machines-samples), does not dawdle and released a first EP "Old Man" in March 2014. The electric duo wins the final of many springboards (Paris Jeune Talents, Give Me Five, Tremplin Solydays/RATP, Play It Indie...), catches the eye of the media then scours the halls and festivals (Blues-sur- Seine, Aurora Montreal, Culture Aux Quais...). At the end of the year, the group surrounds itself with professional partners with the turner Nueva Onda, the publisher Alter-K and the label Roy Music.
The Kids drink by the bottle, not pinard or bourgeois bubbles, but a good old peat whisky. It's necessary that it pickles, like their first album "I don't trust you", in which they outline social misery: exclusion ("Government"), homosexuality ("Man"), marginality ("Vagabond Train") or old age ("Old Man"). Kids generation Larry Clark. So many rock anthems that have seduced "music supervisors" in France and abroad (Puma, the "Night Shift" series, the film "Baby, Baby, Baby!"...). The proof that Kids are not always dirty kids. Source: infoconcert
