Kids On Bridges (K.O.B.) is the brainchild of Christian Bragg, who has made it his vocation to produce dirty filthy electro-pop music. The band’s eclectic sound of rock on a synth-pop trip has drawn comparison with The Killers, Daft Punk, Phoenix and Depeche Mode. The singles and forthcoming album feature production by The Chemical Brothers collaborator Steve Dub, and K.O.B’s radio-ready and melody-heavy sound pays homage to the big beat pioneers. Xfm UK Music Director Mike Walsh is a fan of the music as he was quoted saying, “Kids On Bridges are not shy of the BIG chorus and their debut album is full of tunes that will satisfy fans of sophisticated electro-pop as much as lovers of a lad-rock sing-a-long.” Kid On Bridges recently supported electronic legends O.M.D at the reopening of Eric’s in Liverpool and were guests at the legendary Tipitina’s in New Orleans after being heard on WOZ (the radio station in the HBO show “Treme”). Their track “Y Don’t U” was featured in the UK Television show, “The INbetweeners” and they’ve been hard at work remixing the likes of 2012 Grammy winner Ledisi, Lenny Kravitz, UK buzz act The Chevin and Australia’s All Mankind. Besides focusing on their upcoming album, This Is Widescreen, Kids On Bridges just wrapped up remixes for INXS’ “Calling All Nations.” The mix refreshes the 1988 vocals of Michael Hutchence and gives it a 2012 feel, without alienating the true INXS sound. Fans will be very happy with both the original remix and the Dance Radio Edit remix.
