Human Drum Machine KID BE KID unveils Truly A Life Goal But No Ice Cream Album releases ‘Move’ Single & Video

Multitalented musician KID BE KID released her new concept album, Truly A Life Goal But No Ice Cream, on the 9th of June via Fun In The Church. The project is available on vinyl, CD, and digital platforms and features the already-released singles ‘News Feed’ and ‘Naked Times’. On the project, listeners will find the song ‘Move’, which was premiered by CLASH Magazine, shared along with a mesmerising video.

Throughout her journey, KID BE KID has earned favourable support from industry publications such as Complex UK, NOTION Mag, Jazzwise UK, Pure Grain Audio, and Exit Through Sound among others. Her music received spins on BBC Radio 1Xtra with Jamz Supernova, Reprezent Radio 107.3FM’s NYSWRLD show, National Irish Radio station RTÉ 2FM, and the German station Deutschlandfunk Kultur.

Dripping with sugary vocals, Truly A Life Goal But No Ice Cream features 10 conformity-defying records topped with a sprinkle of punchy beats and a swirl of crunchy bass. Ready? Grab a heavy double scoop of KID BE KID’s fun-filled album. 

Originating from Berlin, Germany, pianist, singer, and human beatbox KID BE KID was raised by professional musicians. Her parents only listened to classical music, so she recorded her favourite songs off the radio and explored her taste in secrecy. Later, she learned to play the piano but disliked staring at the sheet music. 

At 19, KID BE KID found freedom from the confines through Jazz improvisation, which led her to experiment with aspects of Neo Soul, Hip Hop, and Pop. Recently, she sang on several scores for the 2022 Netflix film Rumspringa. Drawing influence from Little Simz, Frank Ocean, and Kaytranada, her music brings together chosen elements of H.E.R and Frank Ocean as well as live-performance acts Jacob Collier and DOMi & JD BECK.
