Liverpool's Kids on Bridges are Christian Bragg, Daniel Rankin and Andrew Culshaw, a trio of Pop Art terrorists who produce electro likened to the music of Phoenix and MuteMath. The band, who recently supported Beck and New Orleans' brass favourites Hot 8, were the United Kingdom's only representatives to play alongside Stevie Wonder at the Special Olympics in LA.
'Something in the Water' follows the success of Kids on Bridges' last single 'When The Needle Drops Featuring Shea Seager' which charted at number one on Hype Machine. Their remix EP reached number 10 in the UK Dance charts.
Following support slots with the likes of LCD Soundsystem /Soulwax and Friendly fires, as well as working with
New Orleans legend Zigaboo Modeilste of the Meters and Jennie Vee, Kids on Bridges played a string of shows in America where they sold out iconic LA venue The Viper Room and Tipitinas in New Orleans. The band also beat Nile Rodgers and Grammy Winner Ledisi to the honour of remixing a track for INXS' 'Kick 25' album
"Kids On Bridges are not shy of the BIG chorus a will satisfy fans of sophisticated electro-pop as much as lovers of a lad-rock singalong... Phoenix gatecrashing a Depeche Mode party with Daft Punk on the decks
Mike Walsh, Head of Music, Radio X
"So fresh, melodically stunning."
Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music
"Think Phoenix and Depeche Mode"
Scott Mills, BBC Radio 1
"Kids on Bridges bring an energy to electronic music that has been largely missing as of late. Their songs get strong listener response and their live shows are well played. Got to appreciate their lyrics as well!"

Glass Giants. If you are a fan of Don Broco or Mallory Knox then these guys will be right up your street.
I am hoping you will consider their latest single "Up All Night" for airplay on your station! It is an absolute party anthem that delivers three minutes of some of the best Alt Rock the UK has to offer at the moment.
With origins from all over the Cynon Valley, Glass Giants are a Pop-Rock band from South Wales. They are building a following throughout the UK, which has seen them gain prestigious airplay on BBC Radio Wales, Kerrang Radio and on over 100 regional stations. Their video/single "D.A.N.C.E" also received screen-time on Kerrang TV.
The guys have recently supported two of the world's hottest new rock bands Against The Current and Sunset Sons and are promoting their newest single "Up All Night" produced by the incredible Romesh Dodangoda (Lower Than Atlantis, Twin Atlantic).
The band are embarking on tour next week with some incredible talent from around the UK. It would mean a lot if you could share the news of the tour whether this be through social media share or news post (Tour poster below).

SISTERAY have hit 2016 running. This new single from the London four piece, currently rewriting the indie guitar rule book, has already had one of it's tracks picked up by Phil Taggart on BBC Radio One and following series of #guerilla pop-up gigs around the capital they have now set up their own night Welcome To The Monkey House, the first one in Camden was a sell-out success, next one @ The Victoria Dalston on Feb 11th.
The single tracks were recorded on Lightship95 with producer Rory Attwell (Test-Icicles) at the helm.
Sisteray are fronted by songwriters Niall Rowan (vocals) and Dan Connelly (guitar). Originally the band formed out of school by Daniel and his brother but when the time for decisions about the future arrived. Dan chose to stick with his guitar, song writing and rock and roll while his brother decided to leave and go to university. Sibling rivalry doesn't come into it, this is just the beginning of the story.
Dan recently found himself in national media/TV (BBC / ITV / Independent ) speaking out against his local MP in Walthamstow Stella Creasy, voting for airstrikes in Syria. He was described on screen as musician and activist, though he's not sure he would describe himself as an activist. For the record Dan and Stella have agreed to disagree.
Whitestar who are based in London, England.
Hailing from South East London, Whitestar have been creating quite a buzz on the live music scene over a period of time.
The band have recently released their second album Giant Murmur which is now available to purchase via iTunes and all other major distributors.
Described as having themes that focus on the darker side of love, death and imagination, you can find out more details on Whitestar by visiting their website www.facebook.com/whitestarband
