Kid Wave is made up of a good looking bunch – Lea Emmery (vocals & guitar), Harry Deacon (bass), Serra Petale (drums) and Mattias Bhatt (guitar), to be precise. They’ve  just released the video for their shimmering new single “Honey”, bursting with low vocals, jazzy guitar riffs and catchy melodies – it’s the prefect track to soundtrack the sunsets of summer. The video, directed by collaborator Steve Glashier, was shot at the bands recent sold out headline show at London’s Sebright Arms. Whilst 2014 saw Kid Wave playing shows with The Wytches, TOY, The Orwells and Childhood amongst others, 2015 brings their full debut album “Wonderlust”, charted for release later this year. In the meantime though, take a look at their new video and waste away hours listening to the playlist they have curated exclusively for Wonderland.
