When Kid Runner was here for the Bunbury festival back in June, the band cranked out a sterling set made up of songs from its most recent EP, Wake Up Now, and its eponymous 2013 debut, plus a handful of new tracks, all of which was dialed up to festival-strength. The quintet was beyond impressive in its ability to embrace restraint and then explode like a Rozzi shell, immediately debunking the myth that Electro Pop bands lack diversity or dynamism. There is a definite streak of energetic Indie Rock that defines Kid Runner as a good deal more than your standard-issue Synth Pop outfit.
You’ll Dig It If You Dig: Muse and Passion Pit make s’mores in the microwave and pass the synth around the video of the campfire on the flat screen. (BB)
