"...a melodic dark pop track that exhibits the infinite complexities of Kid's sonic range."
"...a haunting fusion of sounds, resulting in a truly unique, cinematic creation." - Gigslutz
Multi-instrumentalist Cadence Kid aka Jason Turbin's new single The Darkness is out now via My Music Mind - just in time for Halloween. You can purchase the single on Bandcamp now.
The video for the single premiered on Gigslutz and is also available to watch on Cadence Kid's YouTube channel.
The single originally premiered on Earmilk and is available to stream via Cadence Kid's Soundcloud page now.
Jason has teamed up once again with his Grammy award winning brother, producer Cassidy Turbin (Beck, Bat for Lashes, Thurston Moore), with the track also featuring guest vocalist Amber Quintero (Stone Throw Records). The Darkness is a macabre, melodic synth-infused track, influenced by elements of classic hip hop with a twist of modern electro-pop thrown in for good measure; conjuring similarities to artists such as Metronomy and M83.
The Darkness is the follow up to Cadence Kid’s critically acclaimed single Hold On Me, which was featured on Billboard’s Top 50 Viral Playlist as well as Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist. Since his childhood, Jason has performed lead roles in musicals such as Les Miserables as well as orchestrating for renowned prog-metal band Dream Theater and, most recently, the upcoming movie Ouija 2. Cadence Kid has also already received praise from various online publications including IDOL Magazine, With Guitars and Crack In The Road to name but a few.
Cadence Kid is a whirlwind of musical talent with a keen ear for an undeniably catchy beat, as well as an ability to turn his hand to various genres and art forms within the industry. The Darkness further emphasises this fact, showcasing his burgeoning talents in the process, and will serve as a perfect end to 2016.
The Darkness by Cadence Kid is out now via My Music Mind and is available to buy on Bandcamp now.
"...intricate folk-inspired melodies and a sweeping, raw emotion..."

Australian indie-rockers Animal House have released their quirky new video for latest single Domino, taken from the energy-fuelled forthcoming EP Sorry, released on 18th November 2016.
The video premiered on A Music Blog, Yea? and is also available to watch on Animal House's YouTube channel.
The audio for the single premiered on Gigslutz and you can also stream the track via the band's Soundcloud page.
Having already received critical acclaim for their single English Girls, Animal House’s new EP is filled with witty lyrical storytelling, racing riffs and infectious choruses. With its undeniably catchy, high-energy garage-infused sound, reminiscent of the likes of The Strokes and The Raconteurs, Sorry oozes a welcome tongue-in-cheek attitude.
Animal House explains that Sorry is an “apology to our parents, friends, past employers who put their faith in us to lead a sweet and comfortable life in Aus and instead we’ve blown all that on a shot at making music”. Remembering the hedonistic adventures they’ve had whilst making music, the band admit they’re actually ‘not sorry’, and revel in the fun they’ve been having in the UK on each vibrant and uptempo track.
Finally settled in the UK, Animal House have already supported the likes of Courtney Barnett, Surfer Blood and Drenge to name a few. They have also received praise from the likes of BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac, BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq and Sean Keaveny, NME, DIY and Clash. They now hope to continue charming listeners with their “stupid garage pop songs” on Sorry.
