Huw's BBC Introducing Discovery: Spotlight Kid - Sugar Pills


This week’s tip is another one forwarded to us by Dean Jackson at BBC Introducing in the East MidlandsSpotlight Kid are a band from just outside Nottingham, whose new single Sugar Pills is a fine example of their lush shoegazey sound, with thick layers of guitar and synth wrapped in warm distortion and reverb.

Spotlight Kid have played live alongside The Joy Formidable, and their work is produced by Todd Howe who’s worked with The Boxer Rebellion, so they’re already in good company for the release of their forthcoming album 10,000 Hours which comes on St Marie Records this September.

You can see Spotlight Kid play live in Leicester on Friday 7th July at The Cookie Jar or listen from the comfort of your own speakers by grabbing my free download from the BBC Radio 1 website now.
