The Little Kicks are a band from Aberdeen, Scotland.
Combining soaring vocal harmonies and infectious guitar hooks with the distinctive warmth of analogue synthesizers, The Little Kicks create an exciting melody-driven sound, as engaging on record as it is live.
Singles from The Little Kicks’ last LP "Shake Off Your Troubles" (released March 2017 to much critical acclaim) have received airplay on BBC Radio 1 (Greg James), BBC 6 Music (Lauren Laverne & Nemone) and BBC Radio Scotland while the band have also been invited to perform live sessions for the Vic Galloway, Ricky Ross, Roddy Hart and Janice Forsyth shows, as well as a Quay Session live from the BBC Scotland television studios at Pacific Quay, Glasgow.
Each of the singles from "Shake Off Your Troubles" have featured on a host of Spotify's curated playlists, including The Indie List, Your Office Stereo, The Other List and Hot New Bands with "You and Someone Like Me" appearing on The Best of the Indie List 2017.
In 2017 the band were shortlisted in the Best Musical Group category at the Sunday Herald Scottish Culture Awards, having toured regularly with great success across the UK and Europe.
The Little Kicks are currently putting the finishing touches to a new studio album set for release in 2022.
"Across their catalogue, they have developed a sophisticated sound that is underpinned by outstanding live performances ... this is a band packed with talent and experience on an upwards trajectory. The best band on the night, it's easy to imagine The Little Kicks performing on bigger stages to larger audiences in the future." THE SKINNY
