Kid Canaveral are a two-boy/two-girl group from Edinburgh. They write indiepop tunes you can move around and flail your limbs to. In true indie spirit, they have self-released four 7" singles and their debut album, Shouting At Wildlife, on their own label, Straight To Video Records. Formed in 2005 in St Andrews, Fife whilst the band were at university, this Scottish four-piece have been steadily growing in confidence over the past few years, attracting a loyal fan-base with consistently engaging live performances up and down the UK. They have completed 4 successful UK tours, as well a number of high profile support slots for artists such as KT Tunstall, Frightened Rabbit, Glasvegas, James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem), King Creosote and The Phantom Band. Kid Canaveral released their long awaited debut album, Shouting at Wildife, in July 2010. Across twelve tracks, the band showcase the breadth of their indie-rock and DIY-pop songwriting skills. The album has been met with wide critical acclaim from both the national press and the online blogosphere – with universal 4* reviews from the major Scottish music press, it has also featured in numerous end of year polls and was made album of the month by BBC Radio 1’s Scotland Introducing show. "Kid Canaveral showcase a sound too big to be Scotland's secret for much longer" The Fly “Our new favourite Scottish band who echo the power-pop days of the Undertones and XTC ” The Herald “Shouting At Wildlife is a thrilling, uplifting and generally all-round spiffing combination of indie-pop skills, lyrical wit, and choruses sung through smiles.” THE SKINNY **** (4 stars) “This debut is packed with singalong melodies, frisky jangles and a real sense of purpose. A jubilant and skilful racket.” THE LIST **** (4 stars)
