Little Kicks – BBC Scotland Quay Session – November 23, 2022 – BBC Scotland –
The Little Kicks in session tonight – recorded on November 23, 2022 for BBC Scotland and Roddy Hart.
The Little Kicks are based in Aberdeen Scotland and have gained a reputation for their own distinctive brand of heartfelt electronic indie rock music.
The band’s previous album, “Put Your Love In Front Of Me” (released in late 2013) was part funded by Creative Scotland and met with critical acclaim both in the UK and further afield in Europe. Several album tracks including the lead single “Girl” and it’s B-side (“a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams”) have enjoyed national radio airplay on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 1, Radio Scotland and XFM. Following the album’s release the band completed three successful headline tours of the UK & Europe to a great response and also toured as main support for Public Service Broadcasting and We Were Promised Jetpacks in the UK.
Previously to “Put Your Love In Front Of Me”, the band’s debut album “Boxing Clever” was released in June 2009 and the bands second album release “The Little Kicks” was released on the 28th November 2011. Both releases received great critical acclaim in the UK music press and also found an audience further afield by being featured on several European and American blog and online radio sites.
The NME have said the band “produce a nice line in brittle funk alongside pocket epics they should be proud of” and IsThisMusic magazine have awarded each of the bands albums 4****/ 5 upon release. In the printed press The Scotsman named The Little Kicks as a “Band of the Year” and Q Magazine named the band as one of “Ten Scottish Bands You Maybe Haven’t Heard Of But Should”. The band have also previously been nominated as a finalist in the Best Live Act category in the Scottish Alternative Music Awards (Sama’s).
Tonight it’s a session promoting their latest release, “People Need Love” which was released on 30 September 2022 to very enthusiastic reviews.
