Foot On The Gas: Kritters vividly recall their youth on ‘What Do You Know’

With thoughts of their past whilst being young and when travelling was such a naive adventure, Kritters reflect on those moments deeply with their new single ‘What Do You Know‘.

Kritters is a two-piece indie electro-pop act who are based in both New York City and London, England. Formed by Rob Steadman and Kirini O.K, they make that deeply created sound that shows their world class intricacies in making a rare experience, that feels so lovingly created.

What do you know was written for and about our seventeen year old selves. Seventeen was an age at once painful and full of promise; we desperately wanted to escape, and we were tantalizingly close to really being able to. Rob and I both remember getting in cars or on bikes and just– WHOOSH, off and away. Certainly for us at seventeen music was key to figuring out who we would be in the world when we were finally free; now, looking back, we understand so much more keenly not just what we were escaping, but also the complicated reality of the world we were escaping to, and how little we knew of it.” – Kritters

Her voice is passionately delivered and with lots of emotion – the drumming is skilled and impressive which adds so much quality – as this unique story takes you for a riveting ride with them as they open up the back door for us to join their travels, to see what opened up their eyes before.

What Do You Know‘ from the South Bronx/UK indie electro-pop duo Kritters, is that moment when you remember those days when travelling was so exciting and had your heart beating so fast, as they drive us into a picture from their memories of these times. Life was so simple back then and your mind alive with possibilities, as you think back to what little you actually knew about this complex world.

”Combining elements of synth pop with a simple folk playground melody, this is a summer song inviting you to get up and dance away bad times and regrets accompanied by an imaginary band of synthesised players”.-Test Card Girl

This is the story of not going back, no matter what the magnetic pull says or does to your beating heart. You left for a reason and despite it being easy to go back, you are telling yourself to have the strength to overcome this lust to go again. Instead, the new plan should be to look for a new road that will make you truly happy, inside your deepest feelings of content.

Don’t Go‘ from the fast-rising Manchester electro-pop artist Test Card Girl, is a stunning array of synth-filled soundscapes that washes all over your mind to give you a feeling of relief, that you made the right decision to avoid heartbreak part two.

Taken off her electric new EP ‘Siren‘, New York singer-songwriter, indie-hip hop artist and actress Nikki Taylor, is back with the indie-pop fused single ‘Games‘.

With a voice that grabs your attention like a song that makes you stop. This is an electro-food fusion that makes the whole listen a happy one. This is about standing up for yourself as you learnt from feeling so low.

This is a fresh artist who is growing before our eyes, she has stopped the mind games around her and is on a mission for independence from unfit influences.

This is a poet who is ready to move into her own zone and Nikki Taylor’sGames‘ is an excellent track.
