Kid Jupiter are a vivid London indie band who combine classic harmonies with modern messages to wreak warmth upon the nation, and, eventually, the world.
The group got off to a strong start in life, with national radio coverage of their a-cappella gender identity anthem “Grey Skirt", described as “brave and beautiful” (Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music). Further success came with their debut band single “Keeping Fit”, which landed on the official Hot New Bands playlist on Spotify.
With live shows that fall somewhere between “oomph” and “fizz”, including support slots for This Is The Kit and Calva Louise at the Roundhouse, the five-piece continue to be the outfit for all occasions, with songs to accompany any scenario. Among these are multiple odes to modern masculinity, depictions of anxiety and defiance in curiosity.
In 2020 Kid Jupiter look to cement their status as “ones to watch” with their latest single, the bouncing retro banger “Superglue”, giving everyone a reason to dance and a reminder that strength comes in numbers: “We can’t run marathons alone”.
