Kid Adrift Oxytocin EP plus free download of Cyantific remix

| On 30, Jun 2010

Following on from a blinding performance on the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury this weekend, Kid Adrift has announced the release of the Oxytocin EP on July 12th 2010 through Island Records. A personal manifesto from Iain Archer, the brains behind the Kid Adrift project, it’s passionate, intense, and is set to establish him as a rare talent in 2010.

The title track Oxytocin leads with guitars, brutal beats and waves of dense electronics, whilst synthesized strings and mechanical beats bring the song to a thrilling crescendo. The rest of the EP hits with walls of electronica, heavy and propulsive, and illustrates the dance influences that infuse the band’s sound. With clear nods to Warp Records, it’s a testament to Kid Adrift that this is very much his own work – a new unique voice for music fans to discover.

Oxytocin, which has been added to the XFM evening playlist this week, has also been remixed by Hospital Records drum & bass duo Cyantific and is up for free download now here:

A provocative video to the track, created by producer High Contrast is due to be finished over the next few days, so keep an eye out for that. Kid Adrift will also be appearing at numerous festivals this summer, as well as headlining his own EP launch at the Old Blue Last next month.
